Representative Amash Moves to Block Trump’s Emergency Declaration
Article from The Hill by Juliegrace Brufke.
Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich) is joining Democrats in co-sponsoring a joint resolution to block President Trump‘s emergency declaration seeking additional funds to build physical barriers along the southern border.
Amash is the sole Republican to sign on to measure, according to Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Joaquin Castro (D-Texas), who is spearheading the efforts.
“Right now I believe that we’re at about 226 or 227 co-sponsors including one Republican, Justin Amash, and I look forward to getting more support as the days go on,” Castro told reporters on a call Friday.
Amash’s office said the congressman feels the situation does not qualify as a national emergency.

Seems like they want to start a war.
Hey Amash the DC Swamp stink is all over you. Are you proud to be a DC toilet treasure. aka P.O.S.?
They never heard the word veto.
Amash of the Muslim state of Michigan sounds more like one of the treasonous democrats that hate the citizens of America in favor of ever illegal in this country and/or trying to sneak into this sovereign nation.
It would be interesting to see who is behind Amash. Maybe it is George Soros, or is it because Amash is an Arab sympathizer and wants open borders so his relatives can come in with no hinderance. He has definitely changed since he was first elected to office. Another RINO perhaps?
Like all DEMONRATS and this half wit is a DEMONRAT to say that there is no emergency on the nations southern border is ludicrous. As a Texas citizen I live very near the border and there is most definitely a crisis on the border the first of them being the illegals that pour over, thru, around and under that border daily. With some of those illegals having very serious illnesses that are being reintroduced to the United States that were or were thought to be eradicated from the United States decades ago. Things like Measles, mumps rubella, whooping cough, TB tuberculous.
The second and perhaps the worst of them is the disease called liberalism, democrats, leftist, progressives, DEMONRATS. The democrat party has become a scourge on society and in fact on man kind as a whole and that scourge need to be dealt with in a very very harsh manner.
ANYONE THAT DOESN’T STAND WITH MY PRESIDENT CAN GO TO HELL AND I WILL DO ANYTHING TO KICK THEM OUT OF OFFICE.
Why are you calling those NWO renegades “GOP” which stands for Grand Old Party of Republicans. They are supporting the LEFTISTS. They are NOT Republicans.
Is his name Amash or Amess either one is bad.
Rep. Amas is such a RINO/Establishment PUKE!
A new AG, Donald, get this guy going after the SOB,s that are causing all the trouble. Turn the siyuation around so the demos are on defensive. And where the hell are FISA judges??
However it is spelled he is A MESS. Let him move to the Dim-o-crap party if he wants to run.
