Border-wall-to-wall confrontation could lead to another government shutdown this fall

nearvideo trump puts a Veto against the resolution in the Congress to block the southern border emergency

It is unclear what legal problems can consume Congress between now and the end of September, but one thing is for sure: President: Trump’s veto to stop a measure, its national state of emergency for the border to rekindle the potential of another government shutdown on Oct 1.

Yes, the President and the Congress only sparred over the boundary-wall, which ended during the 35-day shutdown in January of this year. You could be back with him again soon, because Trump is chosen, the Congress, testing the limits of the Constitution and the separation of powers, and of the mining resources of the invoices for wall-money.

It was assumed that the party produce the cross-posture on Capitol Hill, the forged, a financing agreement could be cooperation and goodwill in the year 2020. But, President Trump national emergency Declaration can have any charity left have condemned in the Congress.

The house and the Senate lack the votes to override Trump the veto. The house is on shy 40 votes. The Senate, with eight votes from the mark. The house is still set to try the override on March 26, but it is almost certain that the overwrite will go — and President Trump will use his explanation of the various military resources to cover the cost of the wall, unless blocked by a Federal court.


Now the administration has presented the legislature with a list of what details to pay a pool of military projects, you can use the money for the wall. The administration is called the lump-of-money “unobligated.” It amounts to $12.9 billion.

“He plans, funds will be needed for real, effective operational priorities and projects, and directs them to his vanity wall. That can help, in support of his political base, but it could be said at the expense of military bases and the men and women of our armed forces who are dependent on you,” Sen. Jack Reed, Dr. I., the top Democrat on the Armed Services Committee.

The Congress is just for the preparation of the 12 appropriations bills that Fund the government for the fiscal year ‘20. Almost all of the Democrats, and frankly, many Republicans, described Trump’s efforts to bypass Congress as brazen. Legislators from both parties, Congressional prerogatives of the purse have to be guarded closely, so it is probably a cross-party group of MPs to install restrictions to curb the President from diverting funds in the next round to spend, without the direct consent of Congress.

Therein lies the Problem.

President trump, the budget request calls for $8.6 billion in funding for fiscal year ‘20. The Congress is likely to grant the President a part of the money – but not all. Will he try to sidestep Congress again? It is trump to veto bills where the Congress is trying to re-claim, to circumvent its power of the purse, or the curb is its ability to the traditional process? This is where a possible shutdown.


Meanwhile, it is unclear what can address to the Congress, the rest of the year.

Infrastructure? There is no action. Washington recently saw another “infrastructure week”, but there was no sign of progress.

There is a lot of talk about trade, not forged administration, but still, a formal agreement with China. The negotiators of the ink has to replace a Pact with Canada and Mexico, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Still, there is no time to consider, plan for the house or the Senate, the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement (USMCA). US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, met last week with house Democrats, but it is anyone’s guess, if everything that could move through Congress on trade.

The agenda in the Senate is focused mostly on the confirmation of judges and other administration nominees. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has a few more in the queue for the next week, but the actual GOP agenda is unclear.


Tax reform is made, for good or bad. The Republicans can’t take back, nor a trick of the repeal and replace ObamaCare, the GOP is trained on problems of the Democrats. McConnell, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and house Republican conference Chairman Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming., have a routine to pillory Dems put shares on their own internal. GOP leaders have just pointed out, the problems the Democrats had. with Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, among others The house Republican leadership brass routinely Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif went to the House., to hold for the execution of Omar and Tlaib in chess.


McConnell’s set up a procedural vote to start debate next week on the Green New Deal, supported by Ocasio-Cortez and others. The Senate needs 60 votes just to debate.


Senate Republicans don’t support certainly, the Green New Deal. McConnell’s gambit is Democrats on the record as either in support of or opposition to the measure. You look at all of the Senate Democrats for the President not to run: not to mention Kirsten Gillibrand in New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota — Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. McConnell clearly love would you register a roll-call vote, where Democrats are in the favor of the Green New Deal. Then, the Republicans crow about could be radical, and out-of-step have been the Democrats.

Or, McConnell also would enjoy Democrats against the Green New Deal. He could then exclaim that Ocasio-Cortez-the plan was to drastically, even for the most liberal and environmentally-friendly voices in the Democratic party. One way or the other, McConnell would get something he wanted.

But, it is unclear whether he would do something definitive. The vote set for next week is only a procedural vote. It is two steps away from an actual up-or-down vote on the underlying measure. To start, each vote to prevent debate — or in order that the measure of the ground-confused is, when it comes to messaging. Sure, McConnell could say that Ocasio-Cortez, a remote, the resolution was to merit debate. But this is not the strongest argument to be in the policy.


This is why the legislative agenda on Capitol Hill is so messed up. There is no clear path, which can reach the pages in the coming months. It will be a fight over the raising the debt ceiling this summer. Like the sides, is unclear. And the national emergency Declaration is probably a dead point, yet on the border wall in September.

In other words, the rest of 2019 could reflect on how the year started.
