Jane Harman: ‘There Is No National Emergency’ at the Border
HARMAN: "Well, Susan Collins was first out saying that she would vote against this. Let's understand, first of all, there is no national emergency. There is a problem at our borders, plural, especially ports of entry with drugs, but there is no national emergency. Second of all, this was money, this is money duly appropriated by Congress for other purposes, especially military construction which is part of our military readiness that I think everybody in Congress thinks is a priority. And to move it away from projects where it has been either allocated or about to be allocated, but which have met the threshold to this makes no sense. I frankly think the Congress will be measured by how they make this vote this will be somebody’s 30-second spot against those who vote for the President on this issue."
