MoveOn Applauds Congress for Revoking Trump’s Fake National Emergency Declaration, Urges Congress to Defund Anti-Immigrant Agenda

WASHINGTON - Today, a bipartisan majority in the Senate passed the Castro Resolution to revoke Trump’s fake national emergency declaration and fight his anti-immigrant agenda.

Emma Einhorn, MoveOn Campaign Director, had the following statement:
 
“When Trump announced his illegal power grab to push his despicable, anti-immigrant agenda, we saw the country rise up in response. In just 72 hours, more than 100 organizations came together and launched 277 actions in 48 states. Today, we celebrate the bipartisan majority in the Senate who voted to protect our democracy and block Trump’s hateful and wasteful wall.
 
“The fight is not over. Trump has already shown, in so many ways, his complete disregard for the law and the will of the American people. Trump will likely veto this legislation and order his deportation machine at ICE and CBP to continue to abuse its power and torment our communities. If Trump vetoes this legislation, we call on Congress to override it, and to do everything in its power to defund hate by cutting agents, detention beds, and demilitarizing our border in the 2020 budget fight.”
