The debate over funding for President Trump’s proposed border wall came to a head today in Washington.
Trump declared a national emergency to appropriate the funding from his proposed wall, triggering rebuke from the left and likely setting up a protracted legal fight.
Many of Nevada’s legislators spoke out against the emergency declarations, including Sens. Jacky Rosen and Catherine Cortez Masto criticizing Trump for a rejection of bipartisanship and undermining of Congress.
