Harris Votes to Terminate National Emergency Declaration

WASHINGTON, DCU.S. Senator Kamala D. Harris (D-CA) on Thursday released the following statement after the Senate passed H.J. Res. 46, a resolution that terminates the president’s declaration of a national emergency at the Southern border:

“With the passage of today’s resolution to overturn the president’s declaration of a fake emergency, the Senate did its job and sent a clear message that the American people will not pay to carry out the president’s vanity project. 

“From the outset, I have opposed every effort to build the wall and I will continue to challenge this reckless decision. As a career prosecutor, I focused much of my work on transnational criminal organizations and I know building a wall is not the solution to drug trafficking. We don’t need it.”
