    So?

    What are they going to do about it?

    This was expected. It's also expected that Trump will veto it and his veto will stand.

    No, they'll wait for him to veto it, fail to overturn the veto and then win in court.

    Frankly, I'm surprised 11 of the 12 of them had the spine to do it.

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    A president does have the legal authority to declare a national emergency. The congress gave the president that authority in 1976. I don't know how a court can overturn that.

    We cannot trust Roberts to remain on the Americans'side.
    The Supreme Court must become Ruthless, and soon, to arrive the future of the pro-America court Trump has been constructing.
