    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), ‘strongly advised #45 against declaring a National Emergency at our Southern borders. McConnell also made a point of not pressuring Senators to support #45; instead he urged them to vote according to the consciences and political interests. In early March, McConnell attended a party lunch. He canvassed the room and found no one supported #45’s National Emergency. What is glaringly missing from McConnell’s urging to Senators is how they are to represent their Constituents ~ not to vote based on their consciences and certainly NOT vote as per their political interests! It seems in McConnell’s 30 yrs as Senator he has forgotten the reason why he and all Senators are there. All members of the House and Senate are there to vote per the voice of their constituents. Period. Override #45’s planned Veto of this ridiculous and useless Wall. #nowall
