Bennet Statement on Senate Passage of Resolution to Terminate President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration

Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the statement below following his vote in support of a resolution of disapproval of President Trump’s national emergency declaration on the border:

“Today, a majority of the Senate stood up for the Constitution and against the president’s sham national emergency declaration. Those who endorsed his declaration effectively condoned raiding money from our military – including from a critical mission at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado – to take land from our farmers and ranchers to build a wall that President Trump claimed Mexico would pay for. You can vote to uphold that declaration, or you can call yourself a conservative, but you cannot do both.”
