Democrats noted that America's border deficiencies have been debated for decades, and in making the declaration, Trump himself said he "didn't have to do it". That 30-day approval window would apply after Trump's current border declaration expires in one year, meaning it could remain in place for at least a year without congressional approval. Lee said the National Emergencies Act of 1976, which gives the president power to declare emergencies without Congress, allows the executive to act "like a king". "While there was attention on the issue I had hoped the ARTICLE ONE Act could begin to take that power back". Presidents have never before declared an emergency after Congress voted to deny them money for the same goal. If Trump would commit to signing a bill handcuffing future emergency declarations, some of them might support his border emergency declaration.
His defection alone could be enough to sink the House's resolution.
"Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country", Pelosi said.

His Wednesday schedule, released to the press, shows he is set to receive a series of policy briefings followed by a meeting with Republican senators and a photo with the new White House interns.

"Every single Democrat running for president should be made to answer: do they agree with the Speaker who stands in opposition to baseless impeachment charges, or will they risk fracturing the country by bowing to the radical elements in their party who want to disenfranchise the American people and overturn the legitimate and lawful result of the last election?"
A spokesperson for Lee's office told Reason that while there's nothing in the senator's bill to prevent this kind of behavior, "such obvious shenanigans would be politically unsustainable".
Trump indicated he wasn't considering the Republicans' efforts at political leverage in a tweet Wednesday afternoon. "But no president should go around Congress".

Nevertheless, Healy says that Lee's bill is a good first step toward reigning in presidential emergency declarations. "No, I don't think he's fit to be president of the United States". "It would be better if these things are time-limited", he tells Reason. Congress has never before voted to overturn a president's emergency declaration. There are now 31 active national emergencies, some of which date back to the Carter Administration.
"Anybody going against border security, drug trafficking, human trafficking, that's a bad vote", he said.
