Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, is the latest to announce his support for a House-passed resolution aimed at blocking President Trump's emergency declaration, and with it the prospect of spending an additional $3.6 billion for a border wall whose main intent is to placate either his political base or right-wing talk show hosts - or both.
"We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn't authorize it", Paul said. "If we take away those checks and balances, it's a risky thing", Paul added, according to the Bowling Green (Ky.) Daily News.
Paul joined GOP Sens. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska in opposing Trump's declaration - a reflection of some resistance within the Republican Party to what some lawmakers see as executive overreach and a challenge of the constitutional separation of powers.
Thirteen Republicans in the House joined Democrats last week to pass a resolution to block Trump's emergency declaration. At the same time, he signed an emergency declaration to shift $3.5 billion from military construction accounts to the border wall. But the president is facing lawsuits for the emergency declaration.

If the resolution does reach Trump's desk, the US leader has promised to veto it, which would represent his first use of veto powers while in office.
Paul's announcement, coming from an-otherwise close ally of the president, lays bare the discomfort many Republicans have had with the emergency declaration. With all 47 Senate Democrats expected to oppose it as well, four Republican votes would be enough to secure the resolution's passage. Other Republicans voting in favor of the resolution include Sens.
On Saturday night, Paul reportedly praised Trump in his speech to about 200 Kentucky Republicans, the Bowling Green Daily News reported, before turning abruptly to announce his opposition to the president's emergency declaration.
The Senate is poised to vote on the measure this month. None of the undecided senators can do anything either to spare Trump the inevitable veto or, in all likelihood, to prevent Trump from proceeding with his plans to build the wall. "Today, I think he's wrong, not on policy, but in seeking to expand the powers of the presidency beyond their constitutional limits", Paul wrote. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., also suggested that the president could use existing funding sources that don't require a national emergency. "I think the president can spend what he would like to spend, we can get to the $5.7 billion, without having to invoke the emergency process".
