Rounds believes there is an emergency on the border

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – A dozen republican Senators joined democrats in blocking the national emergency resolution that the President declared to build the Mexican border wall.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds supported the President but says the law the President used needs to be changed.

Rounds says voted yes despite his concerns about the law.

Rounds says he believes there is an emergency on the border.

The President has said he will veto the resolution and continue with plans to move money to border wall construction.
