Thune undecided about national emergency declaration

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – A resolution blocking President Trumps emergency declaration for funding the Mexican border wall in now in front of the Senate. It was defeated earlier this week in the House.

South Dakota Senator John Thune says he is undecided right now.

The President has called the border situation an emergency. Thune says there are issues that do need immediate action.

Thune says most of the problems are connected to the lack of a coherent immigration policy.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the vote will be held in the next three weeks.
