McSally to back Trump on emergency declaration
By Tal Axelrod - 03/13/19 07:04 PM EDT

Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) announced Wednesday she will vote against a resolution blocking President Trump’s national emergency declaration after securing reassurances that no funding for Arizona military construction projects will be diverted for the border wall.

“Arizonans know there is a humanitarian and security crisis at the border – drugs are killing and harming loved ones in communities everywhere,” McSally said in a statement. “Now, it’s Congress’ turn to fully fund border security and our men and women in uniform.”

The Arizona Republican said she was assured in conversations with acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Trump and Vice President Pence that Trump's emergency declaration to build the border wall will not impact any military construction projects in Arizona.
