Rep. John Garamendi appeared on CNN Wednesday to discuss the bill he is introducing to prevent President Donald Trump from using disaster relief funds to pay for the border wall.
"If the president goes over and overrides the appropriation processes, overrides the authority of Congress by moving significant amounts of money from one program to another, there is a thing called we’ll see you tomorrow, Mr. President. You’re going to have to come back here for all of your programs for everything."
"The coast guard provides a wall 1500 miles at sea. Now could the president take that money? He could. But I’ll guarantee you there would be tomorrow and when tomorrow comes the president would pay a heavy price in other things he might think are important," he said.
