Tell the Senate to Keep Up the Fight! Contact Your Senators to Encourage them to Continue Upholding the President’s Agenda January 11, 2019 The Senate has been a key part in backing the President’s promise on funding the border wall.  Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has refused to entertain any vote in the Senate on which the President did not agree.  This includes the House budget that Democrats crafted to strip border wall funding and reinstate taxpayer funding of abortion services overseas.
