The big story…

House Passes Resolution to Block Trump’s Emergency Declaration for Border Wall

The House of Representatives passed a resolution Tuesday – with a 245-182 vote – to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration that would allow funds for a border wall on the U.S. southern border. CNN reports, “Thirteen Republicans voted with Democrats to pass the measure. The votes in favor of the resolution fell short of the two-thirds of the chamber needed to override a presidential veto. Trump has issued a veto threat on the measure.” The resolution now moves to the Senate where it has to be brought to a vote on the floor within 18 days.

Meet the Writer: Hazel Dequito

Hazel Dequito’s love for music and writing began at a very young age. When she was five she started taking piano lessons, vocal lessons and music theory classes. Her taste in music is diverse, as she enjoys listening to indie, alternative and some hip-hop. She wouldn’t fit her musical taste into any one category, as her preference changes with her mood. Read more in Devin Townsend’s report for CMN.
