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.
