House Dems Move to Stop Trump's Emergency Declaration

House Democrats filed a measure to block President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration to build a wall at the southern border.

According to  The Associated Press , a staff aide introduced the resolution during a pro forma session of the House Friday.

From here, it will likely pass a vote in the Democratic-run House next week.

The measure's sponsor, Rep.

Joaquin Castro, told reporters Friday he has support from more than 220 co-sponsors, including one Republican.

The resolution will then head to the Republican-controlled Senate.

If it passes there, it will go to the president, who is likely to veto it.

If that were to happen, a two-thirds majority in both the House and the Senate would be needed to override the veto.  President Trump has been  hit with several legal challenges  since declaring a national emergency.  The declaration  allows the president to access certain government funding to pay for a border wall without going through Congress.
