House to Vote to Terminate Trump's National Emergency

The House is set to vote Tuesday on a resolution that would terminate President Donald Trump's national emergency declaration to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall.  The measure will likely pass the Democrat-run lower chamber.

In a press conference on Monday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi denounced the president's declaration, saying it was unconstitutional.   "The president's power grab usurps that constitutional responsibility and fundamentally violates the balance of power envisioned by our founders," Pelosi said.  Rep.

Joaquin Castro — the  resolution's sponsor  — said last week that he has the support of more than 220 co-sponsors, including one Republican.  "This will require historic unity among members of Congress to make sure that this branch of government maintains its rightful place under the Constitution," Castro said.  If the resolution passes, it will then head to the Republican-controlled Senate, and if it passes there, it will go to the president, who is likely to veto it.

If that happened, both chambers of Congress would need a two-thirds majority 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.
