House Passes Measure To Halt National Emergency

House Democrats pass a measure which will potentially halt President Trump’s emergency declaration for border wall funding.

The lower chamber passed the measure in a 245 to 182 vote on Tuesday.

All Democrats voted for the measure, including 13 GOP representatives.

If the Senate also passes the measure, President Trump is expected to use his first veto reinstating the need for border wall construction.

The only way lawmakers would be able to override the veto is through a two-thirds supermajority vote in both the upper and lower chamber.

The Senate is expected to vote on the measure by mid-March.
