HeadlineFeb 25, 2019

House Democrats are set to vote Tuesday on a resolution blocking President Trump’s national emergency declaration to construct a U.S.-Mexico border wall. It’s unclear, though, if such a measure would pass in the Republican-controlled Senate. Trump has vowed to veto the bill. Meanwhile, The Washington Post is reporting a bipartisan group of 58 former national security officials will publicly rebuke the president’s national emergency declaration today.
