Democrats attempt to block national emergency with resolution; Republicans don’t budge

Local News

House Democrats take a long shot trying to stop President Donald Trump’s National Emergency Declaration with a resolution.

The president’s bold move; an effort to get more money to build his proposed border wall after Congressional Democrats refused to give it to him.

Though Republicans expressed some concern over the executive action, none has vowed to join the Democratic effort to terminate the national emergency, so the odds are slim.

At the same time, other efforts to block the president are playing out in court.
