House of Representatives to Vote on Measure to Overturn Trump’s Emergency Declaration on Border Wall House of Representatives vote today to national emergency declaration.

The House of Representatives will vote today on a measure that could block President Donald Trump’s efforts to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The vote will consider whether or not the President’s declaration of a national emergency was just, or if it undermines the Constitution. Although many Republicans are expected to vote against the measure, the House – controlled by the Democratic party – is likely to easily pass this resolution today.

President Trump said if the measure is passed in the House, he will use his veto power for the first time since taking office, sending the vote to the Republican-led Senate.

Two Republican senators, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Susan Collins of Maine, said they would vote to block Trump’s national emergency declarations, but a majority of Republicans are expected to vote in its favor.
