House Votes 245-182 To Block Trump’s “Emergency”

CBS News reports:

The House of Representatives passed a resolution late Tuesday afternoon to terminate President Trump’s national emergency proclamation, which is also being challenged in court by a multi-state lawsuit. The final vote of 245 to 182 fell largely along party lines, but 13 Republicans joined Democrats in supporting the measure.

The bill, introduced by Democrats last week, would reverse the implementation of the president’s controversial proclamation, which he is relying on to unilaterally access $3.6 billion in military construction funds to build his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
