On February 15, President Trump declared a National Emergency on the US-Mexico border. He declared the emergency in order to fund the border wall, since Congress has refused to support funding Trump’s wall. Many have questioned the Presidents authority to call a national emergency to fund the wall 

On February 26, the House of Representatives voted against the Emergency in a vote of 245 to 182. Just 13 House Republicans voted against the emergency but many saying they do support a border wall.  

The bill then moved to the US Senate and on March 14, the Senate rejected the national emergency. The vote was 59 to 41 with 12 Senate Republicans joining the Democrats against the emergency.  

On March 15, President Trump gave his first veto on the resolution that would block his national emergency. Since Congress does not have enough votes to override the veto, it’s likely the Presidents plans with continue.
