  • President Trump Vetos Resolution That Ends His National Emergency Declaration

While Congress is unlikely to muster the votes to override the veto, the rebuke from some members of his own party left Trump politically wounded, at least temporarily, as immigration and his planned wall along the US southern border become a flashpoint again in the 2020 presidential campaign.

President Trump will deliver remarks in the Oval Office at 3:30 p.m. ET, White House says.

President Trump on Friday used the first veto of his administration to reject a bipartisan resolution that sought to block his declaration of a national emergency at the border, a move nearly certain to kill the measure.

The resolution passed the GOP-controlled Senate by a vote of 59-41 - with 12 Republicans defying the president - after it was approved by the Democrat-controlled House.

A dozen Republicans had joined Senate Democrats in approving the joint resolution on Thursday, but together they did not reach the two-thirds majority that would be required to override Trump's veto.

He's a workmanlike receiver, but during his time in New England, he could ultimately unlock more of his potential. He's caught 79 passes for 769 yards and five touchdowns in his career with the 49ers, Texans and Lions.


Trump had sought to frame the issue as voting for him or for "Nancy Pelosi, Crime and the Open Border Democrats". "This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier". "This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Country", the president tweeted. "Watch, when you get back to your State, they will LOVE you more than ever before!" he said. That declaration was an effort to circumvent Congress to secure more money for his southern border wall.

The other Republicans who voted to oppose the declaration were Sens.

Recent months have seen a surge in unauthorized crossings of the USA border with Mexico.

The declaration is already the subject of a legal challenge. The large numbers have put a strain on immigration enforcement, although critics say a wall would do little to discourage the crossings since many of those apprehended at the border turn themselves in voluntarily.

On Friday, Attorney General William Barr also said his emergency order was "clearly authorized under the law".
