House Dems to File Resolution Against Emergency Declaration 02/22/2019 House Democrats will file a resolution Friday aimed at blocking the national emergency declaration that President Trump has issued to help finance a wall along the Southwest border. Passage by the Democratic-run House seems likely. The measure would then move to the Republican-controlled Senate. If is should pass both chambers, the President says he will veto the measure. Its doubtful Congress could muster the two-thirds majorities in each chamber needed to override a veto.
