Congress rebukes Trump

Today, the U.S. Senate will pass a joint resolution nullifying President Trump’s national emergency declaration to build his border wall project without congressional authorization.  So far, at least eight Republican senators have announced their support of the resolution which has already passed the House of Representatives.  Although Trump said he will veto the resolution, and it appears Congress doesn’t have enough votes to override a veto, the fact that Congress is standing up to this blatantly unconstitutional abuse of executive power is politically significant;  and, it’ll come on the heels of new votes to oppose the president on other serious matters.  See:
