On 2-26-2019, the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of H. J. Res 46, a resolution to reject and nullify President Donald Trump’s declaration of an emergency so he could shift as much as $6.7 billion of previously appropriated monies away from their intended recipients and used instead to build a wall along the southern border of the United States. The resolution passed by a margin of 245 yeas to 182 nays.
Then, on Thursday, 3-14-2019, the U.S. Senate passed the same resolution by a margin of 59 yeas to 41 nays. 25 hours after the Senate action, on 3-15-2019, President Trump vetoed the bill. The House will hold a vote on overriding the veto on March 26, 2019, and we need to work very hard between ow and then to see that this veto is overridden.
