NPR: “The Republican-controlled Senate approved a resolution to terminate President Trump’s national emergency declaration at the U.S.-Mexico border, putting Congress on a path to its first veto confrontation with the Trump administration.”

“The president also tweeted that he looked forward to vetoing the measure, which he called ‘Democrat inspired.’

But in Thursday’s vote to block the president’s emergency declaration, 12 Republicans voted with all Senate Democrats to pass the resolution. The Democratic-controlled House approved it last month, 245-182, with just 13 House Republicans breaking with the White House.”
