Senate to Pass Measure Halting Trump's National Emergency

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday he expects the upper chamber to pass  a resolution  blocking President Donald Trump's emergency declaration.  As of Tuesday morning, Republican Sens.

Rand Paul, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Thom Tillis said they will  vote in favor  of the resolution, which  passed the House  last month.

Assuming all Democratic senators support the resolution, those four Republicans would provide the simple majority needed to send it to President Trump's desk.

But McConnell told reporters he doesn't think lawmakers will have enough votes to override a presidential veto.

That would require a two-thirds majority.

President Trump issued  the national emergency declaration in February.

It allows him access to certain government funding to pay for a U.S.-Mexico border wall without going through Congress.  The Senate is expected to vote on the resolution by March 15.
