How the House Voted to Block Trump’s National Emergency Declaration – New York Times

If the Senate also passes the bill, Mr. Trump has promised that he would veto the bill to protect his emergency declaration.

Several Republicans voted to block President Trump’s emergency declaration, including Representative Will Hurd of Texas, the only Republican lawmaker to represent a district on the United States border with Mexico.

Democrats would need a supermajority, or more than two-thirds of the House and Senate, in future votes to override a veto by Mr. Trump.

Each representative’s vote will be available soon.
