Pelosi asks members to support resolution against emergency declaration

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) circulated Wednesday a letter asking members of Congress to sign onto a resolution to terminate President Trump’s border emergency declaration.

The resolution, presented by Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) who is the chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHS), will be introduced Friday.

“The President’s decision to go outside the bounds of the law to try to get what he failed to achieve in the constitutional legislative process violates the Constitution and must be terminated,” Pelosi wrote in her “Dear Colleague” letter.

Pelosi took the unusual step of sending the letter to both Democrats and Republicans in the House.
