The House will vote Tuesday on a joint resolution that would prevent President Trump from using a national emergency declaration to shift federal funding to the construction of a southern border wall.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced the schedule in a conference call Friday.
“The president is not above the law in any way, and this action he is taking is circumventing the Constitution of the United States and does violence to it,” Pelosi said.
The resolution was introduced by Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, on Friday and has 227 co-sponsors. Only one of them is a Republican.
