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.

    Trump has ALWAYS had the authority, just not the guts to ignore Congress BS and VETO the crap spending bill he just signed.

    The courts and Congress have no standing to stop a Constitutional Executive Branch action! ……………Why?

    Separation of powers.
    The Courts have ZERO standing on a National Security matter.
    Conversely, the President can not block a SCOTUS decision.

    An Executive Branch National Security Emergency declaration is beyond the purview of Congress and the Courts to legally intercede!

    Over two years wasted.
