House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she’ll block an effort by Senate Republicans to reform the National Emergencies Act in exchange for their support of President Trump’s wall funding grab.

 “Republican Senators are proposing new legislation to allow the president to violate the Constitution just this once in order to give themselves cover,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said Wednesday. “The House will not take up this legislation to give President Trump a pass.”

The GOP-led Senate will vote Thursday on the House-passed resolution to revoke Trump’s national emergency declaration, which he is using to authorize moving $3.6 billion in military construction money to a border wall project.

Senate Republicans are looking for a way to back Trump’s spending move while at the same time asserting congressional control over the spending process.
