The Quick Facts

  • This week, the Senate will vote on a resolution to overturn President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the southern border.
  • The resolution of disapproval passed in the House last week, largely along party lines.
  • Several Republican senators, including Senator Rand Paul, have indicated their support for the resolution, making it likely that it will pass in the Senate as well.
  • President Trump has said he will veto the resolution, and it is unlikely that opponents of the national emergency have the support to overturn a veto.

Food For Thought

Why is Congress’s resolution to block the president’s national emergency important? Should the Senate pass the resolution?
