U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, speaks to members of the media as he departs a House Democratic Caucus meeting on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, USA, Tuesday, March 26, 2019. Last month, Trump declared a national emergency to divert money already approved by Congress for the construction of barriers on the border between the United States and Mexico. Democrats and some Republicans worried that Trump bypassed legislature's power of power after lawmakers had only passed around $ 1.4 billion. $ Of the $ 5.7 billion Dollars that the president was looking for structures.
But Democrats could not get enough GOP legislators to back the measure. Both the House and the Senate have previously adopted the legislation to block the emergency declaration with bipartisan support.
Trump hopes to use the statement to secure $ 3.6bn. Dollars of the total $ 8 billion he wants to set limits. It would come from the Defense Ministry's military construction project. The president has claimed that he has full authority to divert the funds.
Although Congress cannot terminate the emergency declaration for now, Trump's action will still face its part of the investigation. Numerous states and outgroups have filed lawsuits that challenge the statement.
Litigation has partly cited Trump's own words last month when it said "I didn't have to do this" for cross-border financing ", but I'd rather do it much faster."
Despite the house's failure to override Trump's veto, conflict over the wall financing will not disappear. After serving as Defense Minister Patrick Shanahan, Monday said the Pentagon would move $ 1 billion. Dollars away from military construction projects to build the border wall, refused to move CEO Adam Smith, D-Wa. He said his committee had not approved it.
It can still go through as the Pentagon will claim that it has the power to use the funds.
Trump also requested 8.6 billion. Dollars for border wall construction in its budget 2020 budget, which could spark another standoff with the Democrats over the signature campaign promise.
