WASHINGTON - House Democrats plan to file a resolution as soon as Friday that's aimed at blocking President Donald Trump's declaration of an emergency at the Southwest border. That could set up a vote by the full House by mid-March. The clash is over a declaration that Trump is using to try spending billions of dollars beyond what Congress has authorized to start building border barriers. Passage by the Democratic-run House seems likely. The measure would then move to the Republican-controlled Senate, where there may be enough GOP defections for approval.
