Trump announces news conference at U.S.-Mexico border within three weeks

Building a wall on the southern border to stop migration to the US was Trump's signature campaign issue in 2016

A majority of Republicans, or 50 percent, said that they would remain "much more likely" to vote for a Republican lawmaker who backed Trump's national emergency, 20 percent of GOP voters said that they would "somewhat more likely" back a member of Congress if they backed the emergency, while only 11 percent of Republican voters said it would make it less likely for them to vote for a member of Congress if they supported Trump's national emergency. If it stands, the declaration would let Trump divert $3.6 billion from military construction projects to build border barriers, even though Congress had voted to limit him to less than $1.4 billion for barrier construction in the budget.

GOP senators are hoping that if Trump endorses that bill, more Republicans would oppose a separate resolution, set for a vote Thursday, that would block the border emergency he proclaimed last month.

To win Senate approval, the House resolution needs four Republican votes along with those of all its Democrats.

Lee told a reporter for The Hill that he'll vote for the disapproval resolution.

Still, it would call attention to congressional opposition to one of his chief campaign pledges: building the wall.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ruled out an ongoing Senate Republican-led effort to avoid a showdown with President Donald Trump over his declaration of a national emergency.

At stake are billions of dollars in funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border that Trump is demanding but Congress has refused to fully provide. Since the Democratic-run House voted last month to block Trump, Senate passage of the resolution rejecting the border emergency would send it to the White House, where it would face a certain veto - Trump's first. The resolution requires a two-thirds majority vote in both houses of Congress to override a veto.

Vice President Mike Pence met with Republican senators this week to push Lee's plan, saying Trump would support it.

Trump tweets: "We have a MAJOR NATIONAL EMERGENCY at our Border and the People of our Country know it very well!"

Schakowsky said, "We need to get rid of Donald Trump and I don't think impeaching in the House is going to do it and so we need to do it by the 2020 election". The official was not authorized to publicly private conversations and spoke on condition of anonymity.

With roughly a dozen Senate Republicans either committed to voting to disapprove of the president or weighing their options, some in the GOP are trying to cut a deal with the president to scale back his national emergency power so that Congress must approve future emergencies. Sen.

In a statement issued later, the Utah senator said, "Unfortunately, it appears the bill does not have an immediate path forward, so I will be voting to terminate the latest emergency declaration". One said Tillis told his colleagues he could change his vote if Trump was indeed ready to curb presidential powers to declare emergencies without Congress' approval.
