House Democrats readying bill possibly Friday to block Trump's border emergency

Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump during the

A group of 16 states, including California, New York and Colorado, filed a lawsuit Monday against Trump's emergency declaration.

The firm said, "The diversion of funds is likely to be held up in the courts for most or all of the remainder of President Trump's first term", Yahoo Finance reported.

So far, 92 lawmakers have joined Castro in backing the legislation, which under House rules could advance within weeks to a debate by the full chamber, which is controlled by Democrats.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration has yet another lawsuit on its shoulder as a couple of landowners in the Mission, Texas area where the border wall will rise have taken legal actions against the US government. "I'm fighting his idea of what he thinks we need", Gaytan said of the U.S. President. She said the sixteen states would have to present satisfying reasons for the lawsuits.

Trump announced the emergency in order to bypass Congress, which approved only a quarter of the $5.6 billion he wanted for the wall in a spending bill.

A spokesperson for the UK's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport department said the review of 5G security was "ongoing". The U.S. has accused her of fraud and violating global sanctions against Iran, which she and Huawei have both denied.

"I write to invite all Members of Congress to cosponsor Congressman Joaquin Castro's privileged resolution to terminate this emergency declaration", Pelosi reportedly wrote.

Trump has promised a veto, which would be hard for Congress to override. Filed on behalf of the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition, it says there is no emergency to justify the president's action and accuses Trump and other members of his administration of violating Constitutional limits on their authority.

According to Politico, "The Senate Democrats' resolution of disapproval comes as House Democrats plan to introduce a similar resolution disapproving of Trump's emergency declaration Friday". However, she made clear she was anxious about the precedent that could be set by Trump going around Congress to fund the wall.

The Associated Press reports that House Leader Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday sent a letter to lawmakers in both parties that said the House will "move swiftly" to pass the resolution.

In the National Emergencies Act of 1976, it is stated that Congress has the power to come up with a resolution that will end Trump's national emergency declaration. He has repeatedly sought to paint a picture of conditions at the border, though illegal border crossings are down from a high of 1.6 million in 2000.
