The U.S. House voted to block President Trump’s emergency border wall declaration on Monday, delivering a stinging rebuke to the White House.
The chamber voted 245-182 for a resolution to end Trump’s emergency declaration. The president is attempting to use the declaration to circumvent Congress to secure billions of dollars in funding for a wall along the southern U.S. border.
All four Arizona Republicans — Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Debbie Lesko and David Schweikert — voted against the resolution. The five Democrats in the state’s delegation — Ruben Gallego, Raul Grijalva, Ann Kirkpatrick, Tom O’Halleran and Greg Stanton — cast votes in favor of blocking the emergency declaration.
