(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (TX-16) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump vetoed the resolution to end his unlawful national emergency declaration:

“Today, President Trump decided to grossly defy our system of checks and balances and ignore the first branch of government’s vote to defend our Constitution and end his fake emergency.

“El Pasoans know there is no national emergency at our southern border, and I’m looking forward to bringing their voice to the People’s House as I vote to override this veto.”
