Castro Promises Lawsuit Against Trump’s Emergency Declaration

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s Situation Room, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) stated that if President Trump declares a national emergency or tries to move around money to fund a border wall, “we’ll challenge him in Congress. We’ll challenge him in the courts.”

“I am prepared, if the president does declare a national emergency to build his border wall, to file a joint resolution under the National Emergencies Act that would essentially terminate his declaration,” Castro said.

He later added, “I believe that there will be a lawsuit filed… We will file, likely, a joint resolution to negate or terminate his declaration, and hopefully take a vote on that.”
