Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Illinois Democrat, on Sunday said she believes there are enough votes in the Senate to pass a resolution disapproving of President Trump's recent emergency declaration the White House says will allow him to tap unspent money to construct a border wall.  “Now, whether we have enough for an override and veto, that’s a different story,' Ms. Duckworth said on ABC’s This Week, “But frankly, I think there’s enough people in the Senate who are concerned that what he’s doing is robbing from the military and the [Defense Dept] to go build this wall,” she said. Under the National Emergencies Act, Congress can pass a resolution disapproving of Mr. Trump’s emergency declaration. It takes a simple majority vote in the House and the Senate to pass.
