The House on Tuesday failed to override President Donald Trump'sveto of a resolution that would have terminated his declaration of a national emergency at the southern US border, leaving the matter to federal courts where several lawsuits challenging the decision have been filed.
Lawmakers voted 248-181 to overturn Trump's veto, but that fell 38 votes shy of the required two-thirds margin.
But their veto override attempt seems certain to fall short of the two-thirds majority they will need to succeed later Tuesday.
