NAACP News: President Trump’s Veto of the Resolution Rejecting His Wall is Upheld

BALTIMORE, MD (STL.News) The NAACP released the following statement:

Yesterday the U.S. House voted by a margin of 248 yeas to 181 nays not to override President Trump’s veto of the resolution – which had passed both the House and the Senate with strong bi-partisan support earlier – which would have rejected and nullified his declaration of an emergency so he could shift as much as $6.7 billion of previously appropriated monies away from their intended recipients and used instead to build a wall along the southern border of the United States.
