US House fails to override Trump veto, upholding border wall emergency

Updated : March 27, 2019 07:50 AM IST

Democrats who control the House did not attract enough Republican support, falling some three dozen votes short of the two-thirds majority vote needed to overturn Trump's veto.
With the 248-181 tally, Trump is now likely to continue scouring federal accounts for money he wants redirected to building a border wall, which he says is needed to curb illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
A coalition of 16 states sued in federal court in February to stop Trump's border wall emergency; another four states joined the lawsuit this month.
