Lawmakers in Washington, D.C. continue to debate whether or not the constitution gives the president the authority to declare a national emergency as it pertains to the U.S.'s southern border with Mexico.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Monday a measure aimed at blocking the declaration would have enough votes to pass the republican-led senate, but President Donald Trump would likely veto the bill.
“I think what is clear in the Senate is that there will be enough votes to pass the resolution of disapproval, which will then be vetoed by the president and then, in all likelihood, the veto will be upheld in the House,” McConnell said to the Washington Post.
Members of the House of Representatives continue to debate as well, including Wisconsin Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner and Mark Pocan.
The two joined John Mercure on Wisconsin's Afternoon News Monday. Listen to their conversations above.
