Democrats signaled a protracted fight — both on Capitol Hill and in the court system — to challenge Trump's national emergency declaration.

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, objected to the attempt to bring the bill forward, arguing that passing the legislation would be "fundamentally undermining the principle of separation of powers that is so core to our liberty."
The rising Democratic star is privately engaging with his donors and supporters about his next move. Two of the options on the table include either running for president in 2020 or for John Cornyn's Senate seat.
