Trump's 'power grab' violates founders' vision: Pelosi

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday said Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives would vote on a resolution on Tuesday aimed at ending President Donald Trump's emergency declaration on border security.

Pelosi said the legislative measure is crucial to maintaining the 'separation of powers'.

House Democrats introduced the resolution early on Friday, taking the first step to challenge Trump's assertion that he could take money Congress had appropriated for other activities and use it to build the wall.

Pelosi predicted the resolution would pass the Democratic-controlled House.

Action would then move to the Republican-majority Senate, where the measure's future is less clear.
