The Senate voted 54-41 for a resolution to reject the national emergency and therefore stop the emergency funding for the border wall. The funding was to be reallocated from the military, and 127 military projects would be affected. The Democrats all voted to end the national emergency and were joined by 11 Republicans. However, the Senate does not currently have enough votes to overrule a presidential veto on the matter.
