TL;DR

GOP seeks compromise on Trump border emergencyWASHINGTON House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to make it harder for Republicans to avoid an embarrassing Senate rebuff of President Trumps effort to steer billions of extra federal dollars to building barriers along the U. If Trumps border emergency stands he could divert $3. The House will not take up this legislation to give President Trump a pass. It has long looked like the Republican led House in voting to block Trumps border emergency. Republicans control 53 seats and all Democrats are expected to vote for the disapproval resolution which means it has enough votes to pass the Senate. Tillis had engaged in the talks with Lee and Pence in hopes of finding a compromise that would allow him to change his mind and vote against the disapproval resolution. Tillis told The Hill Wednesday that his vote would depend on the outcome of the talks with the White House. Several other Republican senators are expected to vote for the disapproval resolution. Trump made clear he was not backing away from his border emergency. He told reporters that he has told GOP senators to vote any way you want
