"If Congress passes a resolution opposing any such national emergency proclamation, President Donald Trump could veto the resolution and Congress would likely have to live with the consequences of an inappropriate invocation of national emergency that Congress itself authorized in 1976," writes William Banks, professor emeritus of public administration and international affairs. His opinion piece, "Opinion: Declaration would defy Congress and abuse power," was published in Newsday. 02/11/19
