US House lawmakers  are expected to pass a Democratic measure today annulling President Donald Trump's declared emergency on the southern border. 

This is also seen as  an effort that appeared to earn growing support among Senate Republicans.

House of Representatives, Speaker, Nancy Pelosi told reporters that  the House vote, expected  to be taken up today, will serve to defend  the democracy.

Trump's February 15 emergency declaration gives him access to billions of dollars to construct his wall on the Mexican border, beyond the nearly $1.4 billion that Congress allocated for construction of border barriers.

But the House of Representatives, run since January by Democrats, has the support necessary to terminate the emergency, dealing a stern rebuke to  the  president controversially seeking to expand his executive powers.
