Johnson shares thoughts on national emergency declaration

WASHINGTON, S.D. (WNAX) – The U.S. House voted to block President Trump’s emergency declaration, intended to get him billions of dollars to build the Mexican border wall.

The vote was 245 to 182, with 13 Republicans joining the majority.

Among those 13 was South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson.

Johnson says he has long been critical of the overuse of executive powers.

Johnson says he is still supportive of more security on the southern border.

The resolution now goes to the Senate which is evenly divided right now.
