WASHINGTON – The House failed Tuesday to override President Donald Trump's veto of a congressional resolution aimed at halting his emergency declaration for the southern border. .

The battle continues in the courts where opponents of the wall, including the American Civil Liberties Union and more than a dozen states, are challenging Trump's authority to declare a national emergency to build a barrier at the border.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Democrats “reserved the rights" to pursue legal action.

“We’re going to fight the president in the Congress, in the courts and in the court of public opinion, and we will continue to fight,” Pelosi told USA TODAY in an exclusive interview.
