University of Virginia Professor of Political Science Jennifer Lawless joined GoLocal News Editor Kate Nagle on GoLocal LIVE where she spoke U.S. Senate taking up -- and having the votes -- to block President Donald Trump's emergency declaration that would allow for additional funding to build a border wall. 

According to The Hill, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Monday that he expects a resolution blocking President Trump's emergency declaration to pass the Senate, but he does not believe lawmakers will be able to override a veto.  

Lawless also spoke to freshman Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's rebuke of lawmakers who are criticizing fellow freshman Representative Illan Omar's questioning of certain lawmaker's support of the United States' relationship with Israel.
