WASHINGTON — House Democrats pushed ahead Friday with a measure that seeks to terminate President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration that he issued last week in order to circumvent Congress and build his wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, introduced a joint resolution in the House that would repeal the president’s declaration. The measure was filed during the chamber’s pro forma session, a senior Democratic aide confirmed Friday morning, since lawmakers are on recess and don’t return to Washington until Monday.
