WASHINGTON – Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) today voted in support of H.J.Res. 46, which would terminate President Donald J. Trump’s February 15, 2019, national emergency declaration intended to fund his border wall. Congressman Gonzalez is an original co-sponsor. The measure passed the House by a vote of 245-182.
