you watching kpix 5 news. >> we are establishing the congressional record on the subject and we will have that vote in the congress. our top story at 6:30 pm, nancy pelosi says she will call for a vote in about 10 days to override president trump's veto but democrats face an uphill battle to topple his declaration of an emergency along the southern border. this was the scene in san diego earlier this week when a large group of migrants believed to beyond her us residents, cut their way into the country with scissors. >> they had like a scissor and they were cutting the fence thing off. i'm like, wait, what is going off? then they cut it and people the border breach. he said the loan agent at the fence could only do so much before radioing for support. agents later arrested 53 people. the ayes are 59.
6:31 pm
the nayes are 51. >> congress -- pelosi is arguing president trump -- it was an embarrassing blow to the president from his own party. >> congresses vote to deny the crisis on the southern border is a vote against reality. it is against reality. it is a tremendous national emergency. it is a tremendous crisis. >> as promised, the president delivered his first ever veto yesterday to quash a bipartisan push back. house nancy losi said the house plans to override the president's veto later this month. it will require a 2/and the sen which seems unlikely but the speaker told kpix 5's katie nelson today it is a matter of principle. >> what the president is doing
6:32 pm
does violence to the constitution. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi said democrats will not give up in the face of president trump's first retail. >> we will see how far the president wants to go with this. >> reporter: it all relates to the president wanting funding for the border wall. he went to congress first to ask for the money and when they said no, he declared a national emergency to get the money anyway. august and passed a resolution to terminate the emergency. >> the ayes are 59, the nayes are 41. 12 republican senators cross the aisle and voted with democrats to end the emergency, saying the president had exceeded his authority. >> it should have been a lesson to him to see that 12 republicans in the senate voted against his usurping of power from the congress of the united states. >> president trump says he simply is exercising his constitutional power. >> congress has the freedom to pass this resolution. and i have the duty to veto it.
6:33 pm
>> reporter: democrats say they could challenge the emergency in court, claiming it are not constitutional. >> we have already, by sending a bill to the president, established something very strong, the intent of congress and that has its way in both the public court and public opinion and the courts of law. >> to understand the constitutional questions that democrats are raising, we have to go back and talk about the history of the national emergencies act. it was first passed in congress in 1976. it was immediately after watergate and was supposed to limit presidential power because it gave congress the right to end an emergency simply by passing a declaration. the simple majority was all that was needed. if this does end up in court, the supreme court justices would actually be looking at the intent of congress when they passed that act.
6:34 pm
>> let me ask you this. the number of times presidents have declared an emergency, national emergency is what, more than 50 times? >> it is 53. >> has congress ever voted to override one of those emergencies? >> no. >> so this is unprecedented. >> completely. the way this came into being is the president, as far back as fdr started declaring emergencies but there were really not rules around them so in 1976, right after watergate when congress said wow, nixon had too much power, let's put some more checks and balances into effect, they actually passed the act to create the rules that allowed them to end those emergencies. >> if this would end the emergency, then how come the simple vote of the house and senate doesn't ended simply because it is not a 2/three vote? >> yes because they passed the resolution to end the emergency and president trump vetoed that. now they don't have the 2/3 majority needed to override the veto. >> what makes nancy pelosi think she has record recourse?
6:35 pm
it is the rule that it has to pass by 2/3. >> it goes back to the issue of legislative intent because trump used this act to go around congress and actually settle a policy dispute which has never before happened in the history of this act. where pelosi is saying, we might have constitutional challenge this is what was the intent of congress in 1976 which created this act. was it to set rules about how to end emergencies or was it to give presidents a backdoor to go around congress and settle these policies? >> so that might be settled in the supreme court then? >> it very well could be. >> thank you. a memorial is growing of the christchurch hospital in new zealand where survivors of a merciless attack on two local mosque are being treated. meanwhile, the death toll has
6:36 pm
climbed. >> >> reporter: mourners gathered at separate memorials to honor the 50 people slaughtered in the middle of friday prayers at mosques here in christchurch, new zealand. the 28-year-old suspected gentian -- gunman showed no remorse. investigators say they discovered the latest victim will clearing the clock crime scenes. >> as a last night, we were able to take all of the victims from both of those scenes and in doing so, we have located a further victim. >> reporter: all mars father was the first to die. >> entering a place of prayer to shoot somebody is cowardly. >> reporter: abdul came face-to- with the white supremacists at the second moss . >> he got the gun out of his shark car and started shooting at me and i had to duck between
