President Donald Trump is likely to sign a veto of the congressional measure to end his emergency declaration to get funds to build a border wall around 3:00 p.m. on Friday, according to sources familiar with the matter.
Flanked by law enforcement officials as well as the parents of children killed by people in the country illegally, Trump maintained that he is not through fighting for his signature campaign promise, which stands largely unfulfilled 18 months before voters decide whether to grant him another term.
Trump called the resolution reckless and said he was proud to veto it.

"I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country", Trump tweeted.
Indeed, Trump had telegraphed his plan to proceed with additional wall spending on Thursday, minutes after the Senate voted 59-41 to block it.
Alexander added that he shares the president's goal of border security, but warned allowing Trump to redirect money without authorization could set a risky precedent.
Trump made the construction of a wall along the nearly 2,000-mile-long US-Mexico border a cornerstone of his 2016 presidential campaign, saying Mexico would pay for it.
The border wall project still faces a variety of legal challenges, and despite Trump's veto, House and Senate votes against the emergency declaration could carry some weight in the courts.
"The president acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border", the Justice Department argues in the letter, a copy of which was reviewed by The Washington Post.
"I think the basic premise of Mike [Lee's] bill is correct", Republican Senator Jerry Moran said Thursday. Ahead of the voting, Trump framed the issue as with-him-or-against-him on border security, a powerful argument with many.
On Friday, Barr also said the president's emergency order was "clearly authorized under the law".
He also noted that despite record numbers of apprehensions at the border, there was not enough space to detain them all.
Had Trump not taken action in a timely manner, the decisive votes would have overturned all the effort he put into securing funding for the Wall's construction.
