A dozen Republicans had joined Senate Democrats in approving the joint resolution on Thursday, but together they did not reach the two-thirds majority that would be required to override Trump's veto.
While Congress is unlikely to muster the votes to override the veto, the rebuke from some members of his own party left Trump politically wounded, at least temporarily, as immigration and his planned wall along the USA southern border become a flashpoint again in the 2020 presidential campaign.
It is the first time in his two years in office that Trump has used his presidential veto power to block legislation and comes after a dozen Senate Republicans joined Democrats to rebuke Trump's use of his national emergency power to bypass Congress and fund construction of a border wall.
Earlier today, President Trump thanked Republicans who voted against the measure.
The White House sought to pare back Republican defections leading up to the vote, with the President and White House aides making clear to Republican senators that a vote against Trump on this issue would have ramifications come re-election time.
And Friday afternoon Trump again thanked those GOP senators who had voted to allow his emergency declaration to go forward.
She also says the president "is incredibly disappointed" with Republicans who voted against him.
"We had a war against a king in the American revolution", said Sen. This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Country.
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 has said he wants a wall to prevent immigrants from crossing into the United States illegally.
The President was flanked by DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Attorney General William Barr and number of other law enforcement officials.
