Twelve Senate Republicans from different corners of the party banded together Thursday to deliver President Trump the biggest rebuke of his presidency, voting to disapprove of his emergency declaration for the Southern border.

The Republican rebels joined every single Senate Democrat in the chamber, who also voted to block Trump’s emergency declaration, which grants him access to $3.6 billion in military construction funding to build border barriers.

The article goes on to state the following:

In the end, the vote boiled down to an effort by GOP lawmakers to preserve their power of the purse, even though they agree with Trump’s desire to secure the border to halt the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants.

The 12 Republican senators who voted against Trump’s National Emergency Declaration are:

  • Susan Collins (Maine)
  • Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
  • Rand Paul (Ky.)
  • Mike Lee (Utah)
  • Rob Portman (Ohio)
  • Pat Toomey (Pa.)
  • Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)
  • Roy Blunt (Mo.)
  • Mitt Romney (Utah)
  • Marco Rubio (Fla.)
  • Jerry Moran (Kan.)
  • Roger Wicker (Miss.)

    Think because they have a R in the corner that they are the good guys?
    Choose the individual not the party.
    The deep state is real and they own both sides.
    We need more outside the establishment.

    We will all be required to learn Spanish and Succumb to sharia law. It’s just a matter of time. Or scumbag political arena screwed us royally. Our hard-working tax dollars will be Increased to help these refugees and illegal aliens getting free access to everything we work so hard for. So are you Democrats and traders thanks for destroying our country


  15. Michelle March 14th, 2019 at 6:26 pm

    Any Republican that voted against protecting the American people from Illegal Aliens killing Americans, bringing in diseases, smuggling drugs, raping women and little girls especially at the border should recuse themselves from the Republican party. You are part of the problem.


  16. Patti March 14th, 2019 at 6:46 pm

  17. Betty kelly March 14th, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    Will be doing what ever I can to see that they do not get re-elected. So, So disappointed in those traders.


  18. Richard March 14th, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    1. All 12 should be put on notice to not bother to run for re-election, their names will be remembered.
    2. They need to have their finances investigated to find any unusual contributions.
    3. The vote shows the country who does not care about the citizens, Democrats and these 12 RINO’s. They will have the blood of every victim of an illegal committed crime on their hands.


  19. Mary March 14th, 2019 at 9:38 pm

    Seems funny that most of these states are not border states. They need to be ashamed to not care about these Invaders.


    • Donna March 15th, 2019 at 12:02 am

  20. Carol March 15th, 2019 at 12:01 pm
