Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), who is up for reelection in 2020 and is coming under pressure from conservative critics in North Carolina, has changed his mind on voting for a resolution disapproving of President Trump’s emergency border declaration.

Tillis announced in a Feb. 25 Washington Post op-ed he would support a disapproval resolution but changed his mind Thursday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I will be voting against the resolution of disapproval,” he said on the Senate floor, pointing to what he called a “crisis at the border.”

“We have to recognize that we have a crisis at the border, 76,000 people crossing illegally in February alone. We have narcotics flooding our country, poisoning our children and adults of all ages,” he said.

It was a reversal from the position he stated in late February when he wrote “Republicans need to realize that this will lead inevitably to regret when a Democrat once again controls the White House, cites the precedent set by Trump, and declares his or her own national emergency to advance a policy that couldn’t gain congressional approval.”

    he fact that he only changed his vote to save his neck in 2020 I would not trust to ever vote for him!!!! He did not do it for Trump or to protect the people via wall, but to save his neck…vote him out!!!!!
