The Senate voted 59-41 to block President Donald Trump’s border-emergency declaration.

A dozen Republicans joined all 47 Democrats to pass a resolution of disapproval of the declaration. The 12 GOP senators were:

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

On Feb. 15, following a protracted spending battle that led to a record-long partial government shutdown, Trump declared a national emergency on the southern border. His move came after he signed a compromise spending bill to keep the government open for the remainder of the fiscal year.

The spending measure included only $1.375 billion for 55 miles of border fence in a limited region. The president had been seeking $5.7 billion. The fight over border wall funding was the sticking point that led to the government shutdown.

Trump’s emergency declaration would allow the president to redirect billions of dollars from other areas to fund the border wall. Most of the redirected funds would come from the Department of Defense.

In response to Trump’s emergency declaration, the Democratic-controlled House passed last month a resolution to block the president’s move. Thirteen Republicans joined the entire Democratic caucus to approve the measure, 245-182.

Republican backers of the resolution have repeatedly stated that their opposition to Trump’s emergency declaration is not based on opposition to building the border wall but on the president’s plan to spend money that Congress did not allocate. Article 1 of the Constitution gives Congress sole power of purse.

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio warned:

We have a crisis at our southern border, but no crisis justifies violating the Constitution. Today’s national emergency is border security. But a future president may use this exact same tactic to impose the Green New Deal. I will wait to see what statutory or constitutional power the President relies on to justify such a declaration before making any definitive statement. But I am skeptical it will be something I can support.

The National Emergencies Act, which allows Congress to stop a presidential emergency declaration, requires that, after House passage, the Senate must bring up the House-passed resolution of disapproval. The resolution is privileged and, therefore, cannot be filibustered.

With 47 Democrats in the Senate, the minority party needed only four Republicans to join them to pass the resolution. On March 4, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul announced he would be the fourth Republican vote — joining Sens. Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Thom Tillis.

Tillis declared shortly before the vote Thursday that he had changed his mind and would vote against the resolution. His flip-flop came following reports of pressure from the White House.

The number of GOP senators who jumped ship and joined the Democrats grew after President Trump shot down a proposal led by Utah Sen. Mike Lee — and backed by 14 other Republicans — to rein in presidential power to declare emergencies.

Lee’s bill would have had no impact on Trump’s border emergency declaration. The bill would have amended the National Emergencies Act to give Congress 30 days to extend a presidential emergency declaration. If Congress chose not to extend it, the declaration would automatically end.

Lee said he offered the bill as a deal to President Trump in exchange for support for his emergency declaration. The Utah senator revealed Wednesday that “the president didn’t appear interested,” so he would be voting in favor of the disapproval resolution.

Sen. Mitt Romney joined his fellow Utah Republican Thursday, declaring that he would also vote to block Trump’s emergency declaration. He said in a news release:

I will vote today for the resolution of disapproval. This is a vote for the Constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core. For the Executive Branch to override a law passed by Congress would make it the ultimate power rather than a balancing power.

This is not a vote against border security. In fact, I agree that a physical barrier is urgently needed to help ease the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, and the administration already has $4.5 billion available within existing authority to fund a barrier – even without an emergency declaration.

I am seriously concerned that overreach by the Executive Branch is an invitation to further expansion and abuse by future presidents. We experienced a similar erosion of congressional authority with President Obama’s unilateral immigration orders – which I strenuously opposed. In the case before us now, where Congress has enacted specific policy, to consent to an emergency declaration would be both inconsistent with my beliefs and contrary to my oath to defend the Constitution.

President Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to both again defend his emergency declaration and to state that he is open to future changes to the National Emergencies Act.

“Prominent legal scholars agree that our actions to address the National Emergency at the Southern Border and to protect the American people are both CONSTITUTIONAL and EXPRESSLY authorized by Congress,” Trump tweeted. “If, at a later date, Congress wants to update the law, I will support those efforts, but today’s issue is BORDER SECURITY and Crime!!! Don’t vote with Pelosi!”

Also on Thursday morning, hours before the Senate vote, Trump blasted any Republicans who would choose to support the disapproval resolution, saying, “A vote for today’s resolution by Republican Senators is a vote for Nancy Pelosi, Crime, and the Open Border Democrats!”

The resolution now heads to the president’s desk. Trump has made it clear that he will veto the resolution.

He reiterated his intention to veto the resolution in a statement Thursday on Twitter: “A big National Emergency vote today by The United States Senate on Border Security & the Wall (which is already under major construction). I am prepared to veto, if necessary. The Southern Border is a National Security and Humanitarian Nightmare, but it can be easily fixed!”

Congress has the option to vote to override the veto, but that move requires a two-thirds majority in both houses. The resolution did not receive support from two-thirds of the members in either chamber.

Next up, the emergency declaration faces multiple court challenges from opposition groups and at least 16 states, with California leading the charge.

The White House has repeatedly stated that it will defend the emergency declaration.

      And yet when Democrats don’t go with party line. They are traitors in the eyes of the Democrats. Well hear is some news for you liberals. We the people voted everyone of you into office to work for the people not some bullshit party line. and anyone who votes against the people need to be fired no matter what the hell their party line is. We voted for this damn wall and if Congress wants to go against what the people want they should be fired Or is that impeached and bot parties need to be closed down. Actually they should be charged with treason and shot and I don’t give a damn what party they belong to.

        Re: “We voted for the damn wall…”

        Answer: Actually, you voted for a wall that Trump promised Mexico would pay for. (Mexico hasn’t paid a penny.) Polls show that the vast majority of Americans do not want a wall from coast to coast.

          Missed the little fact that replacing the trade agreements between US, Mexico and Canada did, benefited the US way more than the wall is costing. Trumps’ haters still struggling to find a single thing he’s promised (and mostly even SAID) that hasn’t been born out in reality. Quite an accomplishment.

            Re: “…trade agreements benefited…way more…”

            (1) Trump did not say that trade agreements would pay for the wall. He said that MEXICO would pay for it, and by the way, neither Mexico nor Canada pay anything in those trade agreements. The US consumer pays for them in the form of higher prices. Tariffs, BTW, are taxes.

          • Michael

            March 15, 2019 at 12:41 am

            And he also specifically said that he didn’t mean Mexico was going to just write us a check, but there were other ways to make them pay. Hello new trade agreement, the one that will save our country billions of dollars every year. That means instead of shelling out those extra billions to Mexico every year, our country is now going to be saving that money and it is therefore available to fund the wall. Translation: Mexico IS paying for the wall with the money they’re no longer getting from us under the terms of the new trade agreement. Get it? This fits perfectly with what Trump said.

          March 14, 2019 at 7:24 pm

          A. No one is asking for a wall coast to coast… as a matter of fact, you need to look up Obama’s Border Patrol Chief and see what his thoughts were. No one has EVER suggested a coast to coast wall. B. If you thought that Trump meant that Mexico would write one big check on the wall…you are naive…at best. Mexico will ultimately pay for this wall through other means… taxes, tariffs, etc. Here is an excerpt from one of Trump’s campaign documents

          “Mexico must pay for the wall and, until they do, the United States will, among other things: impound all remittance payments derived from illegal wages; increase fees on all temporary visas issued to Mexican CEOs and diplomats (and if necessary cancel them); increase fees on all border crossing cards – of which we issue about 1 million to Mexican nationals each year (a major source of visa overstays); increase fees on all NAFTA worker visas from Mexico (another major source of overstays); and increase fees at ports of entry to the United States from Mexico (Tariffs and foreign aid cuts are also options). We will not be taken advantage of anymore.”

          Once again, you grab a fake news headline and think you have facts. What he meant by Mexico will pay for the wall is the new trade deal, USMCA, would make trade fairer, cut OUR tariffs and generate more money. All true. You didn’t actually think he meant Mexico would be writing a check, did you? HAHAHA

          • SMRSTRAUSS

            March 15, 2019 at 5:11 pm

            Re: “What he meant was Mexico will pay for the wall is the new trade deal.”

            Answer: That is not what he said, and by the way, a trade deal does not pay for the wall. The tariffs raised are paid for by US consumers.

          March 15, 2019 at 11:17 am

          And I don’t know what fake news told you the “vast majority” of Americans don’t want a wall. Obviously, we do. We voted for it. We are still supporting it and we want it. Fake news gives you fake polls. wake up. Really, check out Prager U, or some other fairer or at least “the other side” news outlet once in awhile. You need to educate yourself.

            Re: “we voted for it.” Actually, you voted AGAINST Hillary Clinton. The vast majority of Americans do not want the wall—as polls show—and the majority of both houses of the US Congress has now voted AGAINST (1) Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion for the border wall; (2) Trump’s unconstitutional executive order taking money from other appropriations in order to fund the border wall. (Only the US Congress can appropriate money. The US Constitution makes that quite clear.)

    • smrstrauss

      March 15, 2019 at 12:16 pm

      The US Constitution clearly specifies that only THE CONGRESS can authorize an expenditure of money. So Trump’s emergency order to get around a decision of the US Congress is unconstitutional. And 12 Republicans recognized that fact. (So will the courts.)

    • Donald Brown

      March 16, 2019 at 12:13 am

      You obviously are confused. Every Democrat voted along party lines and against the health and welfare of the US citizens. The fact that 12 republican senators voted with the democrats, simply demonstrates there are still rhino republicans and delusional republicans that think future democrat presidents may also utilize the law passed by congress to declare a national emergency, which they certainly will. there are no winners in this vote. The US Supreme Court will decide this issue.

    March 14, 2019 at 5:01 pm

    It’s the same old names and faces of the spineless Republicans who oppose Trump on almost everything he tries to do.
    Why voters would continue to elect and re-elect any elected official who refuses to protect American citizens and our borders is beyond my way of thinking. These are the SAME politicians who swore a sacred oath to protect our nation when they took the oath of office. They lied, they admit it and they STILL get re-elected! You can’t fight ignorance like this.
    Any nation that imports it’s own killers has a serious and potential deadly problem.

      The reason is because all politics are local. When there is a push for us to throw the bums out everyone’s for it except for their guy(or gal)csuse they’re one of the good ones. U fortunately that isn’t the case. My father, god rest his soul was politically connected because of his volanteer work. He work with the rep in Congress Ike Skeleton. Together with those from the state legislature they pushed for some much need privacy protections for Veterans paperwork. They got it passed and my father raise him for pushing to vet it done and everything else he did for veterans. On the other hand he actively campaigned against his reelection and was vocal in his opposition. When I asked him why what he said was talling. He said “Son, I applaud him for working for veterans and Veterans issues and support him wholeheartedly in those thing. The problem is that a majority of what he stands for and votes for is opposed to what I spent 20 yrs in the military fighting for. I’m not a one issue voter because if I was I would vote to reelect him everytime. Unfortunately, that one issue isn’t as important as the country as a whole and the constitution that I defended and the country I served. He’s not serving the country as I see it but the party and that shouldn’t even enter into the equation.” So the problem really is people who believe one issue is more important than the country.

How many sick illegals now we are taking care of? It will cost 10 times more than the wall but oh I forgot the House voted to allow illegals to vote for them so they can dictate to the world, destroy Jewish and Christian people so they can dictate to us just like Syria, Iran and Palestine. YOU NOTICE NOT ONE DEMOCRAT VOTED AGAINST IT. WAY TO GO McConnell. Reid would never had allowed it to go to a vote if he didn’t have all the Democrats for it and you never allowed a vote to go for the border so why did you vote this? We the people need somehow to cut salaries and get rid of all of Congress and start over!!! The Republicans think they can propose something else and the Democrats would vote for it?

    well we need to take down the names of the 12 traitors that turned on their leader to apease the Demonrats.
    I know that they are not traitors by definition. These 12 that voted no to the national emergency. Well this is just me saying how I feel..I feel these 12 are NOT conservatives at all. they are nothing more then the DemonRats puppets. They get voted in for their views, at least what they lead us to believe is their views….only to turn and slap our country in the face when we needed them most. I am going to make sure that not one of them will be voted for by me. So disappointing that OUR OWN PARTY won’t stand together united..

    There absolutely has to be something crooked about allowing the illegals to cross the border and the “elected officials” who are supposed to be PROTECTING U.S. is hiding. As far as pat toomey is concerned, HE IS A SNAKE and nothing more. Those idiots that voted against the party lines should be removed from office and replaced by snail dung as that would be better. WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.

    Keep a list. Vote them out! I don’t care if you don’t like our President or not, common sense and physical evidence tells you there’s a problem. These people turned a blind eye to the situation and rather than supporting the citizens of the United States which they were elected to do, they are supporting illegals while U.S. citizens get nothing. Republicans need to support the President or risk losing to the socialist democrats and by then it’s too late. I hope I don’t live long enough to see this free United States turn into a Venezuela.

      Good idea. Vote them out. Vote for Democrats instead of them. By the way, they are RIGHT. The US Constitution gives the power to appropriate money only to the Congress. Only the Congress can appropriate money for any purpose, not a president who claims that there is an emergency.
