We knew this was coming.
On Thursday, the Senate voted to condemn President Trump’s national emergency declaration on the southern border. 12 Republicans sided with Democrats– Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Rand Paul, Mitt Romney, Mike Lee, Lamar Alexander, Jerry Moran, Pat Toomey, Rob Portman, Roger Wicker, Roy Blunt, and Marco Rubio.
After the vote, Trump issued a warning:
“It is a tremendous national emergency,” he said. “Our immigration system is stretched beyond the breaking point.”
He’s not giving up. Not yet. This battle is well worth the fight.
