Enough turncoat Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues the other day in voting to block President Trump’s border emergency declaration. While President Trump probably had two choice words for those who voted against him, he replied simply with one – tweeting “VETO” after the vote. This will be the first veto of his presidency.
The White House said Trump likely would issue the veto on March 15.
According to Fox News, the measure passed 59-41 as a dozen Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the resolution, despite White House efforts to keep the GOP united on the issue of border security. Those GOP members who backed the resolution cited concerns about the expansion of presidential powers.
Not surprisingly one of those Republican’s was Mitt Romney. “I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters ahead of the vote. “This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution.”
“This is not about the president or border security, in fact, I support border security, I support a barrier,” he said.
Other Republicans Who Parted With Trump on Border Security
In the run-up to the vote, the Trump administration was urging the GOP not to vote against the president. Speaking on “Fox and Friends” Vice President Mike Pence said, “A vote against the president’s national emergency declaration is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that’s happening at our southern border. So we’re urging every member of the Senate set politics aside to recognize that we have a crisis.”
However, given the results of the vote, clearly there were those who did not get the message. You could add these names to the growing list of RINOs who do not support the president, and remember them when it comes time for primary challenges. The other Republicans who voted to oppose the declaration were Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; Rand Paul, R-Ky.; Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Roger Wicker, R-Miss.; Roy Blunt, R-Mo.; Jerry Moran, R-Kan.; and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.
Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., had said he would oppose the declaration but reversed course on the Senate floor, saying that he was “sympathetic” to Trump’s push to deal with the crisis at the border.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., before the vote, said he “takes his hat off” to Republicans voting with Democrats, while accusing Trump of “going around Congress” with the declaration.
“This is a momentous day,” he said, declaring that the balance of power was shifting back toward Congress.
It is all pointless political theater in any case, as the measure heads next to Trump’s desk, having previously passed the House. However, Trump plans to veto, and it’s unlikely the House and Senate could muster the required two-thirds majority to override his first use of his veto powers.

I think the 12 turncoat Republicans should think long and hard because these illegals are bringing in groups of people who are sick and bringing illnesses which at one time were under control and now are reappearing in America. I know this is a crisis and when the chips were down you twelve Republicans failed the America and its citizens. These twelve Republicans will not be forgotten come re-election time.
I AM APPALLED AT THE REPUB WHO VOTED DOWN THE BUILDING OF THE WALL. NONE OF YOU CARE ABOUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR VOTES AND MONEY. YOU HAVE WALLS AROUND YOUR HOMES WITH SECURITY. THE ANTI AM. DEMONRATS HAVE GONE SO FAR DOWN THE TUBES. I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR A DEM AGAIN.(I WAS DEM FOR 20 YEARS) GOD BLESS PRES TRUMP.

12 traitors to the safety and security of American citizens. Turn coat, more like blue coat. “The blue coats are coming, the bluecoats are Coming.” Different color but the same 230 year old problem of tyrannical government. This has absolutely nothing to do with balance of power and everything to do with the protection of our borders and the safety and security of US citizens. Every politician when elected into office Swears an oath to uphold the constitution to protect the rights and safety of the American public both foreign and domestic. This is a blatant disregard of that oath and to the constituents who elected those representatives into their trust. Illegal aliens are not citizens and are not entitled to protection by the constitution. Senator Tom Tillis R-NC should be sympathetic to the angel families who lost loved ones murdered by illegal aliens rather than to presTrump who is trying to secure our borders. Chuck Schumer, leave your hat on …Donald, VETO this!
This vote had absolutely nothing to do with balance of power. There has not been a balance of power since President Trump was elected into office two years ago. Furthermore, Republicans lost any balance of power that might have existed when the House was lost during the midterm Elections. Democrats have remained united regardless of how ludicrous the nature of the issue might be. Note that not one single Democrat flipped their vote In favor of recognizing this to be a serious national problem. Even Republican Senator Tom Tillis of North Carolina changed his vote against this resolution after stating that he was sympathetic to president Trump’s challenge to deal with the “crisis at the border“. Another cowardly decision to crumble under the pressure of the Democratic Party’s Agenda. Another very important observation to note is that not a single opposing Republican representative who voted against this resolution represented one of the southern border states. Hmm, why not? It’s not their problem, right? I’m curious to know how many representatives of both parties with opposing votes have actually visited the border, talked to border security agents, or most importantly, met or spoke to an “Angel Family” victim’s family member. I’ll wager the answer is ZIP, ZERO, NOTTA, NONE.
Correction: Democratic Senator Thom Tillis of NC.
Why bother commenting. I submitted a couple well stated and thought out remarks on Monday 3/18 which were never posted. If you don’t want my opinions then don’t ask for them. Don’t waste my time and energy.
