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)

  • Pat Toomey (Pa.)
