The Senate passed a resolution Thursday to overturn President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, with 12 Republicans joining all Democrats to deliver a bipartisan rebuke to the president.

The disapproval resolution passed the House last month, so the 59-41 Senate vote will send the measure to the Trump’s desk. Trump has promised to use the first veto of his presidency to strike it down, and Congress does not have the votes to override the veto.

So now it's to a veto and there probably won't be enough votes to overturn, but the message has been made loud and clear.


I doubt it is coincidence that the Republican Senators are abandoning ship just before the Mueller investigation releases its report.
