Murkowski to Vote for Resolution Blocking Trump’s Emergency Declaration
By The Hill. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Tuesday that she will support a resolution blocking President Trump’s emergency declaration to construct the U.S.-Mexico border wall. . .
The House is expected to pass a resolution of disapproval to block the national emergency declaration later Tuesday, kicking the vote to the Senate.
Democrats will need four Republicans to vote with them to pass the resolution through the Senate, where they need only a simple majority.
So far, three GOP senators are viewed as “yes” votes: Murkowski and Sens. Thom Tillis (N.C.) and Susan Collins (Maine).
Collins told reporters in Maine last week that she would support a clean resolution to block Trump’s emergency declaration. Tillis wrote in a Washington Post op-ed released on Monday night that he would also vote for the resolution.
