Any republican who does not vote against the declaration of emergency is a hypocrite. We will see how it comes out.

It is always nice to agree with a principled conservative, they are so rare.
thats a joke son
In this case Donald Trump said he did not have to declare this emergency. That one sentence undermined any reason to consider this necessary.

Could today’s vote signal a shift in the political winds?
It's time that the GOP found its backbone and did what's right for AMERICA, not the party and definitively not for @realDonaldTrump .
