Credit to the brave 12 GOP Senators — AND the 13 House Republicans who stood up for the Constitution. Rubio, I think, deserves special praise. He has had great influence w/ Trump on some important issues. He could have easily used that to justify voting 'no' on this resolution.

So without a competent staff – No Kris Kobach, No Mickey Kaus, No John Miano… the admin didn't push for immigration reform, for a wall, to even whip the votes for Congress to support the emergency declaration.

The GOP holds the Senate but can’t even whip the votes to support Drumpf on building the wall with their recently expanded Senate majority:
“The Senate voted Thursday to block President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration over the southern border, a sharp bipartisan rebuke of the president’s flex of executive power.
The chamber comfortably passed the measure in a 59-41 vote. Twelve Republicans who worried about executive overreach supported it in an embarrassing blow to the president.
Trump plans to reject the bill, which the Democratic-held House has already passed. In a tweet after the vote, he simply said: “VETO!” …”
Blompf is promising to veto.

It doesn’t really matter.
We all know that True Conservatives will never secure the border, end all the endless foreign wars, unprecedented trade deficits, Globohomo, a suicide and drug overdose epidemic in White America, abortion, social media censorship or political correctness. The GOP has done nothing but milk Trump’s populist supporters for two years to advance their own agenda.
