Meet the 13 Republicans who rebuked Trump over his national emergency

Thirteen Republicans rebuked President Donald Trump on Tuesday, supporting a Democratic effort to block his national emergency declaration to fund a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.

A resolution of disapproval to overturn Trump’s move passed the House by a vote of 245-182, with almost every Democrat and 13 Republicans supporting the measure. Trump declared a national emergency earlier this month when Congress failed to meet his request of $8 billion for a barrier along the southern border. Lawmakers allocated nearly $1.4 billion for 55 miles of barriers in a recent government funding bill.

Five lawmakers did not vote, including two Republicans: New York’s John Katko, who is one of three GOP members in districts that Hillary Clinton won in 2016 and Missouri’s Ann Wagner. Others not voting were Democrats Lois Frankel of Florida, Steve Cohen of Tennessee and Peter A. DeFazio of Oregon.
