The 8 House Republicans who voted against Trump’s border wall

The House on Thursday passed a stopgap government funding bill by a 217-185 vote that would stave off a partial government shutdown.

Its inclusion of $5.7 billion in border wall funding, however, likely makes it dead on arrival in the Senate, leaving both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue without a backup plan as President TrumpDonald TrumpDemocrats, activists blast reported Trump DOJ effort to get journalists' phone records Arizona secretary of state gets security detail over death threats surrounding election audit Trump admin got phone records of WaPo reporters covering Russia probe: report MORE digs his heels in on his demands for wall funding.

“This massive, wasteful spending bill—stuffed with unrelated items—passed 217-185. It’s amazing how some wall funding causes my fellow Republicans to embrace big government. Watch out if Democrats attach wall funding to Medicare for All. The bill could be called Medicare for Wall,” he said about the stopgap bill.

He told Colorado Public Radio this month, however, that a border wall shouldn’t be the cause for a government shutdown.

“I think sending federal workers home before Christmas without knowing when and if they’ll have a job is wrong,” he said.

"Americans want border security. It is clear the Senate Democrats are acting irresponsibly. I hope they are shamed into a very, very small price to pay for the wall and to really enhance border security and get this country moving forward on a very important issue.”

Curbelo, who lost a reelection bid in November, has been a frequent Trump critic, particularly over the White House’s demands on immigration. He helped introduced a bill earlier this year that tied border wall funding in exchange for a path to citizenship for two million young undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children, commonly referred to as "Dreamers."

“I think there’s no plan here, there’s no end in sight to the current crisis yet again,” Curbelo said about the shutdown Thursday on MSNBC.

Hurd, a House moderate who won reelection in November by less than 1 point, has pushed for a “smart border wall” that uses “cutting edge” technology to protect the border rather than a physical wall.

“The American people sent us up here to get things done, and the only way we can get things done is by working together,” he tweeted Thursday.

Upton has said that a border wall may be appropriate in some areas of the border, but that different security measures “may be sufficient” in other areas. He’s advocated for legislation that ties “border security” to ending family separations at the border and giving “long-term stability” to Dreamers.
