13 House Republicans who bucked Trump on emergency declaration

Thirteen House Republicans bucked their party on Tuesday to vote for a measure that would overturn President Trump’s declaration of an emergency at the southern border.

The resolution passed the Democratic-controlled House in a vote of 245-182, with all Democrats voting to send it to the Senate. The GOP-led Senate is expected to vote on the measure in the coming weeks.{mosads}

House GOP leaders worked to limit defections heading into Tuesday’s vote. The measure was widely expected to pass but fall short of the number of votes needed to overturn a veto that Trump has promised should the resolution pass both chambers.

Several Republicans have voiced concerns about Trump’s Feb. 15 declaration of a national emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, arguing the president is abusing his powers by attempting to reallocate funds for his long-desired border wall. 

Here are the 13 Republicans who voted for the measure to block Trump’s declaration:

Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.)

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.)

Rep. Mike Gallagher (Wis.)

Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.)

Rep. Will Hurd (Texas) 

Rep. Dusty Johnson (S.D.)

Rep. Thomas Massie (Ky.)

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (Wash.)

Rep. Francis Rooney (Fla.)

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (Wis.)

Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.)

Rep. Fred Upton (Mich.) 

Rep. Greg Walden (Ore.)
