In a press conference Monday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reiterated his opposition for President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration saying that there is a crisis on the border.
More, however, Paul said that he knows of at least 10 fellow Republicans who are unwilling to support the president’s efforts. Thus far, four Republican Senators have said that they will not support Trump’s efforts, but it was previously unknown that there were as many as ten.
Democrats have already passed the bill in the House, and it is slated to be voted on in the Senate this week. Trump will likely veto the bill and it’s unclear if the Senate would be willing to hold a vote to override the veto.
