Default 6 RHINOS oppose securing borders

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Thursday that he will oppose President Trump's emergency declaration to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

"I will today vote for the resolution of disapproval. This is a vote for the constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core," Romney said in a statement.

Romney is the sixth Republican senator to say he will vote for the resolution of disapproval, which is getting a vote in the Senate later Thursday.

In addition to Romney, Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) had already announced they would support the resolution. Shortly after Romney made his announcement, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) became the seventh Republican to say they will vote to block Trump's resolution.

The Constitution says:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.
Invasion definition:

1783 dictionary:
descent upon a country, an usurpation, or encroachment.
https://books.google.com/books?id=Mo...hment.&f=false

1785 dictionary:
Hostile entrance upon the rights or possessions of another, hostile encroachments.

perhaps CONGRESS should not have ceded that power to the EXECUTIVE years ago. Where was Mitt's poutrage when 44 declared his emergencies for other nations?

Romney and Lee are both losers but they are members of the local church so they will win. That is why Hatch was in Congress for 40+ years as well as the person he replaced.

Where's that State Flower/snowflake of Utah photo again?

Did anyone think that Romeny would vote with the intended goal of protecting the borders? Not for a second... anything to thwart Trump and THE people.

I honest-to-God don't get why anybody is against this - especially Schumer and Pelosi who were FOR it not that long ago...
I think its just a hate for anything Trump might get credit for..

In fairness Obama's declared emergencies were not even remotely the same as this border declaration. Imposing sanctions against bad actors in shitholes around the world is not exactly the same thing as diverting approved funding to unapproved projects. If he were instead using the emergency declaration to impose sanctions against Mexico & other CA countries for facilitating illegal immigration (which probably isn't a bad idea), then that would be similar to what Obama declared.

Anyway you slice it, and whether you are for it or against it, the border declaration is an end run around Congress as written. The thread title suggesting those 6-7 Republicans are against securing the border, because they recognize the move for what it is, is kind of silly and disingenuous.

People need to remember the elected officials who thinks illegals and criminals are more important than their fellow countrymen. I don't give a **** how they try and justify their position, especially considering they are fully aware the leftist want open borders. I am so sick of spineless RINO's I can't see straight. These worthless ***** just need to come out of the closet and admit what they really are.

Nothing's really changed. They won't be able to override POTUS veto so he marches on
