The Senate has voted again to terminate Trump’s National Emergency declaration earlier this year and block his reallocation of funds toward building the border wall:
The Senate has voted 54-41 to terminate President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency for the border. Blocks diversion of funds for wall

That’s clearly not enough votes to overcome a Trump veto, just like before. Earlier this year they voted 59-41.
Here are the Republicans who sided with Democrats in this second disapproval vote against Trump’s National Emergency:
- Alexander (R-TN)
- Blunt (R-MO)
- Collins (R-ME)
- Lee (R-UT)
- Moran (R-KS)
- Murkowski (R-AK)
- Paul (R-KY)
- Portman (R-OH)
- Romney (R-UT)
- Toomey (R-PA)
- Wicker (R-MS)
It’s exactly the same Republicans who voted to terminate Trump’s national emergency in March of this year, with one exception: Marco Rubio. For whatever reason, he didn’t vote this time around.
Four other Democrats who are running for president didn’t vote either, probably because they knew it was a waste of their time.
