For his part, President Donald jumped to his Twitter feed to slam the Senate for its decision.
I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country. I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!

For some of these Senators, this may be a strategic vote so they can show voters back home that they can “stand up” to the president even as they know the vote won’t really stop Trump’s emergency declaration.
But what they have really shown is that they all agree with the Democrats that the U.S should not have any national sovereignty and no border integrity.
This vote is a strike against the United States of America. Nothing less.
