RINO ALERT: Susan Collins, Tom Udall Unveil Bill to End Trump’s National Emergency

Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Tom Udall (D-NM) unveiled the Senate version of a bill Thursday that would terminate President Donald Trump’s national emergency allowing him to build a wall along the southern border.
In unveiling the Senate version of the bill that the House passed, the Maine senator said Trump’s national emergency serves as an example of “executive overreach.”
“The question before us is not whether to support or oppose the wall. It is not whether to support or oppose President Trump,” Collins said on the Senate floor. “Rather, it is this: do we the executive branch, now or in the future, to [sic] hold the power that the founders deliberately entrusted to Congress?”
Collins also revealed that Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) sponsored the bill. Along with Murkowski and Collins, Sen. Tom Tillis (R-NC) signaled he would vote for the resolution to end the national emergency. This would suggest that only one Republican needs to defect in the Senate to pass the resolution should every Democrat vote for the bill.
