Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Tuesday that she will support a resolution blocking President Trump’s emergency declaration to construct the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
Asked if she was supporting the resolution, Murkowski said that she is.
The House is expected to pass a resolution of disapproval to block the national emergency declaration later Tuesday, kicking the vote to the Senate.
Democrats will need four Republicans to vote with them to pass the resolution through the Senate, where they need only a simple majority.
So far, three GOP senators are viewed as “yes” votes: Murkowski and Sens. Thom Tillis (N.C.) and Susan Collins (Maine).
