National emergency senate vote count: Here’s how senators voted

The Senate on Thursday voted to overturn President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency, a harsh rebuke of the president’s attempt to go around Congress to fund a border wall.

Twelve Republicans defected and joined all Democrats in approving the resolution, which now goes to the president’s desk. Trump has vowed to veto the resolution – the first of his presidency.

The TK senators voting “yes”, thereby blocking Trump’s emergency declaration, represent TK percent of voting age Americans, or TK million people.
