Thirteen Republican Senators Are Demanding President Trump Halt Immigration Enforcement At The United States-mexico Border Until They Can Pass Legislation Closing A Legal Loophole, Perhaps Leaving The Border Open For Years.

  • Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT)
  • Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)
  • Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS)
  • Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME)
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK)
  • Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN)
  • Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN)
  • Sen. John Boozman (R-AR)
  • Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV)
  • Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO)
  • Sen. James Lankford (R-OK)
  • Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA)
  • Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH)
