PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota Rep. Dusty Johnson is among 13 House Republicans who supported a Democratic effort to block President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to fund a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The House’s vote of 245-182 Tuesday fell well below the two-thirds majority that would be needed to override what would be the first veto of Trump’s presidency.

The freshman Republican is the at-large member for South Dakota, a state that Trump carried by nearly 30 points in 2016. Johnson says he supports the president on border security and the wall, but feels an emergency declaration is the wrong approach to funding it.

The issue is now before the Republican-run Senate.
