Here are those "yes" or "likely yes" votes, as reported by The Hill:

HOUSE

YES (2)

Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.)

The Michigan libertarian, a frequent Trump critic, accused the president of trying to “circumvent our constitutional system.”

“The same congressional Republicans who joined me in blasting Pres. Obama’s executive overreach now cry out for a king to usurp legislative powers. If your faithfulness to the Constitution depends on which party controls the White House, then you are not faithful to it,” Amash tweeted.

Rep. Thomas Massie (Ky.)

Massie emphasized that he supports Trump and the border wall but believes presidents shouldn't try to sidestep Congress. "In order to be consistent in preserving the constitutional structure of our Republic, I will be voting for the resolution to prevent the President from using a national emergency declaration to re-appropriate money for the wall," Massie wrote in a series of tweets on Tuesday.

LIKELY YES (1)

Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.)

“If President Obama had ever hinted at using emergency powers in this way, I would have spoken out strongly against it, and consistency demands that I do the same now," Herrera Beutler said in a statement criticizing Trump's declaration. She signaled openness to the Democratic resolution during an interview with The Daily Chronicle's editorial board on Thursday. 

“I’ve already said I oppose [the declaration],” she said. “If there’s a way for me to do that — when I get back [to Washington, D.C.], I’m gonna want to be seeing what tools are available.” 

UNDECIDED (8)

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (Fla.)

Diaz-Balart's office said that the Florida lawmaker "is still reviewing the resolution."

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.)

Fitzpatrick criticized the declaration, saying that “legislating must remain in the legislative branch.” His office didn't return a request for comment on Monday on how he would vote.

Rep. Mike Gallagher (Wis.)

“The problem is the president came to Congress asking for something, Congress said no. Our system doesn't then allow the president to say, 'Ok 'I'm just going do it anyway through some sort of cheat code,' " Gallagher said in an interview with Milwaukee's NBC affiliate. But Gallagher hasn't said how he will vote on the resolution. 

Rep. Will Hurd (Texas)

Hurd, a centrist, represents a longer stretch of the Mexican border than any other House member. He said Trump's emergency declaration "sets a terrible precedent” but hasn't said definitively if he'll support the resolution.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.)

Stefanik called the emergency declaration "the wrong decision" and predicted it would be "challenged in the courts."

Rep. Chris Stewart (Utah)

Stewart issued a blistering statement ahead of Trump's announcement of the emergency declaration, saying that "I think President Trump is making a mistake" that "sets a dangerous precedent and places America on a path that we will regret." When asked at a town hall last week if he would support the resolution to overturn it, Stewart replied: "I learned early: Don’t ever say you’re going to support a bill until you read it."

Rep. Mac Thornberry (Texas)

Thornberry, the top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, opposes using funds designated for military needs in the emergency declaration. The measure would use $3.6 billion dedicated to military construction. But Thornberry hasn't decided yet whether he'd support legislation to overturn Trump's national emergency declaration.

“I’ve got to sort through the two different issues and try to make sense of all that,” Thornberry said Thursday, according to the Wichita Falls Times Record News

Rep. Greg Walden (Ore.)

“I strongly object to any president acting outside of those explicit authorities to spend money that Congress has not appropriated for specific initiatives,” the former House GOP campaign chairman, who is a Democratic target in 2020, said in a statement after Trump announced the emergency declaration. His office didn't respond when asked Monday how he would vote on the Democratic resolution.

SENATE

YES (3)

Sen. Susan Collins (Maine)

Collins told reporters in Maine that "if it's a clean disapproval resolution, I will support it."

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)

"I will be voting 'yes' on the resolution of disapproval," Murkowski told reporters on Tuesday.

Sen. Thom Tillis (N.C.)

"I would vote in favor of the resolution disapproving of the president’s national-emergency declaration, if and when it comes before the Senate," Tillis wrote in an op-ed Monday in The Washington Post.

UNDECIDED (13)

Sen. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)

Alexander hasn't said how he will vote on a resolution, but criticized Trump's decision as "unnecessary, unwise and inconsistent with the U.S. Constitution." 

Sen. Cory Gardner (Colo.)

Gardner said in a statement to The Denver Post that he was reviewing Trump's actions but "Congress is most appropriately situated to fund border security." Gardner declined to comment further on Monday, saying he has said “all I’m going to say.”

Sen. Jim Inhofe (Okla.)

Inhofe, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told reporters that he has not made a decision on the resolution.

Sen. Johnny Isakson (Ga.)

Isakson told reporters on Tuesday that he had not made a decision about how he would vote.

Sen. James Lankford (Okla.)

Lankford said he has not made a decision, noting that senators haven’t yet seen details on where Trump will pull money from.

Sen. Mike Lee (Utah)

“Congress has been ceding far too much power to the executive branch for decades. We should use this moment as an opportunity to start taking that power back,” Lee said in a statement after Trump's announcement. 

Sen. Martha McSally (Ariz.)

McSally told reporters in Tucson, Ariz., that she was reviewing Trump's declaration and that her staff was talking to the White House. 

Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.)

Paul took a swing at Trump's decision in a statement, saying that "extraconstitutional executive actions are wrong, no matter which party does them." 

Sen. Rob Portman (Ohio)

Portman declined to say how he would vote while speaking at an event in Columbus, Ohio, but said of the wall that he "would prefer it not be done by emergency action.”

Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah)

Romney said in a statement that he wanted to evaluate Trump's declaration. He added that he didn't view a national emergency as "the right approach." 

Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.)

Rubio hasn't said how he would vote but said in a statement shortly before Trump's announcement that "no crisis justifies violating the Constitution" and he was "skeptical" he could support the president's actions. 

Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.)

Sasse told National Review that while there is a "crisis" at the border, "as a Constitutional conservative I don’t want a future Democratic President unilaterally rewriting gun laws or climate policy."

Sen. Pat Toomey (Pa.)

Toomey told the Tribune-Review that he was "concerned" by Trump's decision but wanted to review it.
