Upton is currently an establishment GOP obstructionist who has a moderate social record and flip-flopped over his career politician years as a representative.
Having a serious condition of Romnesia, Upton firmly supported border security measures before he opposed them, such as opposing Trump's border wall. Upton even went as far as to join 33 other establishment GOP representatives calling for maintaining DACA amnesty before the end of 2017.
In 2013, Upton voted to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. Among other non-conservative positions, Upton co-sponsored the lightbulb ban bill as well as voted against President Donald Trump’s border wall.
