Republicans in the Senate Suddenly Take Strong Stand on the Border and Illegal Immigration in Exchange for Funding Ukraine

Days after new Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) again put the Biden administration and the Senate on notice that he would only consider funding for Ukraine if strict border and immigration reforms in H.R 2 were enacted, Republicans in the Senate have suddenly taken a hardline stand on the border and immigration in negotiations with Democrats on funding for Ukraine to defend itself from the ongoing Russian invasion.

Senate Republicans have been negotiating with Democrats for weeks on border and immigration reforms and have reached an impasse. Joe Biden asked Congress in October to pass a $106 billion spending bill with the bulk of the money going to support the war efforts of Ukraine and Israel. The House passed a separate funding bill in early November to support Israel tied to cuts in IRS funding that Biden and the Democrats have rejected.
