Senate Border/Ukraine Deal, ‘Dead On Arrival’

Senate Border/Ukraine Deal, ‘Dead On Arrival’ - Encounter Today - Blog

Republican and Democrat Senators have delivered a border security bill that the Speaker of the House has declared as being “dead on arrival” as it prioritizes foreign countries over America.

Not only does this bill codify 1.5 million illegal border crossings into law, but the “border emergency” that automatically gets implemented at 5,000 crossings per day in a week can be overturned by Joe Biden. And in case 1.5 million illegals isn’t enough, it also locks in green card giveaways through 2030.

This anti-America bill is being touted as being “bipartisan” but the time for such terminology is over. We are dealing with two heads of the same snake when it comes to the political establishment on the right and left.

Republican Senators Mitch McConnell and James Lankford joined with Democrats to send an additional $60 billion to the corrupt regime in Ukraine in exchange for hundreds of thousands to cross the southern border every single year whilst paying for their lawyers. Israel would receive $14 billion in military aid, $5 billion would go to America’s allies in the Asia-Pacific, and assist civilians in Gaza.

For all of the pro-America talk spoken by various Senators regarding the defense of the southern border, their words have seemingly fallen to the floor after the bill was sent to the House.

One such example was pointed out by the Libs of TikTok:

Biden said in a statement that the Senate proposal “allows the United States to continue our vital work, together with partners all around the world, to stand up for Ukraine’s freedom and support its ability to defend itself against Russia’s aggression.”

An overhaul of the asylum system is called for in the bill that would give President Biden new powers to expel migrants if those applying for asylum became too numerous for the system to handle.

In a call with reporters after releasing the bill, Senator Chuck Schumer said he has never worked so closely with McConnell and called the bill a “monumental step” toward strengthening national security at home and abroad.

But what about America’s battle with illegal migration? Or her citizens struggling with the cost of living? Or her ever increasing levels of debt? From this vantage point, it would appear as if those in Washington D.C. see the American people as the piggy bank for their pet projects like the one in Ukraine.

Not all Senators are on board with the cabal’s agenda in the Senate. Those who didn’t back Mitch McConnell were:

  • Marco Rubio
  • Mike Lee
  • Steve Daines
  • Rick Scott
  • Eric Schmitt
  • Rand Paul
  • JD Vance
  • Josh Hawley
  • Ron Johnson
  • Marsha Blackburn
  • Ted Cruz
  • Tommy Tuberville

You can tell that Senators knew a bill dedicated solely to Ukraine wouldn’t pass, so they decided to pair aid for Ukraine and Israel with funding for the protection of the nation. This is a typical political ploy politicians use in order to get the funding they want whilst trying to appease others with funding they also desire. Fortunately for the American people, their efforts on this front have effectively failed.

America can be sympathetic to the cause of nations in distress, but it is irresponsible to continue funding causes outside our borders when those inside of them are hurting and the funding and attention that has been dedicated to other nations could be used to serve them.

The only just response to this anti-America bill is what House Speaker Johnson said: it’s “dead on arrival”

Thank you for your support.
