The president of the House of Representatives in the United States, Mike Johnson, took a strong stance on Friday against a settlement bipartisan to the Senate to combine the steps of border control with helping Ukraine. He sent a letter to his colleagues aligning him with the most hawkish conservatives determined to sink the deal on the border and immigration policy.
Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana, said the law is supposed to be “dead on arrival” (low camera) if the reports about him are true. While the core group of senators who negotiated with the SETTLEMENT draft text has not been published, it has been criticized by Republicans, among them Donald Trump, the possible presidential candidate, who this week said that the SETTLEMENT This is a political “gift” to the Democrats.
In the letter, Johnson said that “instead of accepting responsibility, President Biden is now trying to blame Congress for what he intended.”
The message is added to the obstacles faced by SETTLEMENT on the border with Ukraineclosing a week in which the leader of the republic, Senator McConnell, recognized with his colleagues that the law faces stiff opposition from Trump, which could force them to seek help from Kyiv in other ways. He later clarified that he still supported the merger border measures with the help of Ukraine and that the Republicans in the Senate initially demanded their votes to fund the war in Ukraine.
The diminishing prospect of a SETTLEMENT leaves the leaders of Congress with no clear path to approve an Application of the White House for 110,000 million dollars to emergency funds with Ukraine Israel, the law, immigration, and other national security needs. President Joe Biden has made it a top priority to strengthen the defense of Kyiv against Russia, but its government has run out of money to send ammunition and missiles. The supporters of Ukraine warned that the stagnation of Congress has already been felt on the battlefields and has left the Ukrainian soldiers at a disadvantage.
Johnson is already skeptical of any bipartisan compromise border policy that requires the consent of the Senate. On Friday, he also outlined a broad set of immigration measures that the lower chamber approved last year in response to border challenges from the country. But for that project law, he failed to get a single Democratic vote before and has almost no chance of getting Democratic support now.
To enter an election year, Republicans desire to remember the fact that a historical number of immigrants arrived in the United States during Biden’s presidency. His government responded that the global unrest was driving migration and tried to implement humanitarian policies regarding border surveillance.
