Several GOP senators spoke out against a bipartisan proposal to address the southern border and provide more aid to Ukraine.
On Wednesday on Capitol Hill, a group of conservative senators had argued that the deal would not solve the border crisis and may even make the situation worse.
Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) suggested that Republicans working on the deal will be focusing on including aid for Ukraine’s war effort rather than actually addressing the border crisis.
Cruz stressed that Joe Biden is not doing enough with the laws already at his disposal and he accused Democrats of “wanting open borders.”
“If Democrats cared about fixing the border, they would have already fixed it,” he said.
GOP senators expressed doubts over whether the deal would pass the House. Florida’s Rick Scott said that he believes that it will be “dead on arrival” in the lower chamber.
