U.S. Senate Border Deal publicly released, House members say its "dead on arrival"

(Washington, DC)  —  A long-awaited bipartisan deal to secure the U.S.-Mexico border and provide aid to Ukraine has been unveiled.  

The full bill totals just under $120-billion, with roughly $20-billion going towards the border. It provides aid to Israel and Ukraine, as well as other foreign policy priorities. In the deal, asylum screenings would be raised, with the practice known as “catch and release” done away.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he would be bringing it to the floor this week. You can read the text of the bipartisan national security supplemental bill by clicking here.
