Vance: ‘Ukraine-First’ Border Package ‘Being Shoved Down the Throat of the U.S. Senate’

by AG News Staff


U.S. Sen. J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) said today that his fellow Republicans “have to” defeat the “Ukraine-first” border package being “shoved down” their throats.

“There’s an Ukraine first package being shoved down the throat of the US Senate,” Vance posted on X. “It doesn’t secure our border, gives away all leverage to achieve real border security, and no one has had time to read through the details. Let’s defeat this package. We have to.”

Vance yesterday called the border bill “pure, unadulterated b******t” and criticized the package for being negotiated in secret.

The bill would provide $60 billion in “military aid” to Ukraine, but only $20 billion to secure the U.S. Border.

That Ukraine amount is more than the $53.9 billion budget for U.S. Marine Corps in FY2023, pointed out U.S. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah).

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-Ala.) said the bill is “dead on arrival” in the House and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) yesterday urged Republicans to block the bill.

Senate President Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) reportedly plans to push a bill today that would include funding for Ukraine and Israel, while stripping out the actual border provisions.

The border package was negotiated in secret by Sens. James Lankford, (R-Okla.), Krysten Sinema, (I-Ariz.), and Chris Murphy, (D-Conn).
