Senator McConnell Promotes Border Bill 

Senate Majority Leader Schumer says Ukraine, Israel, and Indo-Pacific aid still hang in the balance.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has commended the deal that Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma has made with the majority as “the most substantial border security policy in 30 years.” 

Senator McConnell said, “America’s allies looked to us to lead by example, to deliver decisive capabilities to Ukraine, and to step up investments in upgrading our arsenal and expanding our capacity to stock it.” 

He added, “Will we act to secure America’s sovereign borders and help our friends fighting for theirs.” 

“Ukraine is already running low on armaments and munitions that were in large part provided by the United States,“ Majority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer cautioned. “The future of the war in Ukraine hangs in the balance. … The safety of our friends in Israel, our partners in the Indo-Pacific, and more humanitarian aid for innocent civilians in Gaza all hang in the balance.” 

 He continued, “There are a handful of issues that have not yet been agreed to. So negotiations are not done yet.” 

The main question is whether the final negotiated bill will survive in the House.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Senators Schumer and McConnell as they negotiate legislation in the Senate.
  • For House Speaker Johnson to receive God’s wisdom as he brings bills to the floor for a vote.
