The Republican Party’s fierce demands for border reform have been welcomed by immigration experts who are skeptical of the party’s resistance to demands from wealthy donors to move more wealthy Americans.
“This is probably a Christmas miracle,” said Robert Roe, director of the Center on Homeland Security and Immigration at the America First Policy Institute. he added:
Honestly, the first piece is [political] advice [for Republicans] It means not betraying the American people like Judas did.
Continue to advocate for border security and hold the front line. No issue is more important to Americans today than securing our southern border. It’s about taking cartels out of business and keeping them out of human trafficking. [of] Smuggle all the fentanyl. That’s what the American people want resolved. Everything else is secondary.
But there is ~ some evidence The senators say politicians are betraying Republican voters if they aggressively promote the public’s clear support for border reform before the election.

Critically, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has done little to curb immigration throughout his career. But he has repeatedly touted his funding for Ukraine, in part because he believes it will shape his post-retirement legacy.
“He lived through the Cold War and believes deeply that this is a moment in history when America needs to assert leadership,” said Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), McConnell’s deputy. Stated. Said Politico in late October.
But for now, McConnell said Ukraine won’t receive any cash until Democrats agree to accept Republican border reforms. He on Tuesday rejected Schumer’s plan to approve the entire funding in a Wednesday vote. saying:

This is not a traditional negotiation in which the hope is to find a bipartisan compromise on border issues. This is the price you have to pay to get the supplement.
