Senate Resumes Talks on Ukraine Funding and Border Security After Weekend Negotiations, But Still No Deal in Sight




On Monday, Senators returned to work after a long weekend on Capitol Hill to resume efforts on striking a deal concerning border security, immigration policy, and Ukraine aid.


Despite some progress over the weekend, there seems to be little likelihood of a final vote taking place anytime soon, according to Punchbowl News.


In an attempt to expedite the process, Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer has delayed members' holiday recess. The argument being that any delay in providing aid to Ukraine would severely hinder its efforts to combat Russia in their ongoing war.



Furthermore, GOP senators have expressed that they will not advance any foreign aid bill without first having a legislative text on the border security and immigration provisions, as reported by Punchbowl.


In addition to these developments, Punchbowl also reports that Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford, the lead GOP negotiator, have jointly stated that if Schumer proceeds with the plan to hold a procedural vote this week, it is unlikely to succeed.


It is worth noting that while progress has been made, further negotiations and discussions are expected to take place before any final decisions are made.
