House Republicans to Pass Ukraine Aid after Dropping Border Demands

House Republican Leadership Backs Down on Border Security Demand for Ukraine Aid

At the recent House Republican retreat, Speaker Mike Johnson made a surprising announcement. The House leadership will no longer insist on addressing border security before providing further aid to Ukraine. Instead, bills to fund Ukraine’s defense and Israel’s military efforts against Hamas will be brought up separately in the coming weeks.

This decision marks a significant shift from Mr. Johnson’s previous stance, where he demanded that supplemental Ukraine funding be dependent on border security legislation. The legislation for immigration reform and border security previously faced opposition from the GOP in the House and eventually died in the Senate.

The news of the change in approach from House Republican leadership comes as a surprise, especially considering the potential resistance from the far right within the party. Member Marjorie Taylor Greene, a vocal supporter of former President Trump, even went as far as to threaten to trigger a vote to remove Mr. Johnson if a bill to fund Ukraine’s military was put on the House floor.

However, Mr. Johnson now faces the possibility of a tough political fight if a motion to vacate is brought against him. This is due to the GOP’s slim majority in the House, which could make his position as Speaker precarious. It remains to be seen how this latest development will impact the ongoing debate over funding for Ukraine and border security in Congress.
