Senate Republicans Threaten to Block Bipartisan Border Security Package

Senate Republicans have threatened to block a major bipartisan border security and asylum restrictions package, just one day after their chief negotiator signed off on it. GOP senators claim they need more time to discuss changes to the bill through amendments. This move could be detrimental to the package, which House Republican leaders have already dismissed. Former President Donald Trump has urged Republicans to sink the agreement, calling it a “highly sophisticated trap.” The bill’s proponents hoped for strong bipartisan support to sway the House.
