GOP Lawmakers Reveal NEW Border Bill

House GOP lawmakers have introduced a new border bill after Speaker Mike Johnson’s position was threatened this week.

Obviously, the bill is an attempt to pacify members of the Freedom Caucus and other hardline conservatives who have taken a staunch stance on the border.

Hopefully, the provisions laid out in the bill will help to mitigate the ongoing crisis at the border.

However, when people are essentially told to come over here and the head of the DHS does absolutely nothing to stem the millions of people illegally crossing, there are deeper problems than infrastructure.

Make no mistake, those things help, but this crisis goes all the way up to the top. Call me cynical, but a meaningful change won’t come until the current administration is out.

News of the bill made headlines and caused disagreement among the GOP:

The Epoch Times outlined the border protection provisions laid out in the bill:

Legislation known as H.R. 2 was initially passed in the House last May and aims to reform the asylum system with a priority to reduce frivolous applications while still keeping the U.S. border intact, restart the process of building more extensive border fortifications, require reporting on illegal activities of Mexican drug cartels and foreign terrorist organizations at the border, clarify standards for keeping families united in immigration detention, and reforming immigration parole rules, among other measures.

GOP lawmakers shared different thoughts and opinions regarding the crisis at the border with Mexico, yet nothing has so far been done to mitigate the ongoing crisis.

Fox News provided the opinions of dissenting Republican lawmakers:

“Anything less than tying Ukraine aid to real border security fails to live up to [Johnson’s] own words just several weeks ago. Our constituents demand – and deserve – more from us,” Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., wrote on X.

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, similarly said, “The Republican Speaker of the House is seeking a rule to pass almost $100 billion in foreign aid – while unquestionably, dangerous criminals, terrorists, & fentanyl pour across our border.

The border ‘vote’ in this package is a watered-down dangerous cover vote. I will oppose.”
