Bidens Backdoor Wheeling and Dealing

It’s clear that for the Biden administration, Ukraine takes precedence over America, as they appear willing to address the southern border crisis only if House Republicans approve extra funding for Ukraine.

But it shouldn’t have come to this point for the President to tackle the immigration catastrophe.

President Joe Biden should have taken action to secure the southern border long ago, which currently lies in disarray due to his lenient border policies.

The White House unveiled a $105 billion funding package in October 2023, allocating $61 billion to Israel and the remainder to Ukraine, as both nations defend themselves following invasions.

Subsequently, House Republicans proposed their own version of the funding, directing $14 billion to Israel from the IRS’s ample funding pool.

In light of the impasse on the aid packages, the White House appears ready to finally address the escalating southern border crisis, according to sources cited by Politico.

A former Biden administration official noted that the White House’s willingness to address illegal immigration in exchange for Ukraine aid carries significant risks, both substantively and politically.

“It could get ugly,” warned the former official.

House Republicans recently passed their $14 billion aid package for Israel with a vote of 226-196. If the Senate follows suit, the Department of Defense will receive funds to replace equipment previously supplied to Israel as military aid.

Since Biden assumed office, the United States has faced an unprecedented immigration crisis, with cities like Chicago and New York suffering the most. Biden, who has allowed the crisis to persist for three years, now seems open to addressing it, but only if Ukraine receives billions more dollars.

The immigration issue has become so severe in cities across America that even leftist mayors have pleaded with the Biden administration to take action.

“It’s pretty hard to ignore when both parties in Congress, the White House, and mayors from major cities all agree that there needs to be resources and changes regarding how we manage migration,” a former administration official acknowledged. “But where it quickly breaks down is what does that look like? And what are the specific policy changes?”
