Romney Rips ‘Clueless’ Democrats For Trying To Negotiate Border Spending

via CBS Evening News

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, insists that Republicans want a closed border as part of potential emergency spending.

He criticized “clueless” Democrats for wanting to negotiate border provisions.

The White House requested $14 billion for the southern border crisis, including funds for border operations, DNA collection, and support for migrants. (Trending: Joe Biden Admits He’s ‘Not Sure’ About Running If Trump Wasn’t)

“Dems want $106B—GOP wants a closed border. That’s the trade,” Romney posted.

“But clueless Dems want to negotiate the border bill. Not going to happen.”

“Is an open border more important to Dems than Ukraine and Israel?”

Republicans seek higher asylum standards and limits on parole.

House conservatives push for reinstating Trump-era measures, while Senate Democrats link policy changes to amnesty for illegal immigrants.

A coalition of 11 Democratic senators opposes harmful changes to the asylum system, emphasizing the need for a clear path to legalization for long-standing undocumented immigrants.

“As negotiations surrounding the supplemental aid package progress, we are concerned about reports of harmful changes to our asylum system that will potentially deny lifesaving humanitarian protection for vulnerable people, including children, and fail to deliver any meaningful improvement to the situation at the border,” the coalition wrote.

“Using a one-time spending package to enact these unrelated permanent policy changes sets a dangerous precedent and risks assistance to our international partners,” they said.

“Any proposal considering permanent changes to our asylum and immigration system needs to include a clear path to legalization for long-standing undocumented immigrants.”
