House Speaker Mike Johnson has stated that there will be no additional funding for Ukraine without significant reforms to the U.S. immigration system.

This ultimatum poses a challenge to the Biden administration’s efforts to secure more aid for Ukraine amid declining Republican support.

“There is no magical pot of funding available to meet this moment. We are out of money—and nearly out of time,” Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young wrote. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“Cutting off the flow of U.S. weapons and equipment will kneecap Ukraine on the battlefield, not only putting at risk the gains Ukraine has made, but increasing the likelihood of Russian military victories.”

“Already, our packages of security assistance have become smaller and the deliveries of aid have become more limited. If our assistance stops, it will cause significant issues for Ukraine,” she added.

Johnson’s letter emphasizes that Ukraine aid is contingent on border security law reforms.

“The American people feel very strongly about this, and I do as well. We have things that we can and should do around the world, but we have to take care of our own house first,” Johnson said.

“As long as the border is wide open, we’re opening ourselves up for great threats. And again, it’s just a matter of principle that if we’re going to take care of a border in Ukraine, we need to take care of America’s as well.”

“And I think there’s bipartisan support for that idea.”

The development follows a warning from the White House that Ukraine aid funding will run out by the end of 2023.

The issue of pairing Ukraine funding and immigration funding into the same bill has been raised, with Johnson stressing the importance of addressing domestic concerns alongside foreign aid.
