Democrat Admits Wanting To Separate Border And Ukraine Funding

via 60 Minutes

Democratic Senator Chris Murphy discussed the proposed $106 billion spending package, including aid for Ukraine, Israel, and state and local governments.

He responded to criticism from Republicans, defending the coupling of foreign aid and border security in the spending bill.

Murphy emphasized the need to separate the issues, expressing willingness to collaborate with Republicans. (Trending: Tucker Carlson Reveals ‘Secret’ Project He’s Been Working On For Months)

“You said the White House is more involved now. Do you think [Sen. Lankford] has a point by saying the Biden Administration coupled it together and now we’ve got to deal with it together?” asked CNN’s Poppy Harlow.

“I don’t because it’s fairly normal for there to be these emergency spending bills before Congress when we have insufficient funds for the operation of the border or for our foreign policy objectives,” said Murphy.

“It’s very different to say on top of that funding we are going to make major changes in law. And that’s what Republicans are asking for,” claimed the Connecticut Democrat.

“They are asking for very severe, very draconian immigration policy changes. Policy changes that they know could not pass if they weren’t holding up support for the war against Vladimir Putin,” said Murphy.

“But isn’t that the exact point?” Harlow responded.

“Isn’t that their exact point? It’s a crisis, I think many people agree what’s happening at the border is a crisis. So this is a moment we got to deal with it at home and then we’re going to help Ukraine, too?” followed up the host.

“Yeah, I think we should separate the two,” Murphy answered.

Murphy added, “I don’t think that Vladimir Putin should be given a green light to invade and conquer Ukraine in Europe simply because for 40 years we’ve had a tough time coming to a conclusion on immigration policy.”

“But listen, Poppy, we’re going to work at this. I’m at the table. I hear what Republicans have been saying. We are going to try to come to a conclusion. And I’m sitting down with Senator Lankford and others in good faith this week,” revealed Murphy.

Additionally, Democratic leaders at the state and local level expressed dissatisfaction with the aid proposal, citing concerns about the influx of migrants.
