President Joe Biden’s border chief has proposed capping illegal migration at one million a year if the GOP approves $61 billion for the war in Ukraine.

The offer, aimed at curbing mass migration, has sparked negotiations, with some GOP members viewing it as a good faith offer.

However, not all Republicans are on board, and a deal before Christmas seems unlikely. (Trending: Joe Biden Impeachment Formalized As Republicans Unite)

“We’re at 11,000” illegals per day, Sen. Thom Tillis said.

“We’ve seen what the White House has sent over … We’ve got to get somewhere closer to … 2,000 [migrants] a day [or 700,000 a year], and let’s figure out how we get it done.”

“But I think I’m going take it as a good faith offer, which is why I think we have to act in good faith and stay here [in Washington] until we get it negotiated.”

“They’re using this to try to put something together — I’m not going take the bait,” Sen. Lindsey Graham said.

The proposal also involves granting border officials the power to expel migrants without asylum screenings during high border crossings.

The talks are led by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who has been working to manage the flow of migrants into the United States.

“I am, to a great extent, aligned with the expectations” of the immigrant community, Mayorkas said.

The offer is met with skepticism, with some viewing it as a concession that does little to address border security.

The negotiations involve several GOP senators, with differing views on migration policies.

“Republicans are not so much being asked to compromise as to conspire in Biden’s lawbreaking,” said Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor.

“Not petty lawbreaking but rather a betrayal of the core security duties of the presidency that is destroying the social welfare and law-enforcement capabilities of America’s border states and major cities.”

“Given how boiling angry much of the country is over this issue, I don’t understand why Republicans aren’t driving a much harder bargain.”

“I will not go back to South Carolina and try to explain why I helped Ukraine, Taiwan, and Israel and did nothing to secure our own border,” Graham said.

“I will help all of our allies, but we’ve got to help ourselves first,” he added.

“Another show vote on the supplemental —with inadequate or nonexistent border security measures — does not move the ball,” Graham said.

“I’m looking for outcomes, not timelines,” he said, adding, “There’s no legislative text.”
