Speaker Mike Johnson rejected the reported details of a border compromise, emphasizing that the House-passed H.R. 2 border security bill should be the baseline for any deal.

The proposed Senate compromise includes various provisions such as increasing green cards, work permits for certain groups, and taxpayer-funded lawyers for certain individuals.

Johnson stressed the importance of comprehensive solutions, stating that removing major provisions from the House bill would render it ineffective in addressing the migrant flow. (Trending: Hunter Biden’s Art Scheme Exposed By GOP Probe)

Meanwhile, Lead Republican Sen. James Lankford worked on the compromise but acknowledged challenges in aligning with the House bill.

“If you don’t end catch and release as a policy, if you don’t reinstitute remain in Mexico, if you only fix asylum or parole and not these other things, then you don’t solve the problem. You don’t stem the flow here,” Johnson said.

“If it looks like H.R. 2, we’ll talk about it,” he noted previously.

The issue of border security remains a pressing concern, especially with record-high migrant encounters at the southern border in December.
