‘The Border Deal Is an Easy NO’

‘The Border Deal Is an Easy NO’

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) came out against the Senate border bill after it was unveiled Sunday evening.

“The ‘border deal’ is an easy NO. It reads like a parody of an actual border security bill,” he posted on X.

Rubio is part of a growing list of Senate Republicans who have come out since Sunday as a “no” on the bill.

The Immigration Accountability Project, a group advocating for securing the U.S.-Mexico border, highlighted some of the bill’s worst provisions in a graphic.

As Breitbart News’ Neil Munro reported, the bill was assembled behind closed doors by a tight circle of establishment advocates — and their business donors.

They included Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who appointed three senators to negotiate a plan with the White House. The three senators were Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ).

The White House side was advised by Biden’s pro-migration border chief, Alejandro Mayorkas.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has already indicated that the Senate bill would be dead on arrival in the House.
