Senate Approves $118 Billion Border Deal Despite House Rejections

The United States Senate has approved a $118 billion, 370-page, bipartisan border bill. The Senate is controlled by Democrats. Republican Speaker of the House Mike Johnson says the bill is dead on arrival. President Trump says anyone who approves the bill is a fool due to its contents. Other critics of the bill say it is entirely unnecessary as there was no issue with the border until President Joe Biden came to office. The bill is a response to the border crisis that has seen an unprecedented influx of migrants pour into the United States. Texas reports that as many as 10,000 migrants per day are coming through the border.
