Republicans Approve $40 Billion to Ukraine While America Suffers at Its Own Southern Border

See the list of House Republicans who approved the bill, including Cheney, Crenshaw, Kinzinger, McCarthy.

QUICK FACTS:
  • The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday approved a new $40 billion Ukraine aid package, 149 Republicans voting ‘Yes’ on the legislation. See the list below.
  • The amount was approved 368-57 margin and provided $7 billion more than Biden’s initial request from April.
  • The measure was backed by every House Democrat, but also by nearly 3 out of 4 Republicans.
  • The bill would raise the amount sent to Ukraine from U.S. taxpayers to $54 billion, including the $13.6 billion in support Congress enacted in March. That figure signifies about $6 billion more than the U.S. spent on all its foreign and military aid in 2019, according to a Congressional Research Service report. The number also signifies around 1% of the entire federal budget.
  • As the U.S. itself struggles with backlogs of immigration cases at the Southern Border, Title 42—the pandemic-era policy that quickly sends illegal migrants back to Mexico—is expected to expire and add to an already growing number of cases.
  • The backlog of cases has increased to over 1.7 million, according to Syracuse University TRAC.
  • Roughly 1.2 million and 1.4 million illegal immigrants have already infiltrated the U.S. since Biden took office, while fewer than 60,000 have been deported.
  • Over the past year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has encountered a record-breaking 2.2 million migrants along the southern border, FOX News reports. Border Patrol agents are outnumbered and overwhelmed, giving opportunities for dangerous criminals and substances to move across our border undetected.
  • Cartels and criminal organizations take advantage of vulnerable migrants, smuggle guns, and traffic prolific amounts of drugs like marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin, and fentanyl. From January to March 2022 alone, CBP seized more than 150,000 pounds of drugs.
  • More than 100,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in 2021, up 15% from 2020, according to figures released Wednesday by the National Center for Health Statistics.
