The Senate border deal was recently released and many on the right were utterly outraged by it. In their view, it is a total backdown to the left that will deliver next to nothing of value for conservatives concerned about the state of things at the border, while also potentially opening the door to many more illegal immigrants. Yet worse, in the view of angered conservatives, is that supposed members of the right have gone along with the deal.
Among those who was angry about the situation is the politically-minded son of former President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr. He took the opportunity to rake Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell over the coals, accusing him of being in favor of amnesty and in mental decline.
Posting about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his numerous flaws as a leader of conservatives on X (formerly Twitter), Donald Trump Jr. wrote, “Why do Senate Republicans continue to allow themselves to be led by a mentally declining pro-amnesty turtle?”
Former President Trump chimed in and attacked the Senate border deal as well, saying that it is one that only leftists could possibly be in favor of. Posting about the matter on his Truth Social platform, Trump said, “Only a fool, or a Radical Left Democrat, would vote for this horrendous Border Bill, which only gives Shutdown Authority after 5000 Encounters a day, when we already have the right to CLOSE THE BORDER NOW, which must be done.”
Continuing, Trump added that the bill would be the death knell of the GOP and be great for Democrats, particularly in that it would take the border pressure off their shoulders. He said, “This Bill is a great gift to the Democrats, and a Death Wish for The Republican Party. It takes the HORRIBLE JOB the Democrats have done on Immigration and the Border, absolves them, and puts it all squarely on the shoulders of Republicans.”
Concluding the post, Trump argued that America needs a laser-focused border bill that will lock down the border and force the Democrats to fix the situation they created. He said, “Don’t be STUPID!!! We need a separate Border and Immigration Bill. It should not be tied to foreign aid in any way, shape, or form! The Democrats broke Immigration and the Border. They should fix it. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”
In any case, the Senate border deal is likely a dead letter in the House. Speaker of the House Mike Johnson has vowed that it will be dead on arrival if it passes through the Senate, and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise recently declared that it would never even make it to a vote on the House floor because of how terrible it is.
Making that pledge and noting the issues he has with the deal, Rep. Scalise wrote, “Let me be clear: The Senate Border Bill will NOT receive a vote in the House. Here’s what the people pushing this “deal” aren’t telling you: It accepts 5,000 illegal immigrants a day and gives automatic work permits to asylum recipients—a magnet for more illegal immigration.”
