Senator Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) bluntly condemned fellow Republicans, labeling their opposition to a crucial border deal as “immoral” and driven solely by the desire to boost former President Trump.

“I didn’t come here to have the president as a boss or a candidate as a boss. I came here to pass good, solid policy,” Tillis said Thursday, according to NBC News. “It is immoral for me to think you looked the other way because you think this is the linchpin for President Trump to win.”

Both Democrats and Republicans have expressed frustration over Trump’s relentless efforts to sabotage the border deal, aiming to deprive President Biden of a legislative win. Trump’s brazen call for GOP House members to reject any border deal adds fuel to the fire in the Senate.

With Trump gaining momentum in Iowa and New Hampshire and eyeing the Republican presidential nomination, his Senate allies aggressively move to dismantle the border package. This power play could not only imperil vital aid for Ukraine in its conflict with Russia but also underscores a dangerous willingness to jeopardize national interests for political gamesmanship.

Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) doesn’t mince words, denouncing the attempt to derail the bill as “appalling.” He argues that addressing the southern border issue should be an urgent priority for any presidential candidate, emphasizing the need for immediate action over delayed credit-seeking.

Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) is floating the idea of separating the border and Ukraine components of Biden’s request, yet the stakes are clear. The GOP’s willingness to play politics with crucial legislation not only risks national security but also exposes a party grappling with internal power struggles at the expense of the American people.
