The draft law on migration in the Senate has failed, and former US President Donald Trump has publicly welcomed it. At a rally in South Carolina, he announced plans for massive deportations if he is re-elected. Trump stated that from day one, he will support the entire open borders policy of the Biden administration and that there is no other choice. He called the rejection of the legislative package a great victory for conservatives.
The $118 billion legislative package failed in the US Senate due to resistance from Republicans. The package included changes to immigration policy and a compromise negotiated between Democrats and Republicans that linked foreign aid to US border security. However, Trump’s rejection of the package was a reason for current resistance from Republicans, who are now considering a package that decouples foreign aid from border policy.
Trump put pressure on his fellow Republicans to let the reform package fail, openly opposing it. Despite this opposition, however, the upper house is now considering a new package that completely decouples foreign aid from border policy.
