President Joe Biden is holding our own border security hostage in order to funnel more tax dollars to Ukraine. This week, the White House pitched a combined $100 billion emergency “security” funding package to Congress primarily aimed at confronting Russia, with less than 15 percent of the measure’s proposed spending set aside for our southern border.
In a prime-time address from the Oval Office Thursday night, Biden presented the package as “an urgent budget request to fund America’s national security needs” and “to support our critical partners, including Israel and Ukraine.”
More than $61 billion outlined in the proposal, however, is directed towards Ukraine. Less than $15 billion goes to security for the southern border, which Biden’s proposal makes dependent on lawmakers’ willingness to ramp up Ukraine funding by about 50 percent. The Biden administration already committed $113 billion in Ukraine aid last year, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.
