The GOP Fears Working With Biden More Than It Cares About Fixing the Border Crisis [sic]

“The proposed border deal package looks like an obvious Republican victory to this old-school Reagan conservative. It funds our allies, Israel (against Hamas) and Ukraine (against Russia’s invasion), and it tightens border security. It’s a win-win. No wonder MAGA Republicans hate it. A rational conservative party would leap at the chance to pass this bill. Even if you were a right-wing border hawk who won’t rest until we dig an alligator-filled moat along the southern border, this deal still beats the status quo.” [editor’s note: An “old-school Reagan conservative” would presumably remember that Reagan wanted the constitutionally required system, aka open borders, not to Make America East Germany Again – TLK] (02/06/24)
