Just In: The Extremely Controversial Border Bill Has Just Died in the Senate After Vote


The Senate on Wednesday rejected a bill that welded foreign military aid with what was billed as a border security package.

The bill, which was violently opposed by former President Donald Trump, failed on a 49-50 vote, according to NBC.

Republican Sens. James Lankford of Oklahoma, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Mitt Romney of Utah supported the bill, according to The Washington Post. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell opposed it.
