“House Republicans oppose the Senate immigration bill because it fails in every policy area needed to secure our border and will actually encourage more illegal immigration,” Johnson said in a statement.

According to him, “American sovereignty is at stake,” and the bill is already “dead” at the stage of entering the House of Representatives.

US senators earlier released a “long-awaited bipartisan agreement” to secure the US-Mexico border and provide new military aid to Ukraine. According to The Hill, the bill was drawn up following several months of negotiations.

The document proposes to allocate $118 billion to help Israel, Ukraine and to ensure security at the US borders. Approximately $60 billion is provided to finance military operations in the Northern Military District zone.
