Members of the Republican Party are criticizing senate lawmakers’ proposal to send $14 billion to protect Ukraine’s border but failing to pass $5 billion in funding to build a border wall to protect America’s border.

The $14 billion in assistance is part of a broader $1.5 trillion spending measure to dramatically increase funding for various federal programs.

In 2018, former President Donald Trump refused to sign an emergency short-term spending bill to keep the government’s lights on over demands that it include $5 billion in funding for a border wall along the southwestern border.
