Senate Republicans voted to prevent the Senate from starting debate on a $110 billion national security finding, including money for Ukraine and Israel, over demands that Democrats include immigration policy measures in the package.

Lawmakers have privately hoped that the public failure will help them reset the troubled negotiations on a broader security bill ahead of a planned break for Christmas and New Years. The White House stepped up warnings in recent days that a failure to pass the funding could have dire consequences for democracy across the globe.

President Biden said on Wednesday that Congress needed to approve funding for Ukraine before it leaves Washington for the holidays or it would strengthen the position of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
