The new spending deal includes support for the nations of Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, Oman, Nepal, Libya, and Pakistan.

The bill does preserve $2 billion in previous border wall funds, but does not fund any new border wall construction.
“The upcoming omnibus spending bill is likely Congress’ last chance this year to do anything meaningful re: Biden’s catastrophic erasure of our border,” former Trump adviser Stephen Miller wrote.
“Presently, this isn’t even a topic of conversation, let alone action,” he added.
