GOP blocks COVID-19 deal over border policy change

Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would spend an additional $10 billion on COVID-19 relief after Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) opposed a vote on reinstating Title 42 to stop illegal immigrants from crossing the southern border.

The block included all 50 Republican senators, leaving the pandemic relief bill far short of the 60 needed votes.

“Since Title 42 is being terminated because COVID is over, why do we need to spend another $10 billion on COVID relief or wear masks on airplanes,” Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn said.

In addition to Republicans, several Democrats have joined in support of keeping Title 42 in place until a new immigration reform bill can be passed.

“Until we have comprehensive, bipartisan immigration reform that commits to securing our borders and providing a pathway to citizenship for qualified immigrants, Title 42 must stay in place,” West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin said.

The issue of Title 42 is likely to remain a thorny issue. The Trump-era policy is scheduled to end on May 23.
