RSC Chairman Hern and U.S. Senator JD Vance urge colleagues to pass a standalone Israel aid bill

Washington, DC – Today, Republican Study Committee Chairman Kevin Hern (OK-01) and U.S. Senator JD Vance (R-OH) released the following statement on the ongoing negotiations regarding the border and Ukraine aid.

“For months, Senate leadership has attempted to trade Ukraine aid for a bill that would secure America’s border,” said Chairman Hern and Sen. Vance. “If news reports are in any way accurate, that border negotiation is a complete policy failure. It’s time to address the issues that unite Republicans, not divide them. We commend the Speaker for standing firm against this bad border deal, and urge him to put a clean, un-offset Israel bill on the floor of the House immediately. Let’s put an end to House and Senate Democrats’ political games on Israel.”
