The Senate has approved a massive $95 billion emergency foreign aid package with no U.S. border security.

A group of RINOs joined Democrats to support the bill. The measure passed by a vote of 79 to 18.

The passing of the bill saw 48 Democrats joined by 31 Republicans in favor, with the majority of the RINOs supporting the foreign aid efforts. However, 15 Republicans broke ranks to vote against the package, joining three Democrats in opposition.

The finalized bill encompasses extensive provisions:

$47.7 billion through the Defense Department to support Ukraine’s military with training, equipment, weapons, and logistical aid.
$13.4 billion to restock U.S. military equipment sent to Ukraine.
$20.5 billion for U.S. Armed Forces support in Europe.
$9.5 billion in economic aid to Ukraine as a forgivable loan.
Added to this is 15 billion** in military aid designated for Israel and **9 billion in humanitarian assistance for Gaza and other conflict zones, a point of contention for conservative Republicans concerned about the funds being intercepted by Hamas.
The bill also allots $8 billion to counter Chinese aggression in the Indo-Pacific and introduces legislation that could lead to a forced divestment or potential ban of TikTok in the United States.

This vote comes after the globalist sycophants, led by globalist Speaker Mike Johnson, passed three separate foreign-aid bills that will provide funding to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, transferring a total of $95 billion from the U.S. Treasury directly to foreign governments. The massive foreign-aid package now heads to Joe Biden, where it will be rubber-stamped and signed.

“I will sign this into law immediately to send a message to the world,” said Joe Biden in a statement urging Democrats in the House and the Democrat-controlled Senate to pass the un-American legislation.
