As Republicans want to tie foreign assistance to changes in immigration policy, Democrats must remain steadfast, according to Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who spoke on Sunday.

During her appearance on Sunday’s “State of the Union” on CNN, Democratic Washington state senator Michael Jayapal stated, “They are holding funding for Israel and Ukraine hostage to reforms to the asylum system that will destroy the refugee system… Things that would be impossible to accomplish with the current system of operations. Furthermore, I believe it is time for us to stand firm and refuse.

“Vote on the aid package without those border policy changes,” the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus added. And acknowledge that the Biden administration has been successful in implementing some of its policies.

In a statement last week, House Speaker Mike Johnson expressed his expectation that Congress will be able to approve more financing for Israel and Ukraine in the upcoming weeks, subject to the resolution of border security concerns. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who spoke on Sunday just before Jayapal, argued that immigration reforms should be contingent upon funding for Ukraine. Graham made it clear that he would not support foreign aid unless the United States’ border was safe.

Republicans have voiced their belief that the current system, and the parole system in particular, which permits the temporary release of certain immigrants into the US, requires reform in order to handle the influx of people at the southern border. Additionally, they aim to alter U.S. policy regarding asylum applications, a protection meant to protect individuals who are suffering persecution in their home country or reasonably anticipate being persecuted there.

More evil than just reform was what Jayapal detected.

“The border is not the issue at hand,” she stated. They have not been successful in dismantling the immigration system by regular order, and this is going to change that. Thus, they aim to destroy the asylum system in exchange for aid for Ukraine. It’s really outrageous. If they really want to be in that position, we should just tell them “no” and make them vote against this vital aid.
