BORDERS ABROAD: $1.2T Spending Package Includes $380M for Border Security for Middle Eastern Countries; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.01.24

According to a Fox News report, the $1.2 trillion dollar spending package signed by President Biden last month included $380 million dollars for border security for Middle Eastern countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and Oman.

From Fox News:

The $1.2 trillion package, which includes funding for defense and homeland security among other agencies, includes an appropriation for $380 million that is to remain available until September 2025 to reimburse Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and Oman for “enhanced border security.” Of that, $150 million is specifically dedicated to Jordan.

It’s an inclusion that has been in a number of omnibus budgets in recent years and upset a number of Republicans, who see it as wasteful and coming at a time when some Democrats are wary of spending money on border walls and similar measures at the U.S. southern border.

“But you see them running this thing through by dark of night with billions in things that – they’re doing border security in foreign countries, and they’re impeding border security in our country,” Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., said in 2022.

Conservative firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of the GOP voices who opposed the $1.2 trillion dollar package, continues to rail against President Biden and House Speaker Mike Johnson for failing to secure the U.S. southern border.

“The only thing necessary for evil to triumph in the world is that good men do nothing. Speaker Johnson completely surrendered all power we had in the House to stop horrendous crimes like child rape by illegals when he fully funded Biden’s deadly open border without a fight,” MTG said in a post on X.

“If Speaker Johnson gives another $60 billion to the defense of Ukraine’s border after he FULLY FUNDED Biden’s deadly open border, the cruel joke would be on the American people. And it won’t be April Fools,” said in another post on X.
