WASHINGTON – Senator Mike Braun released the following statement on his upcoming “No” vote on a procedural measure to move forward on the Senate’s Ukraine package which includes an immigration bill. The vote is expected at 1pm today.
“President Biden created this border crisis – he reversed strong policies on day one, refuses to enforce our laws, and could end this crisis today with the stroke of a pen.
