( – On Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) claimed that he would back a House-led proposal that would include aid for Israel, Ukraine, and border security provisions. 

During his appearance on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” he argued that depending on how well-written the proposal was and if it made sense to him or not they would manage to get the support of around six to eight Republicans that were interested in assisting Ukraine, but who had viewed the bipartisan border bill as not enough.

When asked whether he specifically would support a bipartisan House-led proposal he questioned whether he had voted no. He proceeded to argue that he wanted them to take action to secure the U.S. border, while also assisting Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan. He proceeded to claim that the border provisions had not been adequate. 

The Senate bipartisan bill which would give $60 billion for Ukraine and $14 billion for Israel was passed last week. As part of the deal they had also agreed to give $9 billion in humanitarian aid for Gaza. 

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has already opposed the bill that passed through the Senate. Graham had also not voted in support of the bill but argued that he would back a proposal that would be brought forward by a bipartisan group of moderate House lawmakers. 

Graham has been pushing for the “Remain in Mexico” policy to be reinstated for greater border security. As he has argued, bringing back that border security policy was going to be a game changer.
