The US Senate has failed to pass a draft law on migration, with former President Donald Trump welcoming the failure and announcing plans for massive deportations if he is re-elected. At a rally in South Carolina, Trump stated that he will support the entire open borders policy of the Biden administration and begin the largest national deportation operation in history.
The legislative package, worth $118 billion, was rejected by Republicans due to opposition from Trump, who intends to use border policy as a campaign issue in the upcoming presidential election. The rejection of the package was a great victory for conservatives who oppose any changes to immigration policy.
Trump has openly opposed the reform package and put pressure on his fellow Republicans to let it fail. The upper house is now considering a package that completely decouples foreign aid from border policy, which is seen as a way to appease conservative voters who are opposed to any immigration reforms.
