Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson called the new senate bill “dead on arrival” following its release Sunday night, leading the way for a slew of GOP lawmakers heavily criticizing the potential deal. 

Senate bipartisan lawmakers released the full text of a $118 billion border security and foreign aid package on Sunday night, as tensions over the ongoing migrant crisis increase.

While early reports of the bill had some Republican members worried over alleged legal loopholes within the deal, the release of the text seems to have confirmed concerns for many. 

“I’ve seen enough. This bill is even worse than we expected, and won’t come close to ending the border catastrophe the President has created. As the lead Democrat negotiator proclaimed: Under this legislation, “the border never closes.” If this bill reaches the House, it will be dead on arrival,” Johnson posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) immediately after the release.

Fellow GOP lawmakers echoed Johnson’s statement on the deal, with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., claiming that the House would “impeach Mayorkas this week” and called the deal dead on arrival within the House.

“The Senate border surrender deal is DOA in the House. We are going to impeach Mayorkas this week not empower him with a legalized invasion of 1.8 million per year with amnesty while funding the defense of other country’s borders,” Greene stated in a post.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., slammed the “so-called border security provisions,” stating that they seek to “codify amnesty and would force future presidents to allow illegals across our border.” Luna additionally stated that anyone who votes for the deal “will betray the American people.”

Rep. Byron Donalds labeled the bill as “awful,” stating in an online post the need for “41 Republican Senators who will say NO to this monstrosity.”

Johnson released a joint statement with House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, GOP Majority Whip Tom Emmer, and New York Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik on Monday, highlighting a few of the failing areas within the deal.

The joint press release noted that “any consideration” of the deal within its “current form is a waste of time.” The leaders encouraged Senate lawmakers to reject the deal, which is expected to be voted on no later than Wednesday.
