US Senate reaches agreement on migration and aid to Ukraine and Israel

Democrats and Republicans in the US Senate reached an agreement Sunday evening local time on immigration restrictions, a new aid package for Ukraine and aid for Israel, according to international news agencies. The proposal includes a total of $118.3 billion (€109.8 billion), including $60.1 billion (€55.8 billion) for Ukraine and $14.1 billion (€13 billion) for Israel.

Republicans have demanded tougher immigration rules in exchange for agreeing to billions in new aid to Ukraine. It has been agreed that if more than 4,000 people report at the border every day, migrants can be turned back at the border, and if more than 5,000 people report at the border every day, they must be turned back. The number of immigrants trying to enter the United States is now at an all-time high.

The Senate will vote on the proposal for the first time on Wednesday. The House of Representatives must also ratify the deal and much opposition is expected.
