House Speaker Johnson says border deal 'dead on arrival' in current form

WASHINGTON - U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson said the border deal being negotiated in the Senate is "dead on arrival" in its current form, CNN reported on Friday, citing a letter to Republican lawmakers in the House of Representatives.

Lawmakers said on Thursday that bipartisan U.S. Senate talks on a border security deal that some have set as a condition for additional Ukraine aid have hit a critical point.

No draft has been released, and Johnson appears to be referring to information leaked about the border proposals being worked on as part of a supplemental funding measure combining border security with aid for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan.
