A bipartisan majority in the U.S. Senate voted 70-to-29 to advance a $95 billion dollar foreign aid package, despite warnings from House Republicans that the bill may never receive a vote.

The package contains no changes to U.S. border policy, despite early insistence by Republicans that they would not support foreign aid provisions — which provide military support for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan — without substantial changes to the Biden administration’s border policies.

But after months of bipartisan negotiation produced a border-plus-foreign-aid deal unveiled earlier this month, the plan withered in a matter of days. Many Republican senators announced their opposition to the 300-plus page bill within hours of its release.
