Senate rejects border security deal for a second time

The Senate voted down a bipartisan border security deal on Thursday for the second time as Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) attempted to put the GOP on the defensive on a core campaign issue ahead of 2024.

The bill failed 43-50 as nearly every Republican joined a handful of Democrats in voting against the measure. The no votes included two senators, Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) and James Lankford (R-Okla.), who originally negotiated the deal and criticized the vote as political gamemanship.
