Biden urges Congress to pass border deal that includes aid for Ukraine and Israel


President Joe Biden urged the US Congress to unite and support an immigration bill that would also provide aid to Ukraine and Israel.

The embattled bill has already been rejected by House Republicans and is facing mounting Senate opposition.

Mr Biden blamed Donald Trump in a White House speech on Tuesday, claiming the former president would “rather weaponise this issue” than solve it.

Mr Trump and many Republicans say the bill does not go far enough.

But its supporters – including Democrats and Republicans in Congress – argue that the 370 page bill would stem the record-setting pace of undocumented immigrants at the southern US border.
