WASHINGTON: The US Senate presented a compromise bill to allocate additional funding in the 2024 fiscal year (started on October 1, 2023), combining funds for tightening border controls on the southern border, assistance to Ukraine and Israel. The document was published on the website of the US legislative body.

According to the document, the additional allocations are to exceed $118 billion. Of this, the senators propose to use $60.06 billion to support Ukraine, $14.1 billion to support Israel, and $20.23 billion to ensure the security of the border with Mexico.

US President Joe Biden supported the bill proposed by the US Senate to allocate additional funding in the 2024 fiscal year (started on October 1, 2023 in the US) which combines funds to tighten border controls and support Ukraine and Israel. "Now we’ve reached an agreement on a bipartisan national security deal that includes the toughest and fairest set of border reforms in decades. "I strongly support it," Biden said in a statement, released by the White House press service.

The US President also called on legislators to quickly approve the initiative. "I urge Congress to come together and swiftly pass this bipartisan agreement. Get it to my desk so I can sign it into law immediately," he said.

​​According to the US President, tightening border control measures will make the country "safer" and its borders "more secure", while ensuring conditions for legal migration. "While this agreement doesn’t address everything I would have wanted, these reforms are essential for making our border more orderly, secure, fair, and humane," he noted.

Biden noted that the bill proposed by the Senate, if approved by the House of Representatives, would allow the United States "together with partners all around the world, to stand up for Ukraine."

"This agreement also provides Israel with what they need to protect their people and defend itself against Hamas terrorists," he stressed.

The US President called on legislators to quickly approve the initiative. "I urge Congress to come together and swiftly pass this bipartisan agreement. Get it to my desk so I can sign it into law immediately," he said.

The fate of the bill agreed upon by senators with the participation of the White House in the House of Representatives is completely unclear. Analysts do not rule out that legislators from the opposition Republican Party, who have a majority of votes in the lower house of Congress, will not support the bill in its current form.
