The multibillion international security package is expected to be blocked by GOP-controlled House
The Democratic-led US Senate on Tuesday passed a $95.34 billion international security assistance package that includes roughly $60 billion in aid for Ukraine, after a group of Republican lawmakers sided with their political opponents to surpass the 60-vote threshold.

Speaker Mike Johnson linked any appropriation of funds for Kiev to radical reforms at home of both the US immigration system and of security at its southern border.
