Trifecta incoming? Fetterman says he supports Ukraine, Gaza aid AND border security measures

24 January 2024- Pennsylvania U.S. Senator John Fetterman today released the following statement on the ongoing Senate foreign aid negotiations:

“As the grim second anniversary of the Ukraine invasion approaches, it is long past time for Congress to deliver crucial aid to our allies.

“We also must deliver critical humanitarian aid to civilians in Gaza. 

“Passage of this aid would send an unequivocal statement to the world and our adversaries of who and what we stand with and for: Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, defending democracy and peace.

“We also must secure our border. The compromise undoubtedly will test the resolve of both sides of the Senate, but it is reasonable and vital that we forge one.

“My vote would be in the affirmative.”
