During his address, Lee proposed using the support for the Ukraine bill as leverage to enforce border security measures, a priority he believes is neglected by the current administration. He introduced and attempted to make pending seven amendments focusing on various issues, including border security enhancements, preventing U.S. aid from funding Hamas, ensuring non-citizens cannot vote in federal elections, and protecting U.S. taxpayers from funding Ukrainian bureaucrats’ salaries.

However, Lee expressed frustration that despite promises of an open amendment process, his amendments were consistently rejected by objections from Democrats. He criticized the lack of bipartisan cooperation and the dismissal of Republican efforts to influence the bill, especially concerning border security. Lee called upon his Senate colleagues who supported proceeding with the bill to reconsider their stance, highlighting that the promised amendment process was not honored and urging those with influence over Senators to advocate for opposition to closure based on the lack of an open amendment process. Lee’s speech and efforts reflect a broader concern for legislative transparency and the importance of addressing border security in conjunction with foreign aid packages.
