I could not possibly explain the political and partisan complexities behind Speaker Mike Johnson’s reasoning behind his decision not to allow a vote on securing the border. I will leave you to watch an excellent explanation by Jake Broe, who has broken down the truth into more easily understandable segments.

Allowing a vote on securing the border is a no-brainer to us here in the UK and for many in the USA. Preventing the influx of fentanyl at America’s southwest border will save lives. As this proposed deal is tied to funding for Ukraine, lives will be saved there, too.
Due to indictments against former President Donald Trump, he has been barred from primary ballots by Colorado and Maine, and other states are considering such a ban. Additionally, Trump is pressuring Republicans (including Speaker Mike Johnson) not to allow a vote on securing the border.
So why do so many Republicans still support Trump even though courts have indicted him?
Because he may be a rogue in many Republican’s eyes, but he is their rogue.
