Senator Joe Manchin Says a Potential Senate Border Deal Could Come This Week

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Sunday that a potential Senate deal on the border could come this week, which could unlock additional funding for Ukraine and Israel.

“And I think our negotiators right now from our Republican and Democrat negotiators, who are really diligent doing a great job and then basically with the White House involved, committed to getting this border under control,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union. “That’s what I’m really very hopeful for and I think we’re gonna see something next week and we’ll stay there until we get it done.”

Senate negotiations to compromise on the border have been taking place for weeks. Senators signaled optimism last week that the discussions were making progress, and the upper chamber plans to return this week in hopes of reaching an agreement before the end of the year.
