Mitch McConnell In Trouble (Video) 

(5MinNewsBreak.com) – In big-time trouble for the GOP Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, a fellow Republican senator, Ted Cruz, has urged him to resign after the Border Bill McConnell negotiated with the Democrats has been blasted for solidifying the illegal immigrant invasion through the Southern Border.

Cruz (R-TX) has publicly called for Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), also a Republican, to step down from his leadership role.

“I think it is,” Cruz said when questioned by reporters about whether it was time for McConnell to go.

Cruz, who has long been critical of McConnell, was among ten Republican senators who did not support McConnell’s bid to be reelected as the Senate minority leader in November 2022.

He accused McConnell of remaining in the Senate too long and playing a central role in negotiating the border deal with the Democrats.

This same stance is shared by Senators Rick Scott, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson, J.D. Vance, Roger Marshall, and Eric Schmitt.

“I think a Republican leader should actually lead this conference and should advance the priorities of Republicans,” Cruz told reports.

Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma, selected by McConnell, led the bipartisan negotiations on the border deal, which was made public on Sunday.

The deal, linking border security improvements to US military aid for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, has faced criticism from many Republicans.

On the other hand, McConnell and other supporters claim the bill will halt the catch-and-release policy and mandate closure of the border if immigration exceeds certain thresholds.

However, critics believe the bill capitulates to the Biden administration and the Democrats by failing to use existing executive powers to secure the border.

During a press conference on Tuesday, Cruz criticized the Senate’s border agreement as being “designed to lose” and favorable to Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

House Republican leaders have dismissed the agreement, labeling it “DEAD on arrival in the House.”

Conversely, President Biden attributed the strong opposition from Republicans to the influence of former president Donald Trump. He argued that Trump’s political calculations were obstructing the bill’s progress.

After the 2022 election, in which Republicans lost a Senate seat in Pennsylvania and only narrowly secured a majority in the House, Cruz called for Senate Republicans to choose a new leader instead of McConnell.
