(FamilyConservationPAC.com) – According to Bloomberg on Tuesday, the Biden administration intends to request $100 billion in aid for Israel and Ukraine from Congress.
According to the outlet:
“President Joe Biden is considering a supplemental request of approximately $100 billion that would include defense assistance for Israel and Ukraine alongside border security funding and aid to nations in the Indo-Pacific, including Taiwan, according to people familiar with the matter.
Biden has pledged support for Israel in the wake of the deadly attack earlier this month by Hamas, a group designated by the U.S. and E.U. as a terrorist organization. Aid for Israel enjoys broad bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress.”
Following the attack on Israel by Hamas, there has been conjecture that the administration may attempt to sever financing for Israel and Ukraine after House Republicans successfully removed funds for Ukraine from a short-term government funding package.
Compared to the $100 billion it now requests to pay Taiwan and both contingencies, that proposal was only $24 billion.

To win over Republicans, funds for border security would also be included in the agreement.
A representative for the conservative Heritage Foundation, Cody Sargent, posted:
“This “border security” funding is a trap. It would give Biden more money to speed up his conveyor belt of illegal immigrants into the country — not turn off the flow.
No conservative can support border funding without policy change.”

The package’s specifics are finalized, but Bloomberg reports it will likely span the full fiscal year.
Reporter Andrew Desiderio of Punchbowl News stated on X that the money would be allocated for a “full year.”
Should the U.S. continue to fund Ukraine?
