Chuck Schumer has written to his colleagues about his intention to go forward with legislative measures to the floor of the American Senate to renew efforts to fund both the war efforts of Israel and Ukraine. Senate Majority Leader informed that this could happen as early as December 4.
Chuck Schumer warned other senators that the Ukraine forces were short of support and time was against the Ukrainians. He identified the Republican demand for reforms in immigration policy, saying that it was the biggest cause for delay to the security support package.
The New York Democrat has indicated that he would be willing to go along for another week before they can arrive at a compromise deal on border security and asylum reform funding. However, he indicated that there was little time to deal with the issues on the war front and stressed that time was fast running out.
