Senate leaders praise border security deal


Senate leaders spoke on the floor Tuesday morning praising the border security tentative deal announced late Monday by a bipartisan group of negotiators from both chambers.

“As we speak, our colleagues are working hard to produce a legislative text,” Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “I look forward to reviewing the text as soon as possible.”

“The tentative agreement represents a path forward for our country, away from another round of fraught negotiations,” Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said.
