A new ad from the GOP has put the spotlight on an effort to prevent the President from moving forward with his controversial border wall, a proposal that was the subject of bipartisan opposition last year.
The ad, called “Bipartisan Resistance,” says Democrats and Republicans in Congress would be able to make a deal to keep Trump from building the wall, but only if the border security spending bill that’s passed would be “extended.”
It’s part of a broader push to prevent Trump from putting a border wall on the border, a strategy that would cost billions of dollars and increase tensions with Mexico.
Trump is already trying to pass his wall bill in the House but the measure has been stalled in the Senate.
The new ad comes a day after Trump announced that he would not attend a joint session of Congress for the first time since taking office, citing the political pressures.
Democrats in Congress have also been pushing to pass a border security bill.
The bill passed the House last week, but has not yet been approved by the Senate, which is controlled by Republicans.
Republicans in the White House have been warning that the bill could result in millions of jobs lost in the United States.
The Trump administration has also said the wall is necessary to stop illegal immigration.
