NEW: House fails to pass border security bill with Remain in Mexico policy

The GOP led House only managed to get 5 Democrats to join with Republicans.


The GOP-led House failed to pass a border security bill with a two-thirds majority vote on Saturday. The bill that would have reinstated the "Remain in Mexico" policy failed with a 215-199 vote count. 

Rep. Celeste Maloy (R-UT) announced that the bill was not passed on the floor on Saturday morning.  

"On this vote, the yeas are 215, the nays are 199. Two-thirds not being in the affirmative, the rules are not suspended, the bill is not passed,” she said.  

The vote was on an amended version of the foreign aid bill that would have increased border security. It also would have reinstated Trump's Remain in Mexico policy, according to the Daily Mail

Failure to pass the bill comes amid the ongoing border crisis under President Joe Biden, who reversed many of the Trump-era immigration policies, including Remain in Mexico, when he came into office.

According to recent polling, an overwhelming plurality of voters see the border and border security as a top issue in America and believe that Trump would do a better job at it than Biden.  

The failure to pass the bill represents another opportunity missed to bring the border crisis under more control.
