WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Wednesday released the following statement after Senate Republicans blocked passage of the national security supplemental, which included aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, funding for border security, and support for the Nonprofit Security Grant Program:

“Republicans are playing a dangerous game with the fate of the free world. It's so reckless that they have decided to tie the future of Ukraine and U.S. support for Israel to their hardline demands to shut down the border. The stakes could not be higher, and so I am willing to continue working to find an actual compromise. But it’s time for Republicans to stop playing politics, ditch their unserious proposals, and come to the table with reasonable expectations.”
