A GOP representative says new border legislation is the 'worst screwing in the Senate since that Dem staffer filmed his porno on Klobuchar's desk'

  • On Sunday night, the Senate released its bipartisan immigration bill.

  • GOP legislators — and a few Democrats — quickly railed against the legislation.

  • One Republican said it was the "worst screwing" in the Senate since a recently revealed sex tape.

After learning of the contents of the new border bill released Sunday evening by a group of Republican and Democratic senators, several members of Congress rejected the idea entirely, with one representative even comparing it to the recently revealed sex tape in a Senate hearing room.

The small bipartisan coalition of senators quietly met for months, tasked with crafting legislation to both reform US immigration policy and provide supplemental aid to Ukraine, but it may all be for naught after former President Donald Trump and GOP legislators attempted to sabotage its passage in recent weeks.

Following the bill's release, Republican Rep. Mike Collins expressed his disappointment in a post on X.

"This bill is the worst screwing in the Senate since that Dem staffer filmed his porno on Klobuchar's desk," Collins wrote, comparing it to a recently unearthed video from December 2018 that shows a former Senate staffer having sex with another man where the senator from Minnesota typically sits.

Collins is among many in the Republican caucus who've spoken out against the bill. A couple of Democrats have also joined the fray: California Sen. Alex Padilla and embattled New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez.

If passed, the nearly 300-page border bill would give the Department of Homeland Security the power to close down the border and halt further movement into the country if the average of immigrants exceeds certain numbers.

The bill would also allow the Secretary of Homeland Security "to summarily remove from and prohibit" any undocumented immigrant when given "emergency authority."

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise promised Sunday evening the legislation would never even receive a vote on the House floor. And Speaker of the House Mike Johnson said, "If this bill reaches the House, it will be dead on arrival."
