Here is the best argument for why Republicans should vote for the bipartisan border deal:

Yes, it is imperfect, but it will never get better than this … there is zero chance they will ever pass H.R. 2, the House Republicans’ excellent border security bill.

So, the choice is not between this and H.R. 2; it’s a choice between this and nothing. Take the deal.

Here is why that argument is wrong: The bill would actually restrict the next president’s power to secure the border.
