BREAKING: Senate Passes Emergency Funding for Migrant Crisis After Rejecting Pelosi’s Version
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by NBCLOSANGELES.COM:
The Senate has approved bipartisan legislation providing $4.6 billion to care for thousands of migrants streaming into the U.S. across the Mexican border.
The measure resembles a package Democrats already pushed through the House with scant Republican support. The House bill has more constraints than the Senate version on how the Trump administration would use the money, leaving the next step unclear.
The article goes on to state the following:
Congressional leaders hope to send President Donald Trump a compromise measure before lawmakers leave town for a July 4 recess.
National Review further reports:
The Senate on Wednesday passed a $4.6 billion spending package, designed to alleviate the ongoing crisis at the southern border, just moments after rejecting a similar spending bill advanced by House Democrats that included restrictions on the funding of certain border security enforcement measures.
84-8: Senate passes its $4.6B bipartisan humanitarian assistance southern border bill. 60 votes were needed.
