House Passes a 4.5 Billion Dollar Immigration Bill

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The House of Representatives passed a 4.5 billion dollar immigration bill that includes provisions for migrant children that are in U.S. custody.

While considered a win for speaker Nancy Pelosi, other democrats are not as confident. Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar were among the four democrats who voted against the bill. They are saying they don’t want to fund agencies that carry out President Trump’s policies. The White House says it “strongly opposes” the bill and is threatening a veto.

All this while the Senate advanced a bi-partisan bill last week that sets aside nearly 4.6 billion for the border crisis.

Yesterday an official with the Customs and Border Protection says more than 100 children were moved to a border station in Clint, Texas, which independent monitors say has “unconscionable conditions.”
