$4.6 billion emergency funding for detained migrants clears US Congress

Posted on by

After a brief showdown over competing emergency humanitarian aid measures to alleviate the crisis at the US southern border, the House voted on Thursday to pass the Senate’s less restrictive version of the bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluctantly pass the Senate bill,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote. “…We will do so with a Battle Cry as to how we go forward to protect children in a way that truly honors their dignity and worth,” Pelosi added.

Lawmakers are set to recess for the July 4 holiday and were aiming to get the measure enacted before they left.
