D.C. scramble

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has warned that the Office of Refugee Resettlement, operated by HHS, could run out of funds in weeks unless Congress approves the emergency funding they need to deal with the massive humanitarian crisis unfolding on our southern border. Last month, President Trump requested $4.5 billion in emergency funding to help fund HHS and ICE in dealing with the crisis.

Democrats are refusing to give President Trump a "win" on anything border related. 

Last night, following intense negotiations between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the House Progressive and Hispanic caucuses, lawmakers approved a funding bill 230-195 that the White House says is DOA.

"Because this bill does not provide adequate funding to meet the current crisis, and because it contains partisan provisions designed to hamstring the Administration’s border enforcement efforts, the Administration opposes its passage,” the White House statement said.

Today, all eyes are on the Senate where a funding bill approved earlier by the Appropriations Committee is expected to come to the floor for a full Senate vote. The Senate's emergency funding bill is more closely aligned with the Trump administration's request.

Again, Democrats are being pressured to reject any measure that appears to give President Trump the resemblance of a "win" when it comes to the administration's policies on border security and immigration enforcement. 

Grassfire is calling for our team members to make our voices heard today ahead of the Senate vote.
