Showdown looms. Action needed.

The Senate is expected to vote in the next 24-48 hours on a $4.5 billion emergency funding package to help The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deal with the massive humanitarian crisis unfolding on our southern border.   

Many Democrats are vowing to derail any bill that gives President Trump a perceived "win" regarding his administration's border and immigration policies.

Tuesday night, following intense negotiations between House Speaker 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.

Senate Majority Leader McConnell said of the House bill, "It's a go-nowhere proposal filled with poison pill riders which the president has indicated he would veto."

"The idea here is to get a (presidential) signature, so I think once we can get that out of the Senate, hopefully on a vote similar to the one in the Appropriations Committee, I'm hoping that the House will conclude that's the best way to get the problem solved, which can only happen with a signature."

The Senate's emergency funding bill is more closely aligned with the Trump administration's request.
