U.S. House Democrats Give Up Fight Over Migrant Safeguards In Border Bill

According to a report by Reuters, Democratic House leaders backed down to President Donald Trump, passing a 4.6 billion-dollar aid package to address a migrant surge at the US Mexico border without additional protections for migrant children.

Reuters reports that the Republican-led Senate, along with moderate Democrats, insisted on hurrying the emergency bill through, without further debating demands for greater migrant safeguards and reduced immigration enforcement spending.
