Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), under pressure from progressives, is facing a standoff with Senate Republicans over a $4.5 billion package to provide resources for the influx of Central American migrants at the southern border.
House Democrats are insisting that any measure include stricter “guardrails” to ensure adequate treatment of migrants at holding facilities, putting them at odds with a Senate-passed version of the legislation.
The article goes on to state the following:
The impasse increases the risk that Congress could adjourn for the July 4 recess for more than a week without a resolution as the Office of Refugee Resettlement starts to run out of money.
Pelosi was asked if the House would take up the Senate bill, and she said, “No.”
“They passed their bill. We respect that,” Pelosi said. “We passed our bill. We’d hope they would respect that. And, there are some improvements that we think can be reconciled.”
In a tweet (see below), Politico summed up the situation: “House and Senate leaders must now decide whether to reconcile their conflicting proposals or dismiss lawmakers for a week-long recess without addressing the growing humanitarian crisis.”
Where border talks stand:
Senate passed bipartisan bill
House bill passed with more protections/restrictions, prompting Trump veto threat
Pelosi wants talks and a compromise; Senate GOP so far says no

Pelosi’s sham funding bill fails to properly equip the agencies working at our border with the tools to solve the humanitarian crisis & take care of the kids who came here without parents. The House needs to take up the bipartisan funding bill that just passed the Senate 84 to 8. pic.twitter.com/ayU1tb6iBn

Will @SpeakerPelosi bring up a bipartisan bill that just passed in the Senate 84-8 dealing with the crisis at our Southern Border? Or, will Mexico keep doing more to help than my colleagues in the House? #BorderCrisis https://t.co/oNGvOxsuZE
