President Trump’s request for $4.5 billion in emergency funding for the border is getting a much-needed jolt of momentum in Congress.
Appropriators are drafting legislation that would provide billions in humanitarian aid for the border, marking the first sign of movement on the issue since funding was yanked from a disaster aid package.
The article goes on to state the following:
While it faces plenty of hurdles ahead, the package’s chances of making it to Trump’s desk by the end of the month suddenly look more possible.
“Hopefully the House Democrats will be amenable to working with us to get that done,” said Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the No. 2 Senate Republican.
“It should have been in the last supplemental bill, it wasn’t because they objected,” he said, referring to Democrats. “They made it very difficult.”
Our border is undeniably in crisis mode. But Democrats are too busy with impeachment and investigations to care about it.
Time to start governing, Congress. Pass Trump’s request for $4.5 billion in humanitarian and border operations funding, and reform our broken asylum process. pic.twitter.com/xkyEkdusX1

Next week, the Senate Appropriations Committee will vote on badly needed funding for humanitarian and security missions on the border. We’ll do what everyone knows must be done. We’ll see if our Democratic colleagues are finally ready to put partisanship aside and get to “yes.”

When will our Democratic colleagues get serious? The humanitarian crisis at the border is in serious need of funding and resources. Democrats are busy engaging in partisan messaging, political theater, and cannot seem to get past their animosity for the President. pic.twitter.com/uBPMANU46j
