As the House wrapped up debate on the disaster relief bill, Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Kay Granger (R-Texas) offered a motion to recommit that would add $2.88 billion to the bill to care for unaccompanied children at the U.S.-Mexico border. The Trump administration had requested money for the unaccompanied children at the border. Appropriations Subcommittee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) then gave a fiery speech against the motion, saying Congress needs more information on what exactly the administration wants to do with the money. She also said it does not belong in a disaster relief bill and that when her subcommittee wanted to add money for child programs, Republicans opposed it.

Representative Cindy Axne (D-IA) then spoke about why her district needs disaster relief and called the Republican motion to recommit “playing partisan politics with people’s lives.” close
