We’d heard earlier in the day that the Senate has overwhelmingly passed a $4.5 billion bipartisan plan to address the crisis at the border, despite the absence of some senators who were busy getting ready for Wednesday night’s debate in Miami.
The Senate has has now approved its bipartisan border supplemental plan. The measure needed 60 yeas.
The vote was 84-8.

This is a good bipartisan compromise that actually tries to address the problems we are seeing. I hope House members who actually care about the situation at the border, and don’t just want to use it for partisan gain, move quickly to support it. https://t.co/t4ytqWXRA3

Yeah, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen, according to the Washington Times:

House Democrats cannot accept the bipartisan border crisis compromise bill the Senate passed Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, and will demand changes to limit how long children can be held in some facilities.
Mrs. Pelosi also said Democrats will insist on more money to pay the communities that illegal immigrant families are being dumped into, and will demand a new method of processing migrants when they arrive at the border “which is culturally, linguistically and religiously appropriate.”
“For the children, we must do the best we can,” Mrs. Pelosi said.
So much like the Wayfair employees who walked off the job, it’s better to do nothing if it’s not “the best we can” — something we’re pretty sure Pelosi and her caucus have no clue about. What is the House Democrats’ plan that’s better than what Senate Democrats voted to pass?
BREAKING: Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rejected the bipartisan border bill that the Senate passed 84-8.https://t.co/uUhmSxd1NK

@SpeakerPelosi now owns this “manufactured crisis” The #Democrats have no intention on collaboration to deal with USA 🇺🇸 issues. It’s shameful, disgraceful and costing lives. #IllegalImmigration #ManufacturedCrisis

I’m sure she’ll blame trump. If she hasn’t already.

@SpeakerPelosi Really Nancy?

You knew she would. Probably didn’t even read the highlights.

She is a disgrace to America.

Then she must publicly announce no children should try to come over the border or they will all be sent back.
She can repeat #Obama words from his statement in 2014. Easy.

I found it interesting that the House version, passed at $4.5 billion, was ironically the number Trump wanted for the wall to protect US citizens… 😡
— John (@john_jjsjr) June 27, 2019
The reality is AOC didn’t approve of the bill.
— carole (@dagnon_carole) June 27, 2019
Probably. A dime might have been allocated to ICE or something.
The humanitarian crisis at border is now 100% owned by Nancy Pelosi and house democrats. Pathetic
— Deplorable_EE (@deplorable_EE) June 27, 2019
So what’s new. Our Congress won’t do anything about immigration and the Dems need the crap going on at the border to blame on Trump. 100,000 a month coming into the country.

Wasn't Nancy just complaining about the Senate not bringing up her bills?

Nancy and the Demonuts won't accept anything less than total amnesty and immediate release into the U.S. population.
