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. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly said that Democrats were temporarily giving up their fight over changes to the measure, which had already passed the Senate.
