Missouri Senator-Josh Hawley

Congress has passed a 4.6 billion dollar emergency funding bill that would help care for the immigrants at the U.S. – Mexico border.

A report from Missourinet says during a committee hearing this week about border funding, Missouri Republican U.S. Senator Josh Hawley said the behavior of Congress is pathetic.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in order to hurry resources to immigrant children, she said her chamber would reluctantly pass the Senate bill.

The legislation heads to the president, who has signaled that he plans to sign off on the largely humanitarian aid plan.
