US House of Representatives passes $4.5 bn emergency funding bill to tackle migrant crisis, Speaker Nancy Pelosi says 'protecting families'

The House passed with relative ease on Tuesday a $4.5 billion emergency border aid package to care for thousands of migrant families and unaccompanied children detained after crossing the US-Mexico border. The bill passed along party lines after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quelled a mini-revolt by progressives and Hispanic lawmakers who sought significant changes to the legislation. 'We are ensuring that children have food, clothing, sanitary items, shelter and medical care', said Pelosi said in a subsequent floor speech.
