US House votes to curb Trump powers to start Iran war

US House votes to curb Trump powers to start Iran war

House Democrats also approved amendments to block Trump's emergency arms sales to Saudi Arabia and end USA support for the Saudi-UAE war in Yemen.

A committee Republican aide distributed a statement calling the report "political - not serious oversight" - and said it ignored that almost all the children were released to a parent or a sponsor.

Also raising political temperatures are Trump-ordered nationwide raids targeting people in the USA illegally expected to start this weekend, according to administration officials and immigrant activists.

The compromise bill must then be signed into law by Trump. Family separations were hard on agents as well as migrants, she said. Unknown numbers of others were also separated. Hundreds were held longer than previously revealed, including 25 kept over a year, and at least 30 remain apart from their parents.

The House proposal - which was added to a sweeping $733 billion defense bill by a vote of 251-to-170 - would bar the Trump administration from using any federal funds for military force "in or against" the Islamic Republic, unless the president receives explicit congressional approval for a strike.

On his radio program Thursday, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh offered his take on the rapidly escalating quarrel between far-left freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the leader of the House Democrats, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). "It's not everything they want but we need to pass it to say, 'This is our position, ' to move the ball in the direction we want".

"It's a bill that I think Democrats should be happy with", said Adam Smith, the Democratic chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

The worst thing about touring immigrant detention facilities at the border was seeing cruelty occur under the American flags hung everywhere, Rep.

At the hearing, the NY freshman along with Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Ayana Pressley (N.Y.) gave testimony regarding their recent trip to the border.

It's AOC vs Pelosi and Trump!

Tlaib added, "It's a risky ideology that rules our nation right now".

Ocasio-Cortez said Wednesday that Speaker Pelosi was not only "outright disrespectful" to the new lawmakers, but suggested the criticism was racist.

As if in counterpoint to Democrats' testimony, Vice President Mike Pence and eight GOP lawmakers toured a border station Friday in Donna, Texas, a vast collection of air-conditioned, interconnected tents built in May to temporarily handle 1,000 migrants and now holding 800. "I could care less". That's $17 billion less than the White House and Republicans were seeking.

However, when asked if she believes Pelosi holds racist views, Ocasio-Cortez resolutely denied it, saying: "No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not".

Roy said by not toughening immigration laws, Democrats have "created the very magnet" that attracts migrants to the US and said the House "cowardly sits in the corner, doing nothing" to address the problems that result.

CNN has reached out to the departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services for comment.

Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas), who represents a district on the border with Mexico, also testified at the hearing.

Other Republicans who appeared were Arizona Reps.
