“Understand what we’re up against in the White House. The president would love for this bill to go down today,” Pelosi said during a closed-door caucus meeting Tuesday, according to a senior Democratic aide. 

“A vote against this bill is a vote for Donald Trump and his inhumane, outside-the-circle of civilized attitude toward the children."

In a statement, Omar explained her reason for voting no.

“Throwing more money at the very organizations committing human rights abuses—and the very Administration directing these human rights abuses—is not a solution," she said. "This is a humanitarian crisis—a humanitarian crisis inflicted by our own leadership. It's also a refugee crisis fueled by state violence, corruption, and impunity in the Northern Triangle--one that this Administration has only fueled through mass deportation and slashing aid.

Republicans blasted Democratic leadership for bringing the bill to the floor, arguing they are playing politics during a time of crisis and should have brought legislation that passed out of committee in the Senate with strong bipartisan support up for a vote.
