House Won’t Back $3.7 Billion for Border, Rogers Says

The U.S. House won’t support giving President Barack Obama his full $3.7 billion request to fund the response to the child migrant surge at the U.S.-Mexico border, Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers said.

“That’s too much,” Rogers, a Kentucky Republican, told reporters in Washington today. Instead, he said most of the funding request will be handled through regular U.S. spending bills.
