House Clears $694 Million Border Bill
Republicans garnered enough support late Friday to pass, 223-189, a
$694 million FY 2014 supplemental spending bill (HR 5230) to deal
with the influx of migrants at the Southern border, revising the
measure to satisfy the most conservative lawmakers. Four Republicans
joined all but one Democrat (Henry Cuellar of Texas) in opposing it.
Four Republicans voted no: Thomas
Massie of Kentucky, Stephen Fincher of Tennessee, Walter B. Jones of
North Carolina and Paul Broun of Georgia.
