Reid: There is a ‘Crisis’ at Southern Border

Posted July 8, 2014 at 3:19pm

At his weekly news conference Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did not address any Democratic objections to the White House’s $3.7 billion emergency spending request for child migrants and wildfires, instead deferring to Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Barbara A. Mikulski.

“No one has seen any legislative language; Mikulski is going to have a hearing … Thursday. I think we’ll know more then,” Reid said. “We have to pass emergency supplemental [funding], to provide resources to deal with the crisis at the border, and we do have a crisis at the border.”
