The top members of the Senate Appropriations Committee have struck a deal on President Trump‘s request for more funding tied to the U.S.-Mexico border after weeks of stalemate, two aides confirmed to The Hill.
The deal — worked out between Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the top Democrat on the panel — would provide Trump more than $4.5 billion for the border funding package.
The agreement comes less than a day before the Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to mark up the border package. If senators hadn’t been able to reach a deal, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) had threatened to force a vote on a bill next week to pressure Democrats to go on the record on the Senate floor.
The Senate’s $4.5 billion package is expected to include billions in humanitarian aid for the border, including money to shore up the Department of Health and Human Services’s (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement. Senators and administration officials had warned that without more money the office would run out of funding by early next month.
Lawmakers are hoping to pass the supplemental border bill before they leave at the end of next week for the July 4th recess. But there are still hurdles, including winning over the Democrat-controlled House.
A House Dem aide said on Tuesday evening that they hadn’t yet signed on to the deal between Leahy and Shelby nor seen the details.
