WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– The House and Senate bills addressing the surge of illegal immigrants remain $2 billion apart, making it difficult for Congress to pass legislation, before the annual Congressional summer recess that begins this Friday.

The GOP-led House plans Thursday to vote on $659 million plan to help the federal government stop new migrants from coming into the country and to deal humanely with the more than 61,000 unaccompanied children and thousands more families who have entered the United States via the Texas border in the past 10 months.

The Senate, however, has authored a $2.7 billion proposal that would spend much more money than the House bill helping the federal government provide care and housing for children as well as legal counsel and judges to help determine whether they deserve refugee status or to be deported back to their home countries. — Source

Mike Pence Learned HHS Was Dumping Migrant Children in His State from the Press, Not HHS
Indiana governor Mike Pence said he first learned the federal government had placed 245 unaccompanied alien children in Indiana through media reports.

In a letter to President Obama, Pence wrote that the Department of Health and Human Services informed him that the federal government had housed hundreds of unaccompanied alien children in Indiana from January 1, 2014, to July 7, 2014, but only after reports surfaced in the media.

"While we feel deep compassion for these children, our country must secure its borders and provide for a legal and orderly immigration process," Pence wrote. "Failure to expedite the return of unaccompanied children thwarts the rule of law and will only continue to send a distorted message that illegally crossing into America is without consequence."
