WATCH: House GOP leaders say Democrats are 'playing politics' with border funding
House Republicans criticized Democrats on Tuesday, June 25, for a bill that would provide $4.5 billion in additional aid for migrants being detained near the U.S.-Mexico border. GOP leaders said Democrats have filled the bill with "poison pills" that place unreasonable restrictions on immigration enforcement. Democrats "would rather launch political attacks than actually do something to help those children at the border," said Rep. Liz Cheney, the Republican Conference chair, who was joined by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and Rep. Mike Rogers, the ranking member on the House Homeland Security committee.
