US House Passes $733-Billion Defense Policy Bill After Trump Threatens Veto

"Ocasio-Cortez has enormous amounts of money behind her".

As if in counterpoint to Democrats' testimony, Pence and eight GOP lawmakers toured a border station Friday in Donna, Texas, a vast collection of air-conditioned, interconnected tents built in May to temporarily handle 1,000 migrants and now holding 800. But they didn't have any following.

They also voted in favor of suspending for one year the sale of air-to-ground munitions to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, one of several efforts in the bill to deny weapons and limit US support for Saudi-led military operations in Yemen's civil war.

Ocasio-Cortez fired back at Pelosi, first in a series of tweets and then in an interview with the Washington Post, in which she called attention to the "singling out" of the young, progressive congresswomen of color. "And wielding the power to shift it is how we actually achieve meaningful change in this country".

Ocasio-Cortez said Wednesday that Pelosi has been "outright disrespectful" for criticizing women of color in her repeated attempts to rein in progressive members of her caucus.

"If one-half of the things they're saying about her are true, she shouldn't even be in office", Trump said.

Four Democratic freshmen including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reported seeing horrid conditions at detention centers during a recent visit and are testifying, as are four border state Republicans.

I think we took a lot of what happened past year into account in kind of shaping this roster and shaping our goals for the season. Danny Green just told reporters on a conference call that he believes it was between the Clippers and Raptors for Kawhi Leonard .

"In my world, what I believe is the real world, the crisis has been mounting for years, and people like me have sounded the alarm for years over and over and over again", she said. "Diversity is our strength".

Pelosi appeared to be trying to put the dispute behind her.

"I agree with the speaker: four people, four votes", Clay said Thursday.

Ocasio-Cortez earlier claimed that there are only 12 years left to fix climate change.

Some of his colleagues also publicly came to the speaker's defense.

Friday's final vote, 220-197, was a crucial victory for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after liberal Democrats revolted late last month over being forced to accept a Senate-negotiated border spending bill that omitted their key demands. "To me, with the freshman women, in general, it seems like she's been supportive", Kelly said.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., was near tears as she displayed a picture she said was of a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl - the same age as her son - who died in USA custody.

"God, it totally resonates with me, absolutely", she told Politico. "It's something that I don't think we've ever seen, at least in modern times, being played out in front of us with the divisions that exist within their party".
