[Ed. – You already know without asking that the freshman whiners-in-chief voted against it — just as they voted against the rider-laden bill passed earlier by the House Democrats.  The “moderate” Democrats, meanwhile, know what awaits them in their home districts during the 4th of July break if they don’t provide some relief for conditions at the border facilities.  Their constituents do NOT agree that it’s a moral atrocity to enforce the U.S. border.]

The House on Thursday passed a bipartisan Senate bill that would address the crisis at the southern border, dealing a major blow to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and progressives who had pushed for stronger protections for migrant children.

Ninety-five Democrats opposed the measure in a 305-102 vote. The legislation now heads to the White House, where President Trump is expected to sign the $4.6 billion package into law. …

[M]oderate Democrats in groups like the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus and the Blue Dog Coalition put pressure on Pelosi to take up the Senate bill immediately.
