Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) has halted a $ 19 billion relief rate in the House of Representatives until Parliament recovers in early June.
Here's what we know
The support includes $ 3 billion for farmers, $ 909 million in food aid and other aid to Puerto Rico, and $ 3 billion was allocated to "reconstruction of our military bases and Coast Guard facilities. "
Following the bill, the overwhelming Senate passed with a vote of 85-8 on Thursday, President Donald Trump tweeted that the bill had its "overall approval." Before the bill was adopted, all money allocated to border security was removed from it.
Congress leaders tried to get it adopted unanimously from the members present Friday morning. According to the congressional rules, if a single member objects to this, the bill is blocked until the rest of the Parliament returns.
Roy said the bill should include funding for Trump's border policies, and the federal government was also holding up much debt. He told his congressional colleagues that the United States needed to "have a responsive and fiscal-responsive approach to helping people who do damage in the wake of natural disasters" but that he did not want to "let the swamp continue to pledge our children's future and grandchildren . "
He called it the kind of" spongy practice "that" the Texans chose to resist. "
"The people, especially in Texas, but people are generally tired of the swamp," Roy told the media after the stall bill "and it is a very swampy thing to do – voting on a Friday course for Memorial Day weekend and after we have taken up when we could have done our work yesterday when we had 435 members of the congress who were supposed to be here and to vote. "
Representative of Parliament Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Has called Roy's decision to "sabotage".
