House votes to restrain Trump on Iran amid tensions

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of Calif. meets with reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday

"WASHINGTON - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an unlikely defender: President Donald Trump".

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 USA support for Saudi-led military operations in Yemen's civil war.

The bipartisan measure was approved 251-170 with almost 30 Republicans joining almost all Democrats in support. The hearing came as the number of families, children and other migrants entering the US from Mexico has surged above 100,000 monthly since March, overwhelming federal agencies' ability to detain them in sanitary conditions and highlighting the issue as the 2020 presidential and congressional campaigns are in their early stages.

The broader measure passed 220-197 after several provisions were tacked on by Democrats regarding border and immigration policy, military spending, and carceral procedure.

"On the floor, the bill has taken a radical left turn", said Mac Thornberry, the top Republican on the House Armed Services Committee. Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) has decried the bill as "moving in a direction that does make America less safe".

It also bans the deployment of a new submarine-launched nuclear missile and blocks the Trump Administration from diverting military funds to a border wall.

"Every family I spoke to said they were being well cared for", Pence said, criticizing Democrats' "harsh rhetoric".

Chakrabarti responded to the House Democrats' Twitter handle Friday night, asking why they did not point out that he was responding to someone else who brought up Davids. The bill also provides 12 weeks of paid family leave to all federal workers. The U.K. said Thursday that three Iranian vessels had unsuccessfully tried "to impede the passage" of a British commercial vessel transiting the Strait of Hormuz, although Tehran denied it. The Senate's provides $750 billion for the Pentagon and does not include several provisions created to limit Trump's power to shift military funds for use in building the wall or to deploy troops to work on the border. "This is a manufactured crisis because there is no need for us to do this".

"When we have disagreements about tactics...we should not get personal about it", Welch said.
