Cornyn expects U.S. House to pass 'skinnied-down' border bill

Senator Cornyn talks to reporters on immigration crisis in Texas in WashingtonBy John Whitesides WASHINGTON (Reuters) – John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Republican in the U.S. Senate, said on Sunday he expected the House of Representatives to pass a “skinnied-down” emergency funding bill this week to deal with a surge of migrant children at the southwestern U.S. border. The Republican-controlled House is debating how much to pare from President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion supplemental request, although any House compromise is likely to face opposition in the Democratic-controlled Senate before lawmakers try to begin their scheduled summer break at the end of the week. “Fortunately it sounds like the House of Representatives is going to move a piece of legislation this week, which would actually offer a solution,” Cornyn said on ABC’s “This Week”. He also said he expected the House to incorporate a plan he has proposed with Democratic Representative Henry Cuellar of Texas to try to speed up deportation of Central American child migrants.
