Congress unlikely to reach deal on Trump border bill before break

BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 06/23/19 06:00 AM EDT

President Trump's request for more border funding is running into another stumbling block on Capitol Hill.

The administrationís $4.5 billion spending request got a shot in the arm earlier this month when leadership in both chambers said they wanted to get a bill to the presidentís desk before the July 4th recess.

But lawmakers appear all but guaranteed to miss that deadline, with the House and Senate set to take up dueling bills. Congress is expected to start leaving town Thursday for the one-week recess and return in early July.

The two bills largely align on the amount of funding, but differ on a number of key provisions, such as funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Defense Department.

1. They weren't able to get anything done when the GOP had both Houses of Congress

Time for Trumpy to stop the lame excuses.
