WASHINGTON – The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of t

上海楼凤he emergency border funding bill after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from

上海楼凤品茶微信moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Maj

ority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluct上海楼凤品茶微信

antly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we

have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

上海楼凤品茶微信The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democ

ratic lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate 上海楼凤品茶微信Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.

Recent media reports of horrific conditions facing children at border det

上海楼凤品茶微信ention centers and the release of a photograph depicting a father and daughter drowned face-down in the Rio Gra

nde River near Brownsville, Texas, also created new urgency for Congress to act before the July 4 recess.

After a half-month visit to China, a team from the IM

led by Asia and Pacific Department Deputy Director Kenneth Kang, summarized that “China can play an impor

tant role and would benefit from further opening up and other structural reforms that enhance competition.”

The previously issued policy is sufficient to stabilize growth by 2020, despite the rec

ent US tariff hike, according to the fund’s report. “No additional policy easing is ne

eded, provided there are no further increases in tariffs or a significant slowdown in growth.”

Only if the trade tensions further escalate and threaten economic and financial stability, a

dditional policy easing, such as fiscal expansion, could be used to stabilize the economy, it said.
