In a statement from the White house Monday night, the administration warned that the bill would be a Veto this week, if passed.

“After ignoring the management of a partisan bill proposed to the request for urgently needed funds to address the humanitarian crisis at the border for over a month, and despite the efforts of the house minority, the house majority has, that under funds necessary accounts and is trying to take advantage of the current crisis, by inserting the policy rules, the our country less safe,” the statement reads.
