WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate on Thursday approved $19.1 billion in aid to help Americans rebound from a string of natural disasters, but without the extra funds to address a migrant surge at the border that President Donald Trump had requested.
The Republican-majority Senate approved the measure 85-8. Democrats, who have a majority in the House of Representatives, said a vote could soon follow in that chamber. The Republican president supports the legislation, lawmakers from his party said.
