US House votes to curb Donald Trump's powers to start Iran war

AOC disavows her earlier suggestion Pelosi is racist

Ocasio-Cortez later clarified that she "absolutely" did not believe Pelosi was being racist, and the speaker said Thursday: "We respect the value of every member of our caucus". Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., The Hill reported.

The Trump administration has promised to veto the House measure.

A Democratic House committee chairman says the Trump administration's now-abandoned policy of separating migrant children from their families as they crossed the U.S. -Mexico border was a tactic to discourage future immigrants but could damage the children for their entire lives. The hearing came as the number of families, children and other migrants entering the US from Mexico has surged above 100,000 monthly since March, overwhelming federal agencies' ability to detain them in sanitary conditions and highlighting the issue as the 2020 presidential and congressional campaigns are in their early stages.

The Democratic Party-led House approved an amendment on a broad defence bill that would prohibit funding for military operations against Iran unless they are in self-defence or approved by the Congress.

The House passed a massive annual defense spending bill Friday after some uncertainty over whether Democrats could get the bill across the finish line. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI - appeared to reach a boiling point in recent days after the speaker criticized the the congresswomen for their decision vote against a bill to send $4.5 billion in emergency aid to the nation's southern border. She criticized harsh policies "intentionally and cruelly created by a Trump administration dead set on sending a hate-filled message that those seeking refuge are not welcome in America".

But she stood by her criticism that Ocasio-Cortez and other first-term firebrands shouldn't be criticizing other House Dems on Twitter. She claimed she saw migrants drinking out of toilets, which a Border Patrol official flatly denied, and that she felt unsafe during the visit.

Hoyer, who made a similar call for unity in Wednesday's caucus meeting, declined to respond Thursday to Ocasio-Cortez's remark. They're then supposed to be transferred to government-run shelters. Hundreds were held longer than previously revealed, including 25 kept over a year, and at least 30 remain apart from their parents.

The Democrats call separating children "a deliberate, unnecessary and cruel choice" by President Donald Trump. ".immigrant.child.separations.pdf" target="_blank">report released Friday by the House Oversight Committee.

Democrats and Republicans are fighting over the treatment of the arrivals, whose numbers have surpassed 100,000 monthly.

Saikat Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff, referred to moderate Democratic groups in a tweet last month as "New Southern Democrats" who are "hell bent to do to black and brown people today what the old Southern Democrats did in the '40s". Progressive Democrats are accusing moderates and party leaders of too readily compromising with Republicans on the issue.
