The House on Friday didn’t pass the Senate-passed $1 9 billion bill delivering crisis aid financing to portions of their United States struck by hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes, and wildfires after a Republican lawmaker objected.

The House strove to pass the step during a pro forma session with unanimous consent since most lawmakers had left for a week-long Memorial Day recess the day just before.

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, cried, saying the charge didn’t deal with the humanitarian crisis in the U.S.-Mexico border and it was not paid.

“Our nation is strong enough, and compassionate enough, to have a more reactive and fiscally responsive way to aid those who hurt in the wake of natural disasters,” he said.
