Pelosi signs border bill, says will not stand for an 'end-run around Congress'

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday (February 14) approved a bipartisan border security bill aimed at averting a government shutdown and sent it to President Donald Trump, including new barriers for part of the U.S.-Mexico border but not the $5.7 billion he sought.

The Democratic-run House backed the measure, a spending bill providing over $300 billion for several government departments and agencies, 300 to 128.

It passed the Senate earlier on Thursday.

The White House has said Trump will sign it into law, but will also attempt to use unilateral powers to obtain money for a wall.

At the bill signing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said "Three hundred votes on the floor of the House.

It was quite a remarkable show and for my own part, I just want to thank the conferees for having us honor our oath of office to protect our country by securing our border and protecting our values, and where we go from here will be for us all to honor the Constitution, especially Article 1, especially the system of checks and balances."
