A disturbing photo showing two migrants who drowned traveling to the US sparked a day of reaction and debate in Washington and around the country.
Our live coverage is ending, but here's what you need to know:
- The crisis at the border: A shocking picture taken at the US-Mexico border showed a father and his daughter lying face down in the Rio Grande. They left El Salvador with family on April 3rd seeking a better life in Dallas, Texas, according to family members.
- Disagreement in Congress: The House and Senate passed two versions of a border funding bill. They are expected to meet in a conference committee to reconcile the bills — but Republican Senate leaders have said they won't negotiate with House Democrats, essentially daring the House to take or leave the Senate bill.
- About the two bills: The House bill includes some amendments that are not in the Senate bill. This includes stronger requirements for the care of unaccompanied minor children, translation services, time limits for how long immigrant children can be detained and resources that would help migrants navigate the court system.
