"This bill totals $4.5 billion for basic human needs and better care. It includes $200 million for an integrated, multi-agency processing center pilot program with non-profits as well as $60 million to assist local entities and non-profits serving the influx of migrants. The President’s cruel immigration policies that tear apart families and terrorize communities demand the stringent safeguards in this bill to ensure these funds are used for humanitarian needs only – not for immigration raids, not detention beds, not a border wall."
