US Senate falls short of Obama plan with $675 million

Friday, July 10, 2015

A key US Senate panel approved $675 million in aid to Central American countries to address economic and social conditions that have contributed to an influx of refugees into the U.S. who are fleeing violence.

The funding amounts to $125 million over current levels but is still far less than President Barack Obama's $1 billion request.
