The week began with a series of tweets by President Trump declaring that — starting next week — Immigration and Customs Enforcement would deport millions of undocumented immigrants.

Just a couple of days later, the Senate Appropriations Committee voted almost unanimously, and in bipartisan fashion, for a more than $4.5 billion package that would — among other things — help fund the Health and Human Services program for caring for unaccompanied children.
