Tlaib's remarks came hours after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., voiced her frustration with the approach of House Democratic leaders on Saturday night in a series of tweets.
Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dismissed an attack from right-wing commentator Newt Gingrich, who accused her of "lying" about human rights abuses occurring at migrant detention centers near the southern border.
During an April interview with CBS's "60 Minutes", Pelosi said that the faction of leadership-clashing lawmakers was "like five people" as she defended her record as a liberal leader.
Ocasio-Cortez argued that Democrats can not trust the Trump administration not to divert money for humanitarian aid toward immigration enforcement - a comment that comes after the President acknowledged that ICE raids would begin after the Fourth of July.
"What I would like to see in a presidential candidate is one that has a coherent worldview and logic from which all these policy proposals are coming forward", Ocasio-Cortez told CNN. Once the House passes its bill, the two chambers must come up with a compromise bill, which must pass both before being sent to the White House for Trump to sign into law or veto. Asked by CBS' Lesley Stahl about AOC and her cadre, the speaker replied drolly: "That's like five people".
"I take responsibility", Pelosi said, according to the source.
Kamalvandi: Tehran's next option is 20% uranium enrichment
Mr Trump's Iran sanctions have cut the state of from the U.S. financial system and made them unable to trade in USA dollars. However, they say there is little they can do to ensure the vital oil sales Iran seeks. "That has caused all the problems".
'Ocasio-Cortez is acting cowardly and should be ashamed of her attempts to silence me...' Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers' arms and threw them in cages? "It's just, why? The idea that millions of people we represent matter less or don't matter is a notion I disagree with". She said it was fine that she was the target of scrutiny after the House reluctantly passed a Senate version of the bill instead of pushing even further for added restrictions that Democrats said would mandate better care for migrants and children housed in the facilities.
The discretionary spending talks have been stuck over House Democrats' insistence on a nondefense number that is over $100 billion more than the White House wants.
Still, four first-term House Democratic women with high profiles - Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rep. Ayanna Pressley of MA - made a decision to vote against the measure, encouraged by liberal activists and migrant advocacy groups.
"The problem is the lack of political will", Sanders said on a call with Ocasio-Cortez, Blumenauer and climate activists. If the courts ruled POTUS can't block people on Twitter, why would @AOC think she can get away with silencing her critics?

Rightwing rabble-rousers are now taking that ruling and using it to challenge Democrats such as Ocasio-Cortez. However, as The Guardian's Emily Holden stated in her report on the resolution, "Advocates say similar efforts in Canada and the United Kingdom have served as a leverage point, highlighting the hypocrisy between the government position that the situation is an emergency and individual decisions that would exacerbate the problem".
