July 1 (UPI) -- President Donald Trump signed a bill providing $4.6 billion in funding to the U.S.-Mexico border on Monday.
The version of the bill, which originated in the Senate, includes nearly $3 billion to provide humanitarian aid and increase security measures at the border.
"Now what we want to do is we have to do another bill for border security and all of this will go away," Trump said after signing the bill.
Prior to the Senate vote, the House passed a different version of the bill with a greater focus on protecting migrant children.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell at the time called the House bill "a go-nowhere proposal filled with poison-pill riders which the president would veto."
After the Senate bill reached the House, Pelosi said the chamber would "reluctantly" approve the measure as a way to "get resources to the children fastest."
