The move came after the Republican-controlled chamber scrapped a vote earlier in the day on a bill to provide $659 million in emergency aid for the humanitarian crisis at the border. "We'll stay until we vote," said Republican Congressman Darrel Issa. US officials have said that almost 57,000 unaccompanied children have arrived this year from Central America, fleeing poverty and violence at home, and hoping in many instances to reunite with relatives already in the United States.
