Photo of Migrants Shocks, but Congress Stalls on Border Aid

本文 A photograph of a migrant father and his 23-month-old daughter lying face down on the muddy bank of the Rio Grande added an emotional charge on Wednesday to the immigration policy debate consuming Washington.

The image of the tiny girl, tucked into her father’s shirt, her right arm draped around his neck, seemed to crystallize the human tragedy playing out at the border, and it was everywhere: on cable channels, the internet, where the usual political warfare was for a moment tempered by sadness, and on the Senate floor, where the chamber’s top Democrat forced colleagues to confront a blown-up copy of the photo.

“President Trump, I want you to look at this photo,” said the minority leader, Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. “These are not drug dealers or vagrants or criminals; they are people simply fleeing a horrible situation.”

But the picture did little to narrow the partisan divide over immigration policy, or even a more immediate dispute in Congress over a package of humanitarian aid that Mr. Trump has requested to fund strapped immigration agencies dealing with a crush of migrants.
