The chairman of the House committee that controls spending says President Barack Obama's $3.7 billion emergency request for the border crisis is too much money and the House won't approve it.

Rep. Hal Rogers, chairman of the Appropriations Committee, says there are some immediate needs to be met with the crisis of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children arriving at the border from Central America.

But the Kentucky Republican says there's not a need for the entire sum Obama is seeking, and that some of what the president is requesting is already being handled in Congress' regular spending bills.

Rogers' comments to reporters Friday underscore the challenges ahead as Obama pushes Congress to approve the money.
