NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- On this episode of Up Close, the House and the Senate doing something that rarely gets done, overwhelmingly approving the bill raising the debt ceiling and avoiding, by just a few days, a financial disaster for this country.
Even though no one was fully pleased with the bill negotiated by Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Joe Biden, could this vote break a political log jam and lead to bipartisan action on other major issues facing the country?
We talk to Democratic Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey.
Plus, why are so many suburban communities fighting efforts by New York City to move migrants to their areas?
We'll ask Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman why he's against offering sanctuary to migrants now in New York City.
