House Passes Bill to Defund Obama’s Illegal Immigration Policies


Today the House passed a bill that will block funding for President Obama’s illegal immigration orders. The measure passed in a 236-191 vote with 10 Republicans voting against it.

Some of the Republican’s who voted against it are: Carlos Curbelo (FL), Justin Amash (MI), Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL), Robert Dold (IL), Jeff Denham (CA), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL), Mike Coffman (CO), David Valadao (CA), Thomas Massie (KY).
