HR 240 (Roll Call 109) Funding Obama's Executive Action on Immigration
This bill funds the Department of Homeland Security for Fiscal Year 2016. It removes provisions that prohibit using funds to implement President Obama’s executive actions granting amnesty to some illegal immigrants. It also removes provisions that prohibit granting any federal benefits to any illegal immigrants as a direct result of implementing amnesty. ACU opposed funding Obama’s executive actions, which were unconstitutional, and opposed this bill. The House passed the bill on March 3, 2015 by a vote of 257-167.
