Smith Votes to Defund President’s Amnesty Actions

January 14, 2015
Press Release

Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) today voted in favor of the Homeland Security Appropriations bill which defunds the President’s attempt to bypass Congress to grant amnesty to millions who are illegally in the U.S.

“The President’s executive actions on immigration make it more difficult to fix our broken immigration system because amnesty encourages people around the world to violate our laws,” said Congressman Smith.  “As promised late last year, the House has acted to stop this unilateral power grab and now it is up to our friends in the Senate to do the same.”

H.R. 240, the FY 2015 Homeland Security Appropriations bill fully funds the Department of Homeland Security with five amendments.  These amendments would completely defund President Obama’s executive overreach on immigration to grant de facto amnesty to millions.
