Rep. Kinzinger Voted Against Curtailing Executive Amnesty Because It Would Make “Our Already Broken Immigration System More Confusing And Inefficient”

USofArn –

On Friday evening the House of Representatives passed a bill authored by Tennessee congresswoman Marsha Blackburn that would keep President Obama from continuing or expanding his DACA executive amnesty program.

DACA, Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals, was an executive order issued by President Obama in the summer of 2012 that granted amnesty to up to 1 million illegal immigrants that had been brought to the United States as children by their parents.

Blackburn’s DACA bill, H.R. 5272 would prohibit the federal government from making modifications to Obama’s original amnesty granting executive order that would expand the number of illegal immigrants eligable for it, the bill would also stop any authorization of any new deferred deportations, and would prohibit those illegal aliens from being able to work within the US.

11 House Republicans would vote against the bill, however as Roll Call reports not a one of them took to the House floor to explain why they were against Blackburn’s bill which was viewed as a necessary component to the House passing any legislation to address the flood of illegal immigrants from Central America crossing into Texas in the Rio Grande Valley.
