CR Liberty Score Update

This vote was on compromise legislation to give amnesty to 1.8 million illegal immigrants with a path to U.S. citizenship in exchange for $25 billion to fund a wall and other border security measures.

House Republican leadership offered the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act as an alternative immigration compromise to the more conservative bill from Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. The leadership bill offered an amnesty incentive that would have rewarded foreigners who break U.S. immigration law with the rights of citizenship. Additionally, the legislation failed to keep key promises from President Donald Trump to fully end chain migration and reform our immigration system into a merit-based system.

This bill would have codified President Barack Obama’s illegal DACA amnesty executive order and expanded that amnesty beyond what even a Democratic administration sought to do. The legislation also failed to limit judicial involvement in immigration, permitting rogue leftist judges to continue to undermine American sovereignty without limits imposed by Congress.

The House of Representatives voted to reject the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018 on June 27, 2018, at 1:50 p.m. in a roll call vote of 121 – 301.
