CR Liberty Score Update

This vote was to pass the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019, a massive legislative amnesty for illegal aliens with no corresponding measures to secure the border.

Granting amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal aliens remains a top priority for House Democrats. This bill would extend amnesty to 2.5 illegal aliens who were either brought to the U.S. as minors or have been in the country on temporary protected status. It would also grant a path to U.S. citizenship and voting rights. This bill goes far beyond previous Dream Act proposals, which would have granted amnesty to an estimated 800,000 DACA recipients. The Congressional Budget Office estimates the bill will cost taxpayers $34.6 billion, and not one penny of it is spent on securing the border.

The U.S. is experiencing record, unprecedented levels of migration to our southern border. Like all amnesty legislation, this bill would act as a magnet for even more migrants come to the US, risking a dangerous journey to take advantage of the unsecured southern border. The bill does nothing to combat the violent cartels engaged in human and drug trafficking and causing human suffering. Amnesty without immigration reform and border security solves no problems. Indeed, this policy would only make the migrant crisis worse and invite Congress to pass another massive amnesty bill in the future.

The House of Representatives voted to pass the American Dream and Promise Act on June 4, 2019, at 6:44 p.m. in a roll call vote of 237 – 187.
