Congressional House Votes in Favor of Defunding Deferred Action Immigration Program

House voted in favor of recinding the recent Deferred action program benefiting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants. The vote shows a sharp divide in Congress as to immigration matters. A strong contingency of Republican representatives continue to vote against immigration reform. At this point it is unclear if the votes are more in resistance to the Deferred Action program being enacted by executive order and thereby usurping Congress’s authority. Probably the biggest news to be taken from this vote is that it is far from certain that comprehensive immigration reform will pass despite the millions of hopeful immigrants praying and hoping for a change. At the end of the day, the Houses’ vote is symbolic only because the senate would not ratify the vote and the President would surely veto it if they did.
