FAIR Statement: March 3, 2015 | Print the PDF
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is advising all Members of Congress and staff that it opposes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appropriations bill that fails to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty and is including today’s vote in FAIR’s Voting Report. There is no such thing as a “clean” DHS funding bill, Congress either funds the amnesty or defunds it. Congress has the power of the purse to rein in the President’s unconstitutional action. By failing to defund the executive amnesty in the DHS appropriations bill, Congress is abdicating its power and disregarding the will of the American people.
