Next week, the Senate is expected to vote on funding the Department of Homeland Security. It will consider the bill passed by the House of Representatives that funds the department while defunding President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty and winding down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The Senate must follow the House’s lead.
Democrats in the Senate signed a letter to Republican Leader Mitch McConnell asking him to only consider a “clean” DHS bill, meaning they want to remove the provisions defunding amnesty. In order for the Senate to take up a bill, they first vote on the “Motion to Proceed” to the bill. It is being reported that the Democrats will try to defeat that motion.
Call your Senators today. Tell them you want a vote on the House-passed DHS bill that defunds President Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional amnesties.

Message to U.S. Senators:
Defund President Obama’s executive amnesty
We urge you to support the House of Representatives in defunding President Obama’s executive amnesty. Funding for the Department of Homeland Security should not enable the president to willfully undermine our immigration laws.
The House bill is a good bill. It blocks funding for President Obama’s illegal amnesty announced last November and also prevents new applications to his illegal DACA program.
In a time where millions are concerned about their jobs and wages, the government should focus on improving conditions for working Americans instead of aiding the illegal immigrants who compete with them.
Congress should stand up for the rule of law by funding DHS and blocking funding for illegal amnesties. Failing to defund amnesty gives President Obama the green light to write his own laws, instead of enforcing the laws Congress passes.
