Spending bill amnesty: Here are the Republicans who voted to gut interior enforcement…
The House and Senate passed H.J.Res. 31 on Thursday to fund roughly 25% of the federal government, including the Department of Homeland Security, through Sept. 30. In addition to allowing DHS to increase the number of low-skilled guest workers through the H-2B visa program, the bill also reduces the number of detention beds used by ICE to detain criminal aliens and recent illegal border crossers and protects sponsors of child smuggling from deportation.
The bill passed by an 83-to-16 margin in the Senate with Republicans and Democrats in equal support of the bill. The official roll call can be found here.
Eleven Republicans voted against the legislation, including Sens. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, Tim Scott of South Carolina, Marco Rubio of Florida, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Ted Cruz of Texas, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Mike Braun of Indiana, and Joshua Hawley of Missouri.
