Heritage Action to Key Vote Blank Check for Amnesty
Next week, the Republican-controlled House is planning to vote on a government spending bill. The so-called cromnibus, as currently described, would not block the implementation of President Obama’s recently announced changes to our nation’s immigration laws. Those changes include granting quasi-legal status, work permits and Social Security numbers to those who are in the country illegally. Heritage Action will key vote against the bill unless it contains legislative language that stops the implementation of the President’s unlawful amnesty program. As Heritage Action’s chief executive officer Michael A. Needham said earlier this week, “The fight is now, not next year. Americans expect real action, not a show vote.”
Additionally, Heritage Action will not score in favor of the bill (H.R. 5759) offered by Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) 83% because it is purely symbolic.
