House Democrats Launch Interactive Timeline Highlighting GOP Inaction on Immigration Reform

Share This:

It’s been nearly two years since Mitt Romney was walloped by Latino voters, it’s been almost a year since House Republicans first gave Steve King a vote to deport DREAMers, we’re a month away from the one-year anniversary of the Senate passing its bipartisan immigration reform bill — and the House has taken no action to pass legislation to help the 11 million.  To highlight how much time has passed without progress from House Republicans, House Republicans today are rolling out an interactive timeline pressuring the GOP to put immigration reform on the floor.

As House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra said in a statement:

No more excuses. No more flip-flopping.  After 336 days since the Senate did its job, it’s time for House Republicans to do their job and let us vote to finally fix the broken immigration system. The time is now.

The “Visual History of Republican Inaction on Immigration Reform” timeline documents key dates over the last four years — from when House Democrats passed the DREAM Act in 2010 to the latest excuse for inaction from House Republican leaders in 2014. Check out the timeline here (snippets follow below):
