House GOP Leaders Have Allowed One Immigration Vote: Steve King's Amendment to Deport DREAMers

Over the weekend, House GOP leaders have been making positive noises about holding votes on immigration reform next year. We need to keep up the pressure to make sure that happens. So far, those House leaders have allowed only one immigration vote: Steve King’s amendment to defund DACA and deport DREAMers.

Here’s how it played out in the U.S. House of Representatives on June 6, 2013. The vote was 224 – 201, full roll call is here.

That vote is going to be their legacy, until they pass real immigration reform.
