House Republicans Vote to Unravel Executive Actions Announced Last November

The House passed a bill today that would fund the Department of Homeland Security through September 2015, but will block funding for the Executive Action programs announced by President Obama in November 2014, including the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program, and the extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that reaches more individuals than the original 2012 DACA program. As the bill makes its way to the Senate, Democrats have vowed to stop these contested parts of the DHS Appropriations bill to ensure that they do not survive.
