S. 2146, the "Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act" - Cloture Vote
Motion to Invoke Cloture on the Motion to Proceed
10/20/2015
Senate Roll Call No. 280
114th Congress, 1st Session

Failed: 54-45 (see complete tally)

On October 20, 2015 the Senate failed to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to S. 2146, the “Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act,” by a vote of 54 to 45 (60 votes required). The ACLU opposed the motion and S. 2146 because it would have undermined current efforts to reduce the federal prison population, perpetuated the myth that there are “sanctuary” zones free from immigration enforcement, exposed the federal government to broad liability for constitutional violations when localities imprison individuals on the basis of Department of Homeland Security immigration detainers without a judicial warrant, and penalized financially over 350 localities that have adopted constitutional community trust policies that adhere to the Fourth Amendment and promote public safety.
