Limiting deferred action for immigration
On Passage
House Roll Call No. 479
113rd Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 216-192 (see complete tally)

On August 1, the House passed H.R. 5272, a bill to “prohibit certain actions with respect to deferred action for aliens not lawfully present in the United States,” by a vote of 216-192.  ACLU opposed the bill because it would effectively end the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, prevent any future class-based deferred actions, and prevent any future grants of employment authorization to people who lack status. The bill would represent an unprecedented restriction on the executive’s long-established discretion in immigration enforcement and promulgate the creation of a second-class status for individuals who are American in all respects but their papers.  The bill was referred to the Senate for further action.
