Immigration Policies


Staff Writer

Recently in Washington, President Obama was voted against by the Republican U.S House. Barack Obama had immigration policies in which he had planned to approve legislation, by doing so this would take away the protection that was helping many immigrants. This would give Obama the power to expose the millions of young immigrants.

About 236-191 of votes will provide at least $40 billion to help pay for The Homeland Security Department. Republicans were accused by Democrats;Democrats have said Republicans had been messing around with politics. Obama has been said to threaten to veto legislation.

Obama was accused of having reckless actions against the immigrants. Republicans wanted this assault to stop because there was no reason for it. John Boehner, House Speaker, says,” The executive overreach is an affront to the rule of law and to the Constitution itself. The people made clear that they wanted more accountability from this president, and by our votes here today we will heed their will and we will keep our oath to protect and defend the Constitution.”

Republicans have also been accused by a man with the name of Luis Gutierrez. He claims that Republicans have been “rude”. David Price shares with us, “ It’s reprehensible, reckless tactic which will compromise, has already compromised, the full and effective functioning of our Homeland Security Department.” They have experienced risks that have been involved in the security.

During the month of November Obama announced the relief of temporary deportation to a few of the 4 million immigrants. Republicans won the midterm elections in which it allowed them to take control of  the Senate.

Republicans are 6 votes away to approve most of the legislation in the Senate. Many Republicans feel uncomfortable with the House GOP being present. Especially because they have been trying to fund the security for the Paris terrorist attack. Republicans have had a thought that the Senate would not approve of the plan they had. They fear that they will be forced to end the funding towards the security department they had for the Paris attacks.

Many realized that the Senate may refuse their approach. They believe they will be forced into passing The Homeland Security funding. The expectation date for Homeland Security is coming soon. House leaders only have a small amount of time to come up with a different solution. Immigrants have said to Republicans that many Latino voters will be angry during the presidential elections of 2016 and it will have a big impact against them.
