On June 3, The House of Representatives passed by a 222-204 vote an appropriations bill (H.R. 2578) that denies funding for the Obama administration to file appeals in the case wherein a federal judge enjoined the administration from implementing its executive actions granting amnesty to four million illegal aliens.

 

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans decided on May 25 to let stand a February 16 injunction issued by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of the U.S. District Court in Brownsville, Texas, that blocked President Obama’s executive action to grant amnesty to four million illegal aliens.

 

On May 12, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to abolish a program known as 287(g) — which allows federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents inside county jails and also permits sheriff's deputies to act as immigration agents in the jails.

 

During a recent interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said that — were he to be elected president — his first order of business would not be to repeal President Obama’s executive action granting amnesty to four million illegal aliens. Bush, who has not yet announced himself as a candidate for the Republican nomination in 2016, said that although he did not support the Obama administration's executive action — which he called unconstitutional — he would not remove it (presumably by another executive action) immediately after assuming the presidency. Bush said he would rather rectify the action as part of “meaningful” immigration reform legislation passed by Congress.

 

Speaking in Las Vegas on May 5, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said that her plan for immigration reform included a way to provide illegal aliens with a way to achieve citizenship.
