Washington, January 14, 2015 | Jeff Butler (202-225-2576)
Today, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10) released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2015:
“President Obama’s executive actions on immigration announced this past November represented an unprecedented overreach going well beyond his Constitutional powers. In December, House Republicans committed to blocking them while fully funding the Department of Homeland Security and today we have done just that.
