On June 12, 2018, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced that the House of Representatives will hold votes on two immigration bills. The first, H.R. 4760, sponsored by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) is an anti-immigrant wish list, and includes provisions that would slash legal immigration, mandate harsh enforcement tactics, criminalize of unlawful presence, and provide only weak protections for a small group of Dreamers. The second, H.R. 6136, backed by Speaker Paul Ryan, pairs Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) provisions with severe cuts to legal immigration, policies that undermine vital protections for vulnerable populations, and ballooning funding for enforcement.
AILA recommended that representatives vote "no" on both bills because they each hold Dreamers hostage in return for provisions that would upend our immigration system and betray our values. On June 21, 2018, the vote on H.R. 4760 failed: 193-231. No Democrats voted for the bill. Forty-one Republicans voted against the bill. On June 27, 2018, the House of Representatives voted on Speaker Ryan’s “Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018” (H.R. 6136). That vote also failed 121-301.
