Sen. Cruz Applauds House GOP for Passing Bill to Stop Illegal Amnesty

House bill keeps GOP promise to stop President’s unconstitutional actions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today issued the following statement on the passage of H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act:

“Today, the House of Representatives passed serious legislation that fully funds the U.S. Department of Homeland Security but denies President Obama any federal funds to carry out his illegal executive amnesty. I would like to applaud House leadership for its efforts, and also applaud the members of the House who fought successfully to have key language included to defund any expansion of the President’s illegal amnesty. It now falls to the Senate to take up the House bill, preserving those key provisions, and send it to the President, fulfilling our promise to the American people that we will put a stop to President Obama’s unconstitutional actions.”
