Vote Tally Count illegal immigration aliens border bill passes

Individual votes can be found in box below Yeas, Nays, NV.

The House late Friday revived and approved a Republican-authored border crisis bill after GOP leaders hurriedly resolved an internal battle that scuttled the vote a day earlier – but with the Senate on recess and the House soon to follow, there’s little chance of any bill reaching President Obama’s desk until the fall.

The president now is vowing to act unilaterally to address the illegal immigration issue.

The House legislation was approved on a 223-189 vote. The new version of the bill adds additional funding for the National Guard and includes policy changes meant to speed deportations of illegal immigrant children surging across the southern border.

However, a separate Senate bill died on a procedural vote a day earlier, and no more votes in that chamber are scheduled until early September.Even if the Senate were somehow to approve the House bill, Obama vowed Friday he would veto it. More over at

    I just suggest here Modus Operandi. All groups of representatives like E.O.s. ” I didn’t do it my dear constituents. All those other “folks” representatives won’t join with me to negate such order.” .

    Excerpt from this at Breitbart:

    It Wasn’t Pretty, But It Worked: How the Right Won the Summer Immigration Battle

    Nobody — even those among their ranks — thought it could happen, but House conservatives cracked GOP leadership to get almost everything they wanted out of a supplemental appropriations immigration bill before the Congress broke officially for recess.

    Conservatives capitalized on a perfect storm of the new House GOP leadership team’s inability to whip enough votes Thursday and the hardline stance of key conservatives. Their effort was aided by aggressive movement activists, the conservative media, and a national mood against President Barack Obama — which led many Americans to call their representatives demanding they come up with a solution to the ongoing crisis at the border.

    And once the House GOP conference united on a plan, House Democrats went into overdrive Friday in an attempt to derail the new united GOP front….

    No way that the Senate will agree to this bill that the House passed. And — I would hope — no way that the House would agree to any immigration bill that passes the Senate.

    If Boehner had allowed the vote and the passage of the bill before the Senate left, there would still be deadlock.

    So, get ready for it. Obama will use the pen and shove something down Americans’ throats.


    Congress holds the purse strings. Those could be the stopper for the worst that Obama wants to do about immigration.

      In the end, it is how it will be received and not the truth of the matter. He should have never brought forward the bill on Thursday. This is one person’s opinion. We will see how this moves forward!

    My comment on America’s Watchtower on this story: It’s called pissing into the wind.


    • bunkerville Says:

      My comment over there : Another major you know what by the GOP. Wait until the Senate is gone, then pass the bill after screwing around all year.


  5. Steve Dennis Says:

    Nothing accomplished here but a piece of feel-good legislation…


    • bunkerville Says:

      The GOP managed to blow this one big time with their behavior and waiting until the Senate had already gone home. This last minute nonsense handed Obama and the Dems big points.


    • Always On Watch Says:

      Maybe — just maybe — the House passage of the bill will affect the November elections to the point that the Senate is overturned.


      • bunkerville Says:

        Fingers crossed on this one AOW!
