Now this took real courage. Since the House – Paul Ryan- couldn’t get the courage to force a vote on disbanding Ice thus getting everyone on the record, let’s do it this way. A nonbinding feel good moment that should get everyone off the hook. But wait – did it? Voting “Present” should be worth being called out during the fall election period. Individual votes link below.
The one major surprise was Amash voting ‘No’ – is he in a Muslim District?

The House passed a nonbinding resolution saying lawmakers support the “officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.” A two-thirds majority was needed to pass it, and because Democrats voted “present” instead of “no,” it passed easily in a 244-35 vote.
The final vote saw just 18 Democrats vote for the resolution, and 34 Democrats vote against it. But the vast majority of Democrats, 133, voted “present.”
H.Res. 990: Supporting the officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
