Heritage Action Key Votes DACA bill

Heritage Action announced that they’ll note on their legislative scorecard the votes for a bill authored by Representative Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.) that freezes President Obama’s  Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“To be clear, Heritage Action would have preferred language to freeze DACA be rolled into the supplemental,” the group said.  “However, it is undeniable that the President’s unilateral actions have become the focus of this debate; indeed, the DACA program has become the linchpin of this debate.”

Representative John Fleming (R., La.,) told National Review Online that he’s worried the House will pass the border bill and then kill the Blackburn legislation

“Leadership assures me that DACA will pass; now, they’re not so sure themselves that they’re willing to let us vote on it first to be sure. So, that creates a lot of anxiety for me,” Fleming said
