Today, Rep. John Moolenaar (R-MI) voted to block funding for President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, and to provide appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security to enforce immigration laws and remove violent offenders from the country.

“Today, I voted for legislation that blocks funding for President Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty programs, and focuses on border security and the enforcement of current laws. This bill prioritizes the removal of violent offenders and makes America safer,” said Moolenaar.

“I hope the Senate acts quickly on this legislation to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.”

H.R. 240 passed the House, 236-191, and now heads to the Senate.
