House Votes to Roll Back Obama's Immigration Actions

Hosted by

Most House Republicans today voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security with amendments designed to kill the President's executive orders shielding millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation.  Speaker John Boehner denied the move was a dispute between parties, but rather an "executive overreach" and "an affront to the rule of law and to the constitution itself."

Today's amended bill passed, satisfying hard-line party members but some moderates are unhappy, as we hear from Seung Min Kim, who reports for Politico.
