"This legislation puts an immediate halt on President Obama's executive amnesty and prevents any future orders that would attempt to bypass Congress on immigration," said Rogers. "The American people spoke loud and clear - they want our immigration laws enforced rather than a suspension and override of our Constitution."
H.R. 5759 applies to all new and previously denied requests for exemptions and deferrals of removal from the United States, as well as any related work authorization. It also provides for necessary exceptional humanitarian and law enforcement exceptions.
Additionally, this bill does not affect federal funding and will not put the country at risk of a government shutdown.
Rogers urged the Senate to take immediate action on this legislation.
