Heritage Action Announces Support for DACA Bill, Will Include in Scorecard
Heritage Action for America announced Friday it will be scoring the House vote on legislation targeting President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, calling on members to vote “yes” on the measure.
“Heritage Action supports the Blackburn bill and will include it as a key vote on our legislative scorecard,” the group explained Friday.
The DACA bill is expected to come up for a vote once the border supplemental bill passes.
“Basically what it is going to do is two things: it will pretty much stop the DACA program in its tracks and secondly put it in a wind-down position,” Rep. Marsha Blackburn told reporters Friday about her DACA.
The group did however, add that it would have liked the bill to have been combined with the supplemental.
“To be clear, Heritage Action would have preferred language to freeze DACA be rolled into the supplemental,” the group writes. “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.”
