Live: Steve King Presents Border Amendment at Rules Committee

Live: Steve King Presents Border Amendment at Rules Committee

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a top immigration hawk, has offered an amendment to the House GOP border crisis bill that includes language intended to prevent President Obama from expanding his current executive amnesty program. Obama has threatened to expand the program to as many as 6 million individuals with a new executive action. 

King is presenting the amendment to the House Rules Committee, which decides which amendments receive a vote on the House floor. Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the Rules Committee, indicated to reporters earlier Wednesday he personally supports King’s amendment, but that a decision on whether to allow a vote for it had not yet been made.
