Congressman Luke Messer (IN-06) along with 235 members of Congress voted for H.R. 240 the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2015. H.R. 240 reverses the President’s immigration actions by preventing any funds or fees from being used to implement his executive amnesty. “We promised the American people we would fight the President’s unconstitutional executive order,” said Congressman Luke Messer. “We began that fight today. We all know our immigration system is broken. We need real solutions for fixing it. This is the first step in what will be a long but needed process to deter illegal immigration, increase border security and fix our broken work visa program.”
