House Democrats just passed a massive amnesty bill for illegal aliens, and seven Republicans helped them by voting in favor of it.
The Democratic-controlled House passed the “American Dream and Promise Act of 2019” on a 237-187 roll call.
The bill provides permanent status with a path to citizenship to DREAMers as well as Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure recipients.

The bill — which will undoubtedly fail in the Republican-controlled Senate — does not address the border crisis, for which DHS has been begging Congress for help.
Which is why it is so perplexing that these 7 Republicans joined in favor of this bill.
- Congressman Don Bacon (R-NE)
- Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL)
- Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
- Congressman Will Hurd (R-TX)
- Congressman Dan Newhouse (R-WA)
- Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ)
- Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI)
POLL: Do you stand with TRUMP in his fight for the border wall?
Here’s a quick synopsis of this amnesty bill for illegal aliens from the president of FAIR:
H.R.6, the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019, is actually two amnesty bills that leadership decided to package together. The first bill in this package is the Dream Act of 2019, which would grant amnesty to illegal aliens who entered the United States as minors and benefits roughly 3 million illegal aliens. The second is the American Promise Act, which would grant amnesty to people who were allowed to remain in the United States under Temporary Protected Status (TPS) because of political turmoil or natural disaster in their homelands. The fact that we already have fulfilled our promise of temporary protection, and they have reneged on their promise to return home, does not seem to register with anyone in this alternative universe.
CAST YOUR VOTE: Should President Trump CLOSE DOWN The Southern Border?
These 7 Republican lawmakers contrast with House conservatives and House GOP leadership, who argue that the Democrats’ amnesty bill will only worsen the migrant crisis at the southern border.
“There is a serious #BorderCrisis right now & what do we get from Socialist Democrats? An illegal alien amnesty bill. I yearn for the day that Socialist Democrats put the interests of American citizens above the interests of illegal aliens & their own craving for political power,” Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) tweeted on Tuesday.
Here’s what House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said Tuesday in a statement.
“If Democrats were serious about immigration, they would do something about the humanitarian and national security crisis along our southern border, but Speaker Pelosi has chosen to spend the House’s time on H.R. 6, an expensive, partisan show vote.”
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, issued a similar statement:
“Sadly, Democrats are making us consider a bill to worsen the border crisis by incentivizing more people to cross our borders illegally in hopes of getting a piece of the amnesty pie. No doubt at this very minute, the smuggling cartels are getting the word out: Congress is going to legalize millions.”
While President Donald Trump is trying to secure the border, House Democrats are trying to ensure millions of illegal aliens can stay in the country.
