U.S. House of Representatives Concludes Second Week of Debate on Immigration Policy

As reported last week, The U.S. House of Representatives (House) continued negotiating and debating U.S. immigration policy this week. After intense negotiations that lauded a favorable Tweet and Statement of Administration Policy supporting HR 6136, Border Security and Immigration Reform Act, the bill failed passage by 121-301.

The action today concludes the scheduled House votes on immigration policy.  Given no satisfactory conclusion to the matters of debate (Border Wall funding, DACA participants status etc.), we expect continued discussion on Capitol Hill.  Please check back for information as events unfold.
