PASSED

237-187

H.R. 6 American Dream and Promise Act of 2019 NO We must fix our broken immigration system and fix a bipartisan solution. Unfortunately, H.R. 6 was not this solution. I had concerns over loopholes for criminals, the inability to deny citizenship, and the lack of effort to stem the flow of illegal immigrants across our border. I am continuing to push for a better solution to this problem.

 

SUSPENSION BILLS

**A suspension bill is a bill passed by the House through suspending the rules to move quickly, circumventing the House Rules Committee. Suspension bills are typically less controversial pieces of legislation, and as the rules are being suspended, they require a higher threshold, two-thirds of those voting in the House, to pass. Additionally, these bills are often passed by a voice vote, without a formal roll call vote.
