LA TIMES: House OKs immigration bill to protect ‘Dreamers,’ provide path to citizenship

June 5, 2019

Democrats shunned a White House veto threat and muscled legislation through the House on Tuesday that would bestow a chance for citizenship on an estimated 2 million-plus migrants, a bill that stands virtually no chance of enactment but lets them showcase their efforts on one of their highest-profile priorities.”This is about who we are as Americans, and what is in the best interests of our country,” said Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Downey), the measure’s chief sponsor.

The bill passed in a near party-line 237-187 vote as supporters in the House visitors’ galleries roared, “Yes we can!” and other chants, a rare display of raucous emotion in a chamber where rules require decorum by guests. Seven Republicans from mostly moderate districts were the only lawmakers to cross party lines.
