Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke voted against President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty by voting NO on the Senate Amendment to H.R. 240 which would extend funding to Department of Homeland Security and permit funding for the President’s executive amnesty.

The following statement is from Rep. Zinke:

“Today I voted to uphold my oath to defend the Constitution and protect the American people from a lawless president, drunk on the power of his pen.  Since the day I was sworn in to office, I voted for every single measure to legally continue funding the Department of Homeland Security. However, Democrats in the Senate and House were more concerned with paying for President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty than actually keeping our homeland safe. The president has said 22 times that he did not have the authority to implement executive amnesty and federal courts agreed. I will continue to fight for Montana, defend the Constitution and secure Homeland.”

The bill passed 257-167, with some Republicans joining all Democrats who voted to pass the bill, which had already cleared the Senate.
