House Votes to Overturn Executive Action on Amnesty

In a vote earlier today, the House of Representatives voted 236-191 to overturn both the President’s executive action on immigration, as well as the DREAM Act directive which safeguards children of illegal aliens from deportation.

The bill still has to pass the Senate, and Obama has sworn to veto the measure should it reach his desk. However, passing this bill into law over a Presidential veto is not out of the question, considering that republicans gained seats in both the house and the senate, and this bill is more about protecting congress from executive overreach.
