The House on Wednesday approved a GOP resolution expressing support for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which a growing number of Democrats say should be abolished.
Republicans had hoped to divide Democrats by bringing up the bill. In a 244-35 vote, the measure was approved, with 18 Democrats voting to back ICE and 34 voting against the resolution. Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) was the only Republican to vote against the measure. Another 133 Democrats voted “present,” which their leadership had urged the rank-and-file to do.
They did so to protest what they argued was a political stunt designed to distract the media and the public from Congress’s failure to enact immigration reforms, including efforts to address the ongoing separation of migrant families on the U.S.-Mexico border.
