The House voted Thursday morning to defund President Obama's orders that allow officials to focus deportation efforts on illegal immigrants who have been convicted of crimes.

Republicans have argued that these orders amount to the selective enforcement of U.S. immigration laws that discourages enforcement against children who were brought to the United States illegally, or illegal immigrant adults who are not in any legal trouble. Many Republicans have dubbed Obama's orders as "administrative amnesty."

    Stupid financial move, you save the money spent in this orders, but have to spend way more in private prisons for detained immigrants, leave alone all the economic loss from not having these kids working and contributing to a country they love like own.
