White House Identifies Obama's Amnesty For Illegal Immigrants As "Bright Line" for Homeland Security Funding

White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz named preserving President Obama's executive amnesty as the only "bright line" for the White House in the upcoming Department of Homeland Security funding bill.

"Our view is we want a clean DHS bill," Schultz said. "I've seen some reports of Republicans sort of floating certain riders and such that our bright line thus far has been we will veto anything that includes a rollback of the president's executive actions on immigration."

Obama's unprecedented executive action on immigration, issued just this past November, would grant temporary amnesty to more than 4 million illegal immigrants including, work permits, Social Security numbers, drivers licenses, and billions of dollars in tax credits.

The House of Representatives pass a DHS funding bill that would rollback Obama's 2014 executive actions, as well as his 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, earlier this month. The Senate is set to begin debate on that bill this month, but it is unclear if they can get the 60 votes necessary to overcome a Democrat filibuster.

Even if they did find the 60 votes, Obama has also issued a veto threat to any DHS funding bill that undoes his amnesty policies.
