This resolution would express that the House of Representatives supports the position of the Obama administration in the Supreme Court case United States v. Texas. The Court heard oral arguments in the case on April 18, 2016, which deals with whether the administration’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program is constitutional.
The authors of this legislation believe that it is constitutionally authorized by existing laws and administrative actions taken by previous administrations. Opponents feel that the administration violates the Take Care Clause of the Constitution and should not be supported.
As a simple resolution, this legislation would neither advance to the Senate nor have the force of law if it were to be passed.
