THOMPSON VOTES AGAINST PARTISAN IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION
WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-5) today voted against H.R. 5759, the House Republican’s legislative attempt to block President Obama’s recently announced executive actions on immigration.
“This House Majority has had more than 500 days to pass a bipartisan compressive immigration reform bill but has refused to vote. Now, instead of taking real governing action, they decided to waste more time passing a partisan bill that would undermine the president’s legal reforms and does nothing to fix our broken immigration system. It’s past time Republicans in the House put the needs of our country ahead of partisan politics and vote to pass comprehensive immigration reform.”
Congressman Mike Thompson is proud to represent California’s 5th Congressional District, which includes all or part of Contra Costa, Lake, Napa, Solano and Sonoma Counties. He is a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Rep. Thompson is also a member of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition and chairs the bipartisan, bicameral Congressional Wine Caucus.
