    House Dems advance spending bill that would slash ICE funding, block Trump asylum policies

    Brushing aside worries of spurring a new border surge, House Democrats led the push Wednesday to slash ICE funding, saying they were determined to punish the agency for “willful disregard of Congress’s role” in setting immigration priorities.

    More from the article:

    [NC Democrat Rep. David Price's] proposal was adopted on a 30-22 party-line vote, adding to a bill that already cut 25% of Homeland Security’s deportation force, expanded illegal immigrants’ access to lawyers and rewrote the way U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detains illegal immigrants, forcing release of tens of thousands of migrants.

    The bill also blocks any new border wall money and even revokes money approved a year ago.

    Republicans tried to restore money for ICE during debate in the Appropriations Committee but Democrats defeated that amendment on another 30-22 party-line vote.

    The bill now moves to the whole House, though Republicans said there’s no chance President Trump would sign it.
