Sev­enty-five House Re­pub­lic­ans “joined Demo­crats on Tues­day to ap­prove le­gis­la­tion fund­ing the De­part­ment of Home­land Se­cur­ity without pro­vi­sions to undo Pres­id­ent Obama’s ex­ec­ut­ive ac­tions on im­mig­ra­tion.” That in­cludes many of the most vul­ner­able cent­rist Re­pub­lic­ans, like Reps. Martha Mc­Sally (R-AZ 02), Frank Guinta (R-NH 01), Bob Dold (R-IL 10), Mike Bost (R-IL 12), Rod­ney Dav­is (R-IL 13), Car­los Cur­belo (R-FL 26), Bruce Poli­quin (R-ME 02), and Will Hurd (R-TX 23), among oth­ers.

Most Re­pub­lic­ans, 167 in total, voted against the meas­ure, break­ing the “Hastert rule” that the ma­jor­ity of the ma­jor­ity party should sup­port a bill. All 182 Demo­crats sup­por­ted the bill. (The Hill)
