One of the amendments would choke off funding for Obama’s executive action announced in November, which would allow some illegal immigrants to stay in the country and obtain work permits. A second amendment would halt the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA), which lifts deportation for some illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children.” The bill passed 236 to 191.

Refused To Support The DREAM Act, Backs “Adjusted” Immigration Status

Refused To Support The DREAM Act, Backs “Adjusted” Immigration Status. “Gallego and Texas Democrats have criticized Hurd for opposing the DREAM Act. Hurd has instead said students and military members should be able to earn an ‘adjusted’ immigration status and stay in the country.” [Politico, 11/03/14] Hurd Signed Anti-DACA Immigration Brief. [NO. 15-40238 UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT, 5/11/15] Previously Refused To Answer Questions on the DREAM Act Previously Refused To Answer Questions on the DREAM Act. In 2014, when asked if he supported the DREAM Act, Hurd did not answer the question directly, and instead said he supported a guest worker program. “The United States has benefitted from the brain drain of every other country for the last number of decades. We should benefit from the hard working drain as well. I do support the idea of a guest worker program,” Hurd responded. When asked if he supported in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants, Hurd said that the issue was an example of politicians making a bigger deal out of sensitive issues than necessary, and that those students could apply for F1 visas to solve the problem.

In March 2014, Hurd said that he was “completely against” a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. [El Paso Times, 3/31/14] Supported Gov. Perry’s Decision to Send National Guard Troops to the Border Supported Gov. Perry’s Decision to Send National Guard Troops to the Border. In 2014, an “alarming influx” of Central Americans migrants crossed the Mexican border into the United States, including some 57,000 unaccompanied minors. [Washington Post, 7/29/14] In July 2014, Governor Rick Perry deployed up to 1,000 National Guard troops to the border. The effort cost more than $12 million a month to Texas taxpayers, and was met with mixed reviews. [USA Today, 7/31/14] Hurd supported the effort, saying it was meaningful for Governor Perry to send the troops to the border.

“It was a man power issue. I think Governor Perry is showing real leadership on this issue… I think it was a very meaningful effort,” Hurd said. [KTSA 550, 7/29/14] Criticized Trump Plan To Build Border Wall Criticized Trump Plan To Build Border Wall. “Rep. Will Hurd (R) criticized real estate mogul Donald Trump s (R) plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, calling that approach ‘the most expensive way to do border security and the least effective.’ Hurd’s district spans more than 800 miles of that border. ‘You can’t build a wall from sea to shining sea, Hurd said. ‘It just doesn’t work.’” [National Journal Hotline, 9/09/15] Said Securing Border Should Not Come At Expense Of Doing Business In Region. “In the state of tea party firebrands like Ted Cruz, Hurd has struck a more moderate tone, insisting that securing the border can’t come at the expense of doing business in the region.” [Associated Press, 3/07/15] Did Not Believe In Viability Of Full Length Border Wall. “‘A lot of my colleagues in the interior of the country like to talk about border security. I always ask them, ‘When was the last time you’ve been to the border?’’ said Hurd, who recently helped lead some members of Congress on a trip through parts of California, Arizona and the Rio Grande Valley to debunk notions that a full-length border wall is viable.” [Associated Press, 3/07/15]

Co-Sponsored Bill To Militarize The Border, Impacting Big Bend National Park

Co-Sponsored Bill To Militarize The Border, Impacting Big Bend National Park. “This bill specifically applies to National Parks located within 100 miles of the U.S. borders, and paints a bulls-eye on Big Bend National Park. The bill would mandate that the Border Patrol build 192 miles of additional roads in the Big Bend Sector, as well as build/deploy high-tech surveillance balloons, drones and towers.
