Public Description:  

H.R. 5272 would defund DACA. The bill represents a serious effort to address the true cause of the current border crisis: President Obama's contempt for immigration law. The bill's language prevents the Obama Administration from expanding the existing illegal DACA amnesty program by using the primary power the Constitution reserves for the House of Representatives, the power of the purse. It prohibits the use of federal funds or resources for any further deferred action or work authorization for illegal aliens.
