Republican-led House blocks Obama immigration plan

US President Barack Obama speaks on immigration reform at the Copernicus Community Center on November 25, 2014 in ChicagoIn a symbolic rebuke to US President Barack Obama’s unilateral action on immigration, the Republican-led House of Representatives voted Thursday to block his plan to shield millions of people from deportation. The bill, which passed 219-197 along party lines, was introduced by conservatives furious with what they consider Obama’s abuse of power when he announced his executive order last month. The White House has also threatened a veto. Congressional leaders hope however that the bill will be sufficient to placate far-right Republicans and prevent a government shutdown that would begin late next week if Congress does not approve a federal spending bill.
