Senator Clinton (D-NY) and Senator Cornyn (R-TX) both introduced amendments that would provide state and local governments with federal funding for health and education expenses related to immigration.

The difference between the amendments is the Cornyn version takes the funds from a surcharge on illegal immigrants applying for legal status—the Clinton version takes the funds from the usual source: American Taxpayers

Cornyn amendment passed YEA 64 NAY 32
