Nunes: Still No Answer for Blackburn Vote

In previous years, I have shared my great respect for Congressman Devin Nunes (R-Tulare).
A strong conservative, even while the Golden State was tarnished with liberalism, Nunes fought against Big Government, demanding fiscal restraint and economic reforms which promoted growth rather than frustrating innovation and investment.
He fights for Central Valley farmers and their water rights, honoring California residents instead of fish and game arbitrarily defined as endangered species by  remote, unaccountable bureaucracies.
While Democrats forced government health care on the American People, Nunes rejected the unaffordable Affordable Care Act, then authored key reforms to loosen the unfair, binding regulations within that prolix, complex law.
For all his work legislating on behalf of California’s Central Valley, and promoting conservative causes in Washington, I was deeply dismayed that in the latest legislative vote, HR 240, which would fund the Department of Homeland Security but defund President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty order, Nunes voted “No!” on the Marsha Blackburn Amendment, which would have removed funding for former as well as future applicants under President Obama’s DACA [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] order.
Congressman Nunes has yet to return my calls or answer my one question: Why did he vote against removing funds from President Obama’s 2012 executive order, the direct cause of the 2014 illegal immigrant youth  crisis along the Southern Border?
As the new chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Nunes should respect the security of his constituents and this country, and reject funding for every aspect of Obama’s unconstitutional power-grabbing.
