Upon Passage

HR 4437
Yea Nay Not voting

Republican 203 17 11

Democrat 36 162 3

Ind 1

Totals 239 182 14

There you have it, folks. No word yet on who the 28 republicans are who align themselves with liberals and lawbreakers. 17 voted no and 11 were just too yellow bellied to bother.

Here are a few (NOT all) highlights included in the bill that Cspan listed. The fence wasn't mentioned during the 5 minute vote. The anchor baby provision was dumped during a deal making by the rules committee.

Increases use of surveillance equipment

250 added inspectors at ports of entry

Mandatory minimum sentences for smuggling and reentry by an alien

Blocks admission of any street gang member

Allows deportation of 3 time drunk driver convictions of an alien

Mandatory employment verification system

UPDATE

The roll call votes are up. Hayworth voted against the bill, he said, because it didn't do enough. The rest are the usual suspects.
