“There is only one group of people harmed by this vote, and that’s children,” First Focus Campaign for Children President Bruce Lesley said in a statement in response to the House vote. “Every parent and every American who values kids should be appalled.”

The House vote comes as the Senate prepares to debate the immigration reform bill, which includes an accelerated pathway to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children.
