The vote was 223-189. Four Republicans voted no, and one Democrat voted yes.

Democrats mostly voted against the bill because they opposed its revisions to a 2008 anti-trafficking law.

The vote triggers another vote on a separate bill to reverse the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, and stop the executive branch from granting work permits to anyone in the U.S. illegally.
