Markey Wants Review Of Immigration Rules

Senator Ed Markey is asking the  Government Accountability Office to weigh in whether the family  separation policy at the southern border is a rule.   

If it constitutes a  rule, Markey says it's subject to a congressional vote of disapproval  through the Congressional Review Act.  

CRA resolutions of disapproval  allow Congress to overturn regulatory actions at federal agencies with a  simple majority vote.  

Markey says the family separation policy is  immoral and Congress should act to ban the practice.

No word on when lawmakers will decide that issue.
