The Senate is expected to limit debate on the fiscal 2018 defense authorization measure and Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain is expected to offer a substitute amendment (S 1519).

The House is expected to complete consideration of the measure, which combined eight of 12 annual spending bills for fiscal 2018 for purposes of amendment.

Deport Criminal Gang Members - HR3697

The bill would make it easier to deport criminal gang members, including by making it illegal for foreign gang members to come to the United States and by providing for the detention and removal of non-U.S. citizens or non-U.S. nationals if they are criminal gang members or participate in gang activity.
