Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) is lead author of a letter signed by more than 40 of his fellow House Republicans calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring the House-passed Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill that blocks funding for President Obama’s executive amnesty to the Senate floor as soon as possible.

After thanking McConnell for working to pass the Keystone XL pipeline, the Republicans who signed the Duncan letter press him to bring the House-passed bill to the Senate floor immediately after Keystone is done.

“As you know, appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security expire after February 27, 2015,” Duncan and his cosigners write. “The House of Representatives has passed responsible legislation (H.R. 240) that funds the Department for the remainder of fiscal year 2015 and defends the separation of powers by stopping President Obama’s unconstitutional executive actions.”

They specifically call on McConnell to fight to get that bill passed through the Senate, even though Democrats currently say they will attempt to block it.

“We write to urge you to bring H.R. 240 to the floor as soon as the Senate completes consideration of Keystone XL,” Duncan and his colleagues write. “We believe that Senate Republicans must honor the promise they made to the American people last year to stand firm against the President’s lawless actions and preserve Congress’ constitutional role as a lawmaking body. We believe that bringing H.R. 240 to the floor is the first step in accomplishing this goal.”

To get the House-passed bill to the floor, McConnell would need to convince at least six Democrats—and hold together his entire GOP conference—to vote for cloture on the bill. At this time, McConnell has said he plans on “trying” to pass the bill.

Signers of the Duncan letter include: Reps. Raul Labrador (R-ID), Steve King (R-IA), Matt Salmon (R-AZ), Dave Brat (R-VA), Joe Wilson (R-SC), Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Bill Flores (R-TX), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Ted Poe (R-TX), Sam Johnson (R-TX), Brian Babin (R-TX), Randy Weber (R-TX), John Ratcliffe (R-TX), Pete Olson (R-TX), Blake Farenthold (R-TX), Kenny Marchant (R-TX), Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), John Fleming (R-LA), Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Bill Posey (R-FL), David Jolly (R-FL), Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Doug Collins (R-GA), Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), Richard Hudson (R-NC), Mark Walker (R-NC), Bob Gibbs (R-OH), Chris Stewart (R-UT), Ted Yoho (R-FL), Steven Palazzo (R-MS), Jody Hice (R-GA), Phil Roe (R-TN), Keith Rothfus (R-PA), Reid Ribble (R-WI), Tim Walberg (R-MI), French Hill (R-AR), Scott Garrett (R-NJ), Doug Lamborn (R-CO), Todd Rokita (R-IN), Lou Barletta (R-PA), Bruce Westerman (R-AR), and Paul Cook (R-CA).
