On Wednesday, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) introduced the Clear Law Enforcement for Criminal Alien Removal (CLEAR) Act to ensure that state and local law enforcement officials have the tools necessary to help the federal government deport criminal illegal immigrants from the United States.

This legislation comes amid an uptick in violent crimes committed by illegal aliens with prior criminal history, including the murder of Laken Riley on the University of Georgia campus.

“The recent murders of Laken Riley in Georgia and a two-year old in Maryland by illegal immigrants with previous criminal arrests were tragically avoidable, as was the abuse of young boys in Tennessee by an illegal immigrant with a prior record,” said Senator Blackburn. “No community is safe under President Biden, whose open border policies and refusal to enforce rules on the books have permitted lawlessness across the country. My legislation equips state and local law enforcement to help protect their communities and encourages the deportation of criminal illegal aliens by maintaining a comprehensive database of identifying information and opening up more detention space for interim holding.”

Senator Blackburn first introduced the CLEAR Act in 2007.
