U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) introduced the Enforcing Rule of Law on Campus Act on Tuesday, which would withhold federal funding from any college or university that employs illegal immigrants on campus.

“If colleges and universities want access to federal funding, they need to abide by federal immigration law,” said Senator Blackburn. “Hardworking American citizens do not deserve to be cast aside in order to prioritize illegal immigrants. Amid President Biden’s open border agenda and willful disregard for the rule of law, it is crucial that our educational institutions play by the rules.”

U.S. Senators Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), and Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) co-sponsored the legislation.

“Those who come into America illegally should be detained and then deported—not employed at colleges or universities,” said Senator Cotton. “Our legislation will make sure schools that are effectively aiding President Biden’s open border polices do not receive a dime of federal funding.”

“We must do everything we can do remove the incentives of illegal immigration, and stopping institutions that take federal funding from employing illegal immigrants is a no-brainer,” said Senator Braun.

The National Association of Scholars endorsed the legislation.
