On Wednesday, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert passed an amendment through the House with strong bipartisan support that will promote accountability and transparency for the removal of these criminal aliens Specifically, Congresswoman Boebert’s amendment requires the Department of Homeland Security to annually report to Congress and publish on its website how many illegal aliens are deported for assaulting a law enforcement officer.
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert stated, “It is shocking that illegal aliens assaulting law enforcement isn’t already codified as a deportable offense. Holding criminal aliens accountable for violence against law enforcement officers is just common sense. Rather than wasting time on the Democrats’ agenda to keep our southern border wide open and defunding the police, House Republicans are proud to ‘Back the Blue’ and have proposed policy solutions like the underlying bill to put an end to Biden’s border crisis.
“My commonsense amendment requires the Secretary of Homeland Security to create an annual report on the number of illegal aliens deported for assaulting a law enforcement officer. This will promote accountability and transparency for the removal of these criminal aliens. The American people have a right to know if illegal aliens are attacking law enforcement officers and to what extent.”
