U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. recently introduced a Congressional Review Act resolution to repeal the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) latest attempt to further erode the integrity of the United States’ immigration system. DHS’s recently announced final public charge rule would reduce the types of taxpayer-funded federal benefits – such as food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid – a green card applicant receives that DHS can consider when determining whether to grant admission or lawful permanent residence. Senator Marshall’s measure would prevent the rule from having any force or effect.

“DHS’s proposed public charge rules continue our country down the dangerous path of incentivizing migrants to illegally cross our southern border. Granting citizenship to illegal aliens who would be dependent on federal benefits is a burden that American taxpayers and our national debt cannot afford,” said Senator Marshall. “The Trump Administration made it clear to would-be law breakers that they would receive no support or citizenship from the American government. We need to get back to policies like this if our country is going to have any hope at stopping the invasion at our southern border that started when President Biden took office.”

Upon introduction, Senator Marshall’s Congressional Review Act was endorsed by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

“The Biden administration could care less about the ultimate stakeholder in our immigration system — the American people. That doesn’t only apply to a border that is being overrun, however. The public charge rule not only flouts Congress’ intent, it erodes the integrity of the legal immigration system and sticks it to American taxpayers. We encourage Senator Marshall’s colleagues to follow his lead and fight the Biden administration’s radical immigration policy agenda on all fronts,” said RJ Hauman, FAIR’s Head of Government Relations and Communications.
