As massive quantities of migrants inundate America's southern border, a group of House GOP lawmakers is pushing legislation that would put the kibosh on catch and release policies.
"Catch and release is incentivizing historic levels of illegal immigration, stretching Border Patrol resources thin, and making our communities unsafe," Republican Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, who introduced the legislation, said, according to a press release. "My legislation restores integrity in our immigration system by explicitly prohibiting DHS from paroling or otherwise releasing illegal aliens into the country. DHS can either detain the illegal alien or require them to remain outside the United States while their claim is pending. We must maintain operational control of the southern border and this legislation gets us closer to that."
Cosponsors for the commonsense measure include Reps. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Paul Gosar of Arizona, Andy Harris of Maryland, W. Gregory Steube of Florida, Randy Weber of Texas, Doug Lamborn of Colorado, Bob Good of Virginia, Mary E. Miller of Illinois, Jody Hice of Georgia, Michael Cloud of Texas, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Ralph Norman of South Carolina, and Tom Tiffany of Wisconsin.
"This is exactly what the GOP should be passing immediately after taking back the House," Boebert tweeted on Thursday.
Last year, Biggs put forward articles of impeachment targeting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
