CONG. CARTER: Accountability For Illegal Immigrants

Texas Insider Report: (WASHINGTON, D.C.) – I'm back in Washington to vote on your behalf, so I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on what's happened over the last week. Illegal immigrants are invading our country, evading our laws, and getting away with it under this Administration.

I voted for four bills last week that would crack down on criminal illegal aliens and close loopholes that allow them to avoid deportation.
  • Protect Our Communities from DUIs Act makes illegal migrants who have been convicted of driving while impaired, inadmissible and deportable. Currently, illegal migrants who are convicted of a DUI are free to stay in the U.S., despite putting Americans’ lives in jeopardy.
  • Agent Raul Gonzalez Officer Safety Act imposes criminal penalties for illegal migrants who evade U.S. Border Patrol agents or other law enforcement officers. If an illegal migrant is found guilty or admits to doing this, they will be deported.
  • Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act creates a new rule: if an illegal migrant is convicted of, or admits to committing Social Security fraud or identification document fraud they will no longer be eligible for asylum, and will be deported. 
  • No Immigration Benefits for Hamas Terrorists Act creates a ground of inadmissibility and a ground of removability for illegal aliens who participated in the October 7, 2023, terror attacks on Israel and members and officials of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
In Brief
  • In a testament to Bidenomic's failures, 38% of business leaders surveyed by ResumeBuilder think layoffs are likely at their companies this year, and around half say their companies will implement a hiring freeze.
  • The Department of Veterans Affairs set a new record for the number of veterans placed in housing in 2023, putting over 46,000 people in permanent homes.
  • Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Sunday he is expanding his troops' control of the southern US border to protect it from a migrant invasion.
Congressional Award
I presented Asvini Thivakaran with the bronze Congressional Award. The Congressional Award is given to outstanding young people who excel in community service, personal development, initiative, and exploration. The Congressional Award is Congress' highest award to celebrate the accomplishments of high school students. Way to go, Asvini!
