    Legislation Introduced by Blackburn to Withhold Federal Funds from States Who Give Illegal Immigrants Drivers Licenses

    Micheal 2 Mins Ago

    Illegal immigration is a big concern for all Americans, and that concern has only grown more as democrats have retaken power.

    Biden and company have consistently vowed to have open borders, and to give citizenship to all illegal immigrants currently living in the United States.

    New legislation being introduced by Marsha Blackburn could go a long way in forcing states to enforce immigration laws to protect citizens from criminals and terrorists that are sure to take advantage of the free ride into the U.S. provided by democrats.

    The legislation would withhold certain federal grants for states who willingly give drivers licenses to illegal immigrants and shield them from deportation.

    Blackburn co-sponsored the bill with Rep. Ken Buck.

    Blackburn tweeted out a video announcement of the legislation on Thurday.

    Republicans have been working on this legislation for over a year.

    Blackburn first spoke of the bill in February of last year.

    Fox News covered the original announcement of the bill:

    Republicans in the House and the Senate are introducing legislation that would block federal funds from states that allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses — the latest move in an escalating fight over “sanctuary” laws.

    The Stop Greenlighting Driver Licenses for Illegal Immigrants Act would block funds to sanctuary states — which limit local cooperation with federal immigration authorities — and those that give licenses to illegal immigrants. Specifically, it would halt Justice Department (DOJ) grants, in particular those awarded under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, which is a top source of federal criminal justice funding for states.

    The legislation is being introduced in the Senate by Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn. It is being co-sponsored by Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.; Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.; Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.; Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga.; Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, and Mike Rounds, R-S.D. Meanwhile, in the House, Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., is introducing companion legislation. That bill is co-sponsored by 21 other members.

    “Tennesseans know all too well what can happen when illegal immigrants are granted driver licenses,” Blackburn said in a statement. “While Tennessee and many other states prohibit driver licenses for illegal aliens, a growing number of states are moving in the opposite direction and unleashing dangerous open borders policies. Immigrants must follow the proper federal process and obtain citizenship or lawful status before obtaining a state driver license.”

    “In America, no one is above the law,” she added.

    Ken Buck Tweeted His Support of the Bill

    Biden has made a strong effort to destroy everything President Donald Trump has done to protect the country from the dangers of open borders, including putting a moratorium on certain deportations.

    A federal judge recently blocked Biden’s 100-day hault on those deportations

    CBS News has that story:

    A federal judge on Tuesday temporarily halted the Biden administration’s 100-day moratorium on certain deportations of immigrants already in the U.S. in an early legal battle over President Joe Biden’s immigration policy.

    U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton of the Southern District of Texas agreed to pause the policy for at least 14 days while he considered a lawsuit filed by Texas’ Republican attorney general, Ken Paxton, who argued in a complaint on Friday that the deportation freeze violated immigration law and a legal agreement the state brokered with the Trump administration before Mr. Biden took office.

    The moratorium, one of Mr. Biden’s campaign promises, shielded most immigrants facing deportation from being removed from the U.S., as long as they entered the country before November 1, 2020. It does not apply to those who pose a national security risk or are suspected of terrorism or espionage. Immigrants could also agree to voluntarily leave the country.

    On January 8, Ken Cuccinelli, who was then the second-in-command at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), signed an agreement committing the department “to consult Texas and consider its views” before changing policies governing the enforcement of federal immigration law.

    DHS signed similar deals with other states and localities, but legal experts have questioned whether they are legally enforceable.

    Texas alleged in its lawsuit that DHS should have informed the state of the 100-day deportation pause before implementing it. It also claimed the policy violates federal immigration law that governs arrests and deportations of immigrants living in the U.S. without legal status or who become deportable because of certain criminal convictions.

    Now audit the State DMV Motor Voter roles against the Voter Registration records and charge every one of those corrupt officials with election fraud for registering illegal aliens and non-citizens to vote.

    They should NOT be voting in any of our elections or driving on our roads.

    Audit welfare, food stamps and the school system. Terminate illegal aliens from ALL taxpayer funded education programs and benefits and their anchor babies. Deport the illegal parents with their minor children, they cannot leave them here like a box of unwanted puppies.

    No healthcare...they need to be reported to ICE for removal. We are sick of footing the bill for their free stuff. It is not free.

    They should not be opening bank accounts or living in our housing either.

    These countries need to take care of their own people!
