GOP Bill Makes Victims Of Crime Committed By Illegal Immigrants A Funding Priority

President Joe Biden has shown that he is unwilling or unable to slow the flood of illegal immigration across the southern border, leaving at a greater peril for violent criminals. 

President Joe Biden has shown that he is unwilling or unable to slow the flood of illegal immigration across the southern border, leaving at a greater peril for violent criminals. 

Three House Republicans, including Rep. Greg Steube of Sarasota, are trying a different tactic to hold violent illegal immigrants accountable.

According to Fox News, the trio — which also includes Reps. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina and Mayra Flores of Texas — filed a bill last week that reorders payments through a federal program that provides funding to victims of violent crime.

Under the bill introduced by the three lawmakers, named the “Justice for Victims of Open Borders Act of 2022,” the attorney general in each state would notify the Justice Department that he or she is moving the victims of crimes by illegal immigrants to the front of the line.

Illegal immigrants who happen to be crime victims of other illegals would not qualify.

Steube told Fox News the bill, if enacted, would give the public a more accurate picture of crimes committed by illegal immigrants, and ensure victims are duly compensated for their suffering.

In an email to constituents on Sunday, he added, “For the safety of our nation and its citizens, we must address the rising crime due to Democrats’ open border policies. That starts with accurate reporting and transparency so the American people can see for themselves the extent of crimes committed by illegal aliens.”
