Representative Mark Green Cracks Down on Border Crisis with New Legislation

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green introduced the Migrant Accountability Act to tackle some of the key pull factors causing the record-breaking surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border.

The legislation, which follows multiple reports that the Joe Biden Administration flew unaccompanied alien children (UACs) into the State of Tennessee without the state’s consent, builds on his previously-introduced States Have a Say Act.

In addition to requiring the Federal government to receive permission from a state’s Governor before resettling refugees within that state’s boundaries, this bill requires the same permission before placing unaccompanied alien children (UACs) in any state.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Calling For Transparency In Chattanooga Migrant Facilities

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Hearing about child abuse at a Chattanooga migrant facility is a heartbreaking reminder of the reality of President Joe Biden’s border crisis. This incident must be thoroughly investigated. Until we secure our southern border, every town is a border town and every state is a border state.

Defending The United States Flag

Burning the flag is a direct affront to the values of our democratic republic. In Tennessee, we know all too well that the Stars and Stripes represent more than just patriotism; the flag is an unwavering beacon of valor, vigilance, and justice.

Joe Biden-Kamala Harris Administration takes action to Address Southern Border Challenge

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – The Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration is working to rebuild our immigration system after four years of chaos and mismanagement. The trend of border apprehensions in May is a reduction of individuals (unique encounters) and families below the peak in 2019.

Border numbers fluctuate, however, based on annual migration trends and that is why this administration is working to establish lawful pathways for individuals to migrate or seek protection, address the root causes of migration, restore fair, orderly, and humane means to apply for asylum and deter irregular migration.
