Marsha Blackburn, Kelly Loeffler Introduce Bill to End Birth Tourism, Fight Immigration Fraud

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) have introduced legislation to combat illegal immigration fraud and eliminate loopholes in birthright citizenship that are being exploited by foreign nationals. The Ban Birth Tourism Act will amend the Immigration and Nationality Act and ban birth tourism as a permissible basis for obtaining a temporary visitor visa.

“Over the last two decades, birth tourism has grown to be a sizable industry. Each year tens of thousands of people exploit this immigration law loophole. Our nation’s citizenship is not for sale to those who pay to come here and give birth,” said Senator Blackburn.

Thanks to Donald Trump Administration, United States Has a Coronavirus Plan of Action

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “While the potential damages of a pandemic are in general large, the analyses thus far on the coronavirus are largely global in nature and fail to account for the rapid federal response to secure the country and create a cure,” Bradley Blakeman and Christos Makridis write for The Washington Times.

“That’s evident in a recent Gallup poll that found 77 percent of the population is very or somewhat confident in the government’s ability to handle the coronavirus, up significantly from 58 percent from the Ebola virus in 2014 and 67 percent from the swine flu in 2009,” they explain.

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Tennessee is no stranger to the tragedies that occur when criminal illegal immigrants get behind the wheel. In 2018, 22 year-old Pierce Corcoran of Knoxville was fatally struck in a head-on collision caused by an illegal alien who was later deported.

In 2019, another Knoxville resident, Debbie Burgess, was killed in a hit and run accident caused by an illegal alien with a lengthy criminal history. These tragedies are not limited to Tennessee, which is why I introduced legislation that will make our communities safer.

Illegal Immigrant Crossings Fall 78%, Once Overcrowded Cells are Empty

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “There are a lot of statistics Mark A. Morgan, acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, uses to show how President Donald Trump’s policies have helped to cut illegal immigration into the United States”—but there are two that he thinks really make that accomplishment clear, Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner.

“First is daily apprehensions, a number that hit 4,600 at the height of the latest crisis in May. That has now dropped to 1,300. What’s more, he said, the 21-daily average is below 1,000, a 78% cut.”
