House Democrats Reject Representative Mark Green’s Common-Sense Border Security Measures

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Green has offered two amendments to House Democrats’ amnesty bill that were rejected out of hand during markup. Green’s first amendment would have ensured that criminals, gang members, and other aliens who are convicted of 1 felony or 2 or more misdemeanors would not be allowed to stay in the United States.

Green’s second amendment would have preserved President Trump’s border wall and blocked the Joe Biden Administration from rolling back the progress President Donald Trump made in securing our southern border.
