The Bongino Report on Sunday, January 31st, posted the headline, “GOP lawmakers introduce bill to block funding to states that give driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.”
A coalition of Republican lawmakers this week introduced legislation that would block funding to sanctuary states that give driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants — the latest indicator of a significant gap between Republicans and the Biden administration on illegal immigration.
Sens. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn, Tom Cotton, R-Ark., Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Joni Ernest, R-Iowa, Steve Sained, R-Mont., Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., and Mike Braun, R-Ind. Introduced the “Stop Greenlighting Driver Licenses for Illegal Immigrants Act” which would end some Justice Department funding to states that have “sanctuary” policies.
Meanwhile Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., was introducing companion legislation in the House.
“No town in America is secure from criminals and terrorists if our borders aren’t policed and federal immigration laws aren’t fully enforced,” Blackburn said in a statement. “This country is governed by the rule of law. We should not reward illegal aliens with driver licenses when they fail to follow the proper legal process.”
Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party, based in Harrison Arkansas said, “Why stop at driver’s license’s? No Democrat run city or state that protects these illegal immigrants with sanctuary laws should receive a penny of taxpayer paid funding of any kind. The word ‘illegal’ has absolutely no meaning whatsoever when it’s put in front of the word ‘immigrant’. Illegal is becoming just like the word ‘racist’, in which it only seems to apply to White people. America is a White, Christian country, but the longer it goes, the only people punished for anything, is White, Christian citizens! Unless White people band together, they will certainly be the victim of genocide.”
