Sen. Hawley Sponsoring Bill To Allow States To Deport Undocumented Immigrants

(Missourinet) Missouri U-S Senator Josh Hawley is sponsoring legislation that would allow individual states to deport undocumented immigrants.

The bill would grant states the authority to “remove illegal immigrants from the country, not just send them to other states,” and would allow state prosecutors to introduce cases involving illegal immigration in federal courts. In a statement, Hawley said, “if Joe Biden won’t secure the border, then it’s time to give states the power to do it.” The bill has virtually no chance of passing in the Democratic-controlled U-S Senate.
