Congressman Alex X. Mooney Votes to Crack Down on Illegal Immigrants

WASHINGTON, D.C – This week, Congressman Alex X. Mooney proudly voted for the following pieces of legislation to keep our communities safe: the Agent Raul Gonzalez Officer Safety Act (H.R 5585), the Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act (H.R 6678), and the Protect Our Communities from DUIs Act (H.R 6976).

“I’m proud to vote for legislation to remove criminal illegal immigrants from our country. President Biden’s disastrous open border policies are threatening every community. Illegal immigrants who evade Border Patrol and commit crimes should have no right to stay in the United States,” said Congressman Alex X. Mooney.

H.R 5585, the Agent Raul Gonzales Officer Safety Act, protects American communities by increasing penalties for smugglers and illegal aliens who evade Border Patrol agents and engage in dangerous high-speed chases. Illegals who intentionally evade Border Patrol agents will be subject to criminal penalties and be deemed inadmissible and removable from the United States.

H.R 6679, the Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act, creates a new ground of inadmissibility and removal from the United States for illegal aliens who commit Social Security fraud.

H.R 6976, the Protect our Communities from DUIs Act, would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to include driving while impaired as grounds for barring an illegal alien from entering the United States and makes it a deportable offense for those already in the country.
