GOP lawmaker introduces legislation labelling first-time illegal border crossing as a felony ~ ARIS FOLLEY (thehill.com)

Good afternoon fellow Seekers,

Be sure to call your legislator about this one. It’s about time somebody took the 1st time seriously. All it takes is one time to do any damage that may be intended. This would be the PERFECT deterrent for those who refuse to wait in line and or break our LAWS.

Here’s more from Aris Folley and The Hill…


Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) on Tuesday introduced legislation that would label a first-time illegal border crossing a felony.

Under the Tennessee Republican’s “Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act,” people detained after illegally crossing the United States border for the first time could be charged with a felony, which has a minimum incarceration sentence of a year and a day.

Illegally crossing the U.S. border for the first time is currently treated as a misdemeanor, which is less serious than a felony and sentencing usually amounts to a jail sentence of less than six months.

Black told The Washington Examiner that she believes the measure could deter more immigrants from illegally crossing the border.”What this bill does is it sets up a huge disincentive,” Black said of the legislation. “There is already a process set up and they should be using what the process is … We’re not penalizing people are who doing things the right way seeking asylum. This is for people who are going around the system.”

The GOP lawmaker said her bill would also seek to cut funding from sanctuary cities and counties that fail to honor requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for undocumented immigrants being held by local law enforcement.

Black also said the funds stripped from sanctuary cities and counties would be give to ICE instead.

Earlier this year, Black also introduced legislation that would create a “border wall trust fund,” allowing people to donate money towards President Trump’s border wall.

Black said the bill would allow those “who really want to see a secure border” to donate to a trust to raise money for the security measure.
