On September 27, 2022, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley introduced a bill that would grant individual states the power to enforce federal immigration law, which includes the deportation of illegal aliens.
Hawley is calling for the US to “take the gloves off” to combat illegal immigration.
The “Empowering States to Deport Illegal Immigrants Act” would grant state and local law enforcement officers the power to carry out certain federal immigration laws. This legislative proposal was introduced at a time when the Biden regime is doing everything possible to undermine border security.
The bill would effectively nullify a 2012 Supreme Court decision which significantly hamstrung states’ ability to enforce immigration laws.
The aim of Hawley’s bill is to give states the power to deploy their resources for immigration enforcement.
