Congressman Jack Kingston sponsored legislation on Thursday that he hopes will solve the latest immigration crisis, namely the flood of children immigrants from Central America. Congressman Tom Graves said that he is backing two resolutions dealing with immigration.
In a press release, Kingston said the bill “is a combination of ensuring our national security, providing a humanitarian response, and applying common sense. It will end the chaos by sending the signal that illegal aliens from other countries will be treated the same as those from Canada and Mexico.” The bill is co-sponsored by John Carter (R-TX) and Robert Aderholt (R-AL).
Writing to his constituents on Wednesday, Cong. Graves blamed Obama, then said the two resolutions he supports would provide for “expedited” deportation of unaccompanied children and force the Obama administration to say how many immigrants are crossing the border and where they are being detained.
