Duncan Opposes Democrat Amnesty Bill
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) opposed H.R. 6 in the House of Representatives today and released the following statement:
"Today’s vote was not a serious attempt to address the dangerous and growing crisis on our southern border. Democrats prioritized amnesty for illegal immigrants over securing the border, providing proper resources for border agents, building the wall, closing asylum loopholes, and ending catch and release – all of which are solutions to the chaos on the border. H.R. 6 encourages more illegal immigration and does nothing to protect the nation from high illegal immigration numbers, gang activity, drug smuggling, human trafficking, and terrorist threats.
"Democrats chose to make the situation worse instead of better for political gain. This is the type of legislation you get when open border Democrats control the House. Today was another missed opportunity to fulfill promises made to the American people."
