59 Democrats Vote with GOP to Deport Illegals Caught Drunk Driving

The House passed a bill to deport illegal aliens caught drunk driving after fifty-nine Democrats voted with Republicans.

The measure passed Thursday with a 274-150 vote.

It was mainly passed GOP votes as one hundred fifty Democrats voted against it.

Rep. Barry Moore (R-AL), who introduced the bill, celebrated its passing in a statement.

“In the United States, someone dies in a crash with an impaired driver every 45 minutes,” Moore said.

“I lost two of my young newlywed constituents to an illegal immigrant driving under the influence of alcohol.”

The bill would make people who were charged with a DUI and are in the U.S. illegally automatically eligible for deportation and permanently inadmissible.

Just last month, an illegal border crosser from El Salvador was accused of killing a mother and son in a car crash that police said involved alcohol.

As Slay News reported, the foreign suspect had been deported four times before causing te deadly crash in Colorado.

Republicans have long pushed for stricter immigration and border security measures.

However, the issues have taken on a particular urgency this year as polls show likely 2024 voters being increasingly concerned about the state of both.

Democrat President Joe Biden has recently ramped up his rhetoric on the border as well, despite his continued failure to act.

Biden recently pledged to “shut” the U.S.-Mexico border if granted the ability in legislation that Senate and White House negotiators are currently working toward.

Meanwhile, Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has made the border a central focus of his since taking the gavel in October.

He led a delegation of more than 60 House Republicans to Eagle Pass, Texas, and has repeatedly hammered Biden over policies Johnson said have fueled the migrant crisis.

House GOP leaders are also expected to hold a chamber-wide vote on impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who has been involved in the Senate-White House talks over the border.

The White House and its allies have accused Republicans of playing politics with the border and insisted that the crisis must be fixed by Johnson approving more funding and authority for the president.

“They don’t want to solve the problem, they want to keep the problem going as a campaign issue,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said during the debate on the DUI bill.

“So don’t come up here and talk about the problems on the southern border if you won’t give the president any means to deal with it.”

Moore argued, “They made it a campaign issue when Biden came in on day one.”

He accused Biden of fueling the border crisis by repealing Trump administration policies like Remain In Mexico.

“Biden has every tool in the toolbox to shut the southern border down… we don’t need more money, we need to apply the laws that are on the books,” Moore said.
