Burlison bill would allow states to enforce immigration laws, construct barriers

Missouri 7th District Congressman Rep. Eric Burlison last Thursday introduced a bill that would allow states to enforce the provisions of federal immigration law.

The State Border Defense Act would allow states to enforce federal immigration laws and construct barriers on federal lands or in waters along the southern border to prevent the ongoing flood of illegal immigration into the U.S.

A separate companion bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate by Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley.

“The Biden Administration has facilitated an intentional invasion at our south border, and President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas refuse to even acknowledge the problem, much less do anything to stop it,” Burlison told The Daily Caller.

The Republican Congressman said illegal aliens continue to cross into the U.S. and his bill will fight back against President Biden’s immigration policies.
