On Tuesday, September 12th, Trump’s supporters in the House of Representatives will attempt to ram through H.R.3697, the so-called “Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act.” This bill’s misleading title hides its malicious content: it amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to give the Department of Homeland Security sweeping authority to designate who is (or was, no matter how many years ago) in a gang, and to deport them without challenge. For example, undocumented immigrants who commit “immigration offenses” under section 274 of the Immigration and Nationality Act – including harboring another undocumented immigrant – would be considered gang members. The Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security would have the authority to label even non-violent and petty offenders as gang members, with no statute of limitations on their alleged crimes.
Call Rep Turner
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from Dayton.
I’m calling to express my strong opposition to H.R.3697, the so-called “Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act,” which would label many non-violent undocumented immigrants as gang members and give the Department of Homeland Security the power to deport them without challenge. Rep. Michael R. Turner must vote NO on this undemocratic and immoral bill.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.
