155 House Democrats — including Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, House Minority Leader and Leader of the House Democratic Caucus and his top committee leaders —voted AGAINST a bill to deport criminal migrants who steal social security benefits from American seniors.
The Bill: H.R. 6678, the Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act
H.R. 6678 protects Americans by ensuring that criminal aliens are inadmissible to and removable from the United States for social security fraud and other identification document fraud.
- ➢ H.R. 6678 creates a new ground of inadmissibility and removability for criminal aliens who have victimized Americans through social security fraud and other identification document fraud. In doing so, this legislation streamlines the lengthy analysis for adjudicators and ensures that criminal aliens can be held to account and quickly removed from the United States for their criminal actions.
- ➢ H.R. 6678 conforms to other grounds of inadmissibility and removability in existing law by not requiring a conviction. This bill allows authorities to use an alien’s own admission that he committed social security or identification document fraud to make the alien inadmissible to or removable from the United States. In doing so, H.R. 6678 guards against far-left prosecutors who may seek to ensure that aliens are never convicted of fraud offenses so that they can remain in the United States.
- ➢ H.R. 6678 streamlines the current arduous and lengthy process, ensuring criminal aliens who victimize Americans can be quickly removed. While some federal courts find that certain fraud convictions already make an alien removable from the country, that analysis can lead to years of litigation and involves convoluted legal analysis. By avoiding this approach, H.R. 6678 ensures criminal aliens who commit social security fraud and identification document fraud are quickly removed from the country.
- ➢ H.R. 6678 takes seriously the problem of social security fraud and other identification document fraud. These crimes are regularly perpetrated by criminal aliens, and the number will no doubt increase due to the Biden border crisis. In just 2017, for example, there were “1.2 million cases in which illegal aliens used Social Security numbers that belonged to someone else or were fabricated.”1 This legislation holds aliens accountable for victimizing those Americans.
