(CNSNews.com) – Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) introduced a bill on Friday to withhold foreign aid and travel visas from countries that refuse to take back illegal immigrants who have been given a final order of removal from the United States.
The Criminal Alien Deportation Enforcement Act of 2016 or H.R. 5224 was filed in response to a House Oversight Committee hearingon criminal aliens. As CNSNews.com previously reported, 86,288 criminal aliens were released by the Obama administration from 2013-2015 after committing over 231,000 crimes.
One of those criminal aliens was Jean Jacques, who served over 10 years for attempted murder. Haiti refused to take him back, and six months after he was released from prison, Jacques killed Casey Chadwick in New London, Conn.
“My bill puts the interests of American citizens, like Casey Chadwick, first,” Babin said in a statement.
