In a recent congressional vote, a substantial number of House Democrats opposed legislation aimed at addressing concerns related to Social Security fraud and drunk driving among migrants. H.R. 6678, introduced by Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) in December, secured passage with 172 “yea” votes, while 155 “nay” votes were recorded, all from Democratic representatives. Notably, 55 Democrats joined with Republicans in supporting the bill.

Former Trump adviser and head of the America First Legal Foundation, Stephen Miller, highlighted this development, stating that “155 HOUSE DEMOCRATS — 75% OF THEIR CONFERENCE — JUST VOTED AGAINST DEPORTING CRIMINAL MIGRANTS WHO COMMIT SOCIAL SECURITY FRAUD AND ROB OUR SENIORS.” The House Judiciary Committee also expressed concerns, emphasizing the Democrats’ stance as prioritizing the protection of illegal immigrants over the welfare of seniors.






In addition to this, 150 Democrats opposed another piece of legislation aimed at swiftly deporting illegal immigrants involved in drunk driving incidents. Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) expressed dismay, stating, “I am appalled to see a majority of Democrats in the House of Representatives voting to prevent illegal aliens who endanger the lives of American citizens by drunk driving from being deported. Americans deserve leaders who put their safety and prosperity first.”

H.R. 6976, known as the Protect Our Communities from DUIs Act and introduced by Rep. Barry Moore (R-AL), addresses a critical loophole in U.S. immigration law related to drunk driving offenses. Currently, there are no explicit grounds for inadmissibility or removability associated with driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs for criminal aliens, allowing them to evade accountability and potentially re-offend. The legislation aims to establish such grounds to enhance community safety.

However, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has expressed concerns that the bill could create a “separate but unequal” system of justice for immigrants.
