FIRST ON FOX: Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, on Wednesday introduced a House version of a bill that would block and deport immigrants with sex crime convictions from the United States – legislation that has the support of dozens of lawmakers in the House and Senate.
The Stefanik bill also adds sexual abuse the crimes that would be included in the definition. The bill currently has 58 sponsors in the House, and 20 in the Senate.
"We are witnessing a border crisis of historic proportions," Stefanik said in a statement. "The Biden Administration’s open-border policies are allowing the highest number of illegal border crossings through our Southern Border in over 30 years."
