Tennessee Representative Files Bill To Relocate Illegal Immigrants in Tennessee to Home States of Biden, Harris, Pelosi & Schumer

Tennessee Representative Bruce Griffey of House District 75 filed a bill on Wednesday that proposes to relocate illegal immigrants who are in the U.S to the home state of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer.

According to Rep. Griffey’s news release, illegal immigration has been one of the main issues driving voters in recent elections. It was a key component of TN Representative Bruce Griffey’s (R-Paris) 2018 campaign platform, and has consistently been the focus of a number of bills that he has filed over his 4 years in the TN House.

HB1994 was originally introduced by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to protect Florida from the dangerous impacts of the Biden Border crisis.

As TGP previously reported, 178,840 illegals were apprehended at the US border in December — a new record. In the first quarter of this fiscal year, a record 518,360 illegals have been apprehended at the US southern border with Mexico — also a new record.

Illegal immigration has been one of the main issues driving voters in recent elections. It was a key component of TN Representative Bruce Griffey’s (R-Paris) 2018 campaign platform, and has consistently been the focus of a number of bills that he has filed over his 4 years in the TN House. Griffey’s latest bill filed today (HB1994) is a tactic initiated by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis – relocating illegals to the home state of individuals responsible for our border crisis. Specifically, Griffey’s legislation calls on the TN Commissioner of Safety and the TN Commissioner of Human Services to develop and implement a system to identify illegals in TN and relocate them to Delaware (Biden’s home state) or California (the home state of Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, and Mark Zuckerberg), Greenwich, CT (home of Jennifer Psaki, Assistant to Biden and White House Communications Director), Martha’s Vineyard (home of the Obamas) or North Hero, Vermont (location of Bernie Sanders’ vacation home).

“The Biden administration is quietly moving thousands of illegals to various states, including Tennessee, by putting them on planes and buses and transporting them in the middle of the night, and we should return them to their sender! I imagine that if we relocated them to the backyards of those responsible for allowing the flood of illegal immigration across our border, then those with federal power might be more apt to secure the border and secure it quickly,” explained Griffey.

“It is incumbent upon Tennessee legislators to protect Tennesseans from the harms of illegal immigration and bad federal policies. We must fight back and that’s what I’m trying to do! Tennessee should not be a repository for people coming from all over the world illegally through the southern border and landing in our state. We must focus on Tennessee citizens first – what’s best for them – instead of facilitate Biden’s reckless policies,” Griffey continued.

“The bottom line is that illegal immigration hurts Tennesseans. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, illegal immigration in Tennessee cost Tennessee tax payers $793 million in 2017 alone, and that number has undoubtedly risen as the Biden Administration has allowed record numbers of illegals to pour across our border. Illegal immigration also suppresses the wages of Tennesseans at the bottom of the economic scale. Furthermore, it introduces crime into our communities. With violent drug cartels controlling portions of the southern border and operating human trafficking rings, drugs are flooding across the border with the illegals and, with drugs, comes crime,” stated Griffey.

“Illegal immigration is just that – illegal – and I have a responsibility to my constituents to call for the enforcement of the law. We need law and order! Instead, in my opinion, we have lawlessness that is intentionally being allowed to happen to benefit powerful, entrenched, wealthy corporate interests, who want cheap labor at the expense of national security, safe communities, and low-wage labor markets. If Tennessee bands together with Governor DeSantis and Florida and other states follow suit, we might actually be able to effect change,” Griffey concluded.

Tennessee Representative Bruce Griffey previously introduced “Kyle’s Law,” in honor of Kyle Rittenhouse, that would require the state to reimburse people charged with murder and found not guilty if it was proven they acted in self-defense.
