Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert recently won a highly contested re-election race over Democratic candidate Adam Frisch in a midterm season that saw the GOP’s expectations fall significantly short.
Although Republicans didn’t achieve the expected in mid term elections, it hasn’t stopped them from enacting legislation to further protect American citizens.
Rep. Lauren Boebert recently introduced the No Taxpayer Funds for Illegal Alien Abortions Act to bar the federal government from funding abortions for illegal immigrants using taxpayer dollars.
The Daily Caller reported that “If passed, the No Taxpayer Funds for Illegal Alien Abortions Act would bar Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Health and Human Services (HHS) employees or contractors from transporting illegal immigrants across state lines to get abortions, according to the bill. The Biden administration in November instructed federal officials caring for pregnant unaccompanied illegal immigrant girls to transport them to areas of the country where abortion is legal.”
When introducing this legislation Boebert said, “The Biden administration is unlawfully using taxpayer money to transport pregnant, illegal alien children across state lines for late-term abortions. My colleagues and I have introduced bicameral legislation to end these illegal and horrific policies once and for all.”
She continued saying, Taxpayer money should never fund abortions, whether for citizens or non-citizens. Our priority at the southern border should be security and peace, not death and destruction.”
Along with restricting the federal government from funding illegal immigrants abortions, the bill would prevent the use of taxpayer dollars being used to force medical professionals to perform and assist with abortions.
Kansas Republican Senator Roger Marshall spoke on the new legislation saying “No American’s tax dollars should pay for any illegal alien’s abortion, just like they should not pay for any American citizen’s abortion. Deportations are the only form of government-funded travel ICE should be providing to illegal immigrants. Additionally, with a major strain on resources and manpower on the southern border, we should be prioritizing activities performed by ICE and HHS that keep Americans safe.”
“We’ve seen President Biden and his cabinet secretaries repeatedly abuse their power to enact a radical agenda that is failing the American people. The deterioration of our country will not stop unless Congress acts to put a check on this far left administration,” Marshall continued.
