Dear Secretary Carter:
Washington, D.C. — Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) today issued the following statement on news that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had released three dangerous illegal aliens into Pinal County, Arizona.
The Honorable Jeh Johnson
Secretary of Homeland Security
Washington, D.C. 20528
On November 7, 2014, I alerted you to a very serious flaw in our current immigration enforcement system that continues to result in senseless tragedies across the nation. In my letter, I highlighted the high recidivism rate of criminal illegal aliens who had been turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Washington, D.C. — Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) today released the following statement after voting in favor of the bill he introduced with Rep. Duncan Hunter (CA-50), H.R. 3009, the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act.
This week, I introduced my ninth Shrink our Spending bill, and it’s one that would save you over 360 million dollars. Did you know the government owns almost a quarter of a million vehicles?
The Background: Grant Ronnebeck was a 21-year-old resident of Mesa, Arizona. He worked as a clerk at a QuikTrip, and was on duty in the early morning of January 22, 2015. At roughly 4:00 am, Apolinar Altamirano, a convicted felon and illegal immigrant who was released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on $10,000 bond, entered the store and murdered Grant; shooting him in the face for not moving quickly enough to get him the cigarettes he demanded.
Washington, D.C. — Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) today released the following statement after introducing the Establishing Mandatory Minimums for Illegal Reentry Act.
Rep. Matt Salmon has introduced a bill that would bar federal authorities from releasing undocumented immigrants who have been accused or convicted of serious crimes.
And he wants them deported within 90 days.
The fact that we need legislation to accomplish this is astonishing.
But apparently we do.
