FROM CONGRESSWOMAN LAUREN BOEBERT’S OFFICE

No Amnesty Act
In less than 3 months, the Biden Administration ushered the country into another border
crisis, and his policies and comments have fueled cartels and brought the influx of aliens at
the southern border. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) is currently encountering
more than 3,000 unlawful aliens a day that are attempting to cross the border. CPB
encountered the largest number of illegal immigrants in one month in more than seven years
as the agency encountered more than 100,000 unlawful aliens in the month of February
alone.
Biden’s border czar Roberta Jacobson acknowledged it was Biden’s policies that “may have
driven people to make that decision [to attempt to cross the border].”
This lawlessness threatens the safety and sovereignty of the American people. Rep. Lauren
Boebert’s “No Amnesty Act,” prohibits funding to enforce or carry out the Biden and Obama
administration’s executive actions that threaten our national and border security and fuel the
exploitation of people.
Specifically, the bill prohibits funding for:

  1. Memorandum, Enforcement and Removal Priorities, Feb. 18, 2021
    • Allows criminal aliens with felony records to remain in the country, placing
    Americans at risk of many preventable crimes.
  2. Executive Order, Impact of Climate Change on Migration, Feb. 9, 2021
    • Unlawfully expands the traditional and legal understanding of “refugee” under
    Section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to include socalled “climate refugees.”
  3. Executive Order, Asylum Seekers, Feb. 5, 2021
    • Suspends the Trump Administration’s Asylum Cooperative Agreements with
    certain Central American countries and five other Trump actions leading to the
    ongoing border crisis.
  4. Executive Order, Civil Immigration Enforcement Policies and Priorities, Jan. 25, 2021
    • Provides sanctuary for criminal aliens and only removes those who have been
    convicted of “aggravated felonies.” Even with a conviction for an “aggravated
    felony,” only those felons determined to be a “threat to public safety” can be
    removed.
  5. Executive Order, Inclusion Efforts, Feb. 5, 2021
    • Implementation of a less stringent civic examination for citizenship applicants.

    • Terminates the partnership among federal, state, and local law enforcement
    agencies to effectively identify and remove the most serious criminal offenders
    from the US.
  9. Memorandum, Prosecutorial Discretion (DACA), Nov. 20, 2014
    • Provides prosecutorial discretion to the DHS and its immigration components to
    effectively construct the law as they see fit rather than follow the codified statues.
    • Nearly 90% of DACA recipients are older than 20, and ~130,000 DACA
    recipients are in their 30s.
    • The DREAM Act will provide amnesty to more than 2 million unlawful aliens.

    not immediate relatives.

    of the INA.

    Aliens, June 17, 2011
    • Provides prosecutorial discretion to DHS to decide to what degree to enforce the
    law against a particular individual – rather than follow established law.
  15. Memorandum, Priorities for Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Aliens, March 2,
    2011
    • Revised ICE civil enforcement priorities that lead to dangerous criminals
    remaining in the U.S.
  16. Prohibition on any substantially similar policy.
