Iowa Governor Signs Bill To Arrest Certain Illegal Migrants

Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds on Wednesday became the latest state leader to take a stand against President Joe Biden’s disastrous open border policies. She signed a bill into law to assist in maintaining public safety in the face of the illegal migrant invasion.

The law allows authorities to arrest and deport illegal migrants found in Iowa who were previously deported or not allowed to enter the country.

Republicans in the state legislature were joined by a significant number of Democrats last month in passing the measure. “Illegal reentry” will be a state crime as of July 1st, and violators will face up to two years in prison along with deportation.

Reynolds noted that the Biden White House “has failed to enforce our nation’s immigration laws, putting the protection and safety of Iowans at risk.” The Republican said that despite illegal migrants by the millions breaking the law, the administration refuses to deport them.

The bill she signed, Reynolds added, gives her state the authority to enforce laws that Washington refuses to adhere to.

Violation of the Iowa law is a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison if the suspect is arrested for another felony. State judges would further be required to return individuals to their home country who are convicted of illegally entering the U.S.

The new statute specifically prohibits authorities from arresting these migrants at schools, places of worship and medical facilities. Those taken into custody will be given the option to voluntarily leave the country to avoid prosecution.

As the nation continues to be flooded with the illegal migrant invasion, other states are busy enacting similar laws. Measures such as the Iowa statute advanced in recent days in Louisiana, New Hampshire, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

And there is currently a war between the Biden White House and Texas officials over illegal migration.

Texas enacted a statute permitting police to arrest illegals and judges to deport them in compliance with federal law. But the administration took umbrance and filed suit in January against the Lone Star State over supposedly assuming Washington’s responsibilities.

This despite the fact that Washington clearly wants no part in enforcing immigration law.
