Congressman Brooks consistently receives the highest rating in Congress from NumbersUSA on border security issues for his fight to stop illegal immigration. This year, he introduced H.R. 3151, the Arrest Statistics Reporting Act, to make illegal alien crime data public, so lawmakers are better informed and empowered to make the decisions needed to protect American lives. Further, Brooks introduced the ICE Agent Support Act, which would provide resources and incentives for the enforcement of immigration laws. He also introduced the American Jobs First Act, which would reform the foreign-worker visa program (H-1B visa program), a broken system which exacerbates the country’s labor shortage and depresses wages by bringing in foreign workers to compete with American workers. Both the ICE Agent Support Act and the American Jobs First Act are companion legislation introduced in the Senate by Senators Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz.
Congressman Brooks believes the federal government has been derelict in its border protection and immigration duties with both short- and long-term adverse effects. Illegal aliens receive free health care at America’s hospitals, driving up health care costs and delaying emergency room care for American citizens. Illegal aliens get free K-12 education, driving up education costs by requiring more English as a Second Language instructors and reducing funds for American citizens. Illegal aliens take jobs in the blue collar trades, causing wage suppression and denying jobs for American workers. Congressman Brooks supports and will vote for any substantive measure that removes illegal aliens from America.
