Washington, D.C. — Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) has co-sponsored the National Oversight of Transportation Immigrants to Communities is Essential (NOTICE Act).
The bill would require federal agencies to notify states and localities when an agency uses taxpayer dollars to transport migrants within 100 miles of their jurisdictions.
The notification must include the following information about the transported alien:
- His or her legal name, country of origin, age, and sex.
- Any crimes for which the alien has been convicted.
- Any criminal gang with which such alien is or has been affiliated.
- The types of security screenings that have been performed with respect to such aliens.
The bill was originally introduced by Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. (R-KS).
Sen. Budd said in a statement:
“The Biden administration’s dangerous practice of catch and release has morphed into a relocation program to place illegal immigrants all over the country without telling local or state officials. This is unacceptable, and that’s why I support Senator Marshall’s legislation to force the Biden administration to notify states and localities when they transport illegal migrants into their jurisdiction and to provide information on any crimes for which they have been convicted.”
