VIDEO: Budd Responds After Senate Democrat Calls Bill Protecting Police from Illegal Aliens “Nothing”

Washington, D.C. — In a speech on the Senate floor today, Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) pushed the chamber to pass the POLICE Act.

The bill amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to explicitly state that an illegal immigrant may be deported for assaulting a police officer. Current law does not cover all assaults against law enforcement, meaning some immigrants can remain in the country even after committing this crime.

Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) objected to Senator Budd’s request for unanimous consent by calling the bill “nothing.”

Senator Budd responded by saying:

“It’s disheartening to me to hear that a simple piece of legislation, the POLICE Act, which states that an illegal alien can be deported for assaulting a police officer, firefighter, or other first responder, is ‘nothing’. I don’t profess to understand that.
