House GOP to Introduce Bills Boosting Police Support, Tackling Crime

In preparation for National Police Week, House Republicans are poised to introduce a series of legislation aimed at fortifying support for law enforcement and cracking down on crime. The bills include measures to enhance protections for police officers, deport illegal immigrants who assault law enforcement, and require reports on the impact of President Biden’s border policies on law enforcement agencies.

One of the key bills, backed by Rep. Jeff Van Drew, seeks to deport illegal immigrants who assault police officers. The proposal is a response to a recent incident involving an attack on New York Police Department officers by a group of immigrants. Republicans attribute the rise in such crimes to the Biden administration’s border policies.

Furthermore, a resolution led by Rep. Clay Higgins condemns President Biden’s border policies and urges support for law enforcement officers defending the nation. Additionally, another bill would mandate a report on how the surge of illegal immigration at the southern border affects law enforcement resources and personnel.

In a separate move, House Republicans are considering expanding concealed carry rights for qualified active or retired law enforcement officers, allowing them to carry concealed firearms in restricted areas. This reform aims to empower law enforcement officers to protect themselves and the public.

Moreover, a proposed bill would grant Congress the authority to override certain public safety laws enacted by the D.C. Council, which Republicans view as promoting leniency in criminal sentencing. This effort comes in response to a rise in crime rates in the district and decreased numbers of Metropolitan Police Department officers.

By championing these pro-law enforcement measures, House Republicans are working to emphasize their commitment to maintaining law and order while pushing back against what they perceive as “soft-on-crime” policies under the Biden administration.
