house Bill H.R. 1645

Extending Prison Terms for Crimes Committed by Unauthorized Immigrants Who Illegally Reentered the U.S.

Argument in favor

Unauthorized immigrants who are deported and illegally reenter the U.S. and subsequently commit crimes that injure or kill Americans should face longer prison terms.

Yes, deport or imprison illegals that commit crime. Do everything possible to stop illegal immigration. Build Our Wall. Support Our President.

Yes all illegal migrants need to know they are breaking the law by unauthorized entry into the USA. If we were to increase prison time it would probably deter them from re-entry. The best bet is to build the wall and immediately change our immigration laws.

Argument opposed

Increasing prison terms for crimes committed by unauthorized immigrants won’t deter illegal immigration or criminal activity, it’ll only increase federal prison costs.

Stupid. This bill has nothing to do with deterrence. It is only proposed to play into Trumps racist border crisis fantasies, which he has created by racist fear mongering that encourages anyone seeking a better life to come now, before all other options are eliminated.

This will not prevent crime nor will act as a deterrent instead it will just cost me more tax payer dollars to house and feed these folks. This is not the solution to punish one group in excess of the punishment for others who commit similar crimes.

Sounds like the for-profit prison industry is looking for a new source of money. Look, this is just racist. “Aggravating Factors” are not about civil paperwork violations. It’s about circumstance that increases the severity or culpability of a criminal act. Aggravating factors include recidivism, lack of remorse, amount of harm to the victim, or committing the crime in front of a child, and things like that. Not paperwork. This is just formalizing another type of discrimination in our justice system. Not something we need.

    Lets stop vilifying people just for wanting to make a better life for themselves and their families. Our legal system is already unjust as is.

    This will not deter crime nor illegal immigration. It serves only to make our bloated prison system wealthier. If you want to reduce the numbers of illegals coming to our country, get serious about addressing the root causes of “why” the come in the first place.

    How about an extended prison term for trump, McConnell, Ryan and the trump family? Yeah, that’s more like it! 🙂

    How could I have predicted this would be sponsored by a Republican from Texas before I read the entire bill? Because it’s mean spirited, it does nothing, it’s entirely aimed at brown people, it deters nothing and wastes money. I vote no.

    Racism and white supremacy are the goals here. No surprise given the author of the bill.

    So... we're going to keep them here longer, while providing 3 hots and a cot, plus free medical and dental care? Other than delaying their ability to prey on us, how exactly is this an improvement over the Democrat's open border/welfare for all plan?

    The more deterrence for illegals the better. They have absolutely no benefit on the economy & country as a whole. In fact, they average a net loss of $90 Billion a year according to the IRS. Anyone who says they benefit America is using falsified numbers or is letting their heart do what their brain obviously isn’t capable of. Which is the leftist signature.

    Yes, longer prison time for illegals but if a person is killed or murdered by an illegal why in the hell would they only do 20-40 years, that’s B.S., anyone should get life or executed. As far as illegals being in our prisons they shouldn’t, send them to Gitmo keep them out of the country, they shouldn’t be rewarded by being in our inland prisons.

    Illegal immigration is increasing the profit for privately-owned prisons. The current mess is attributed to the president and his administration. The way they handled this situation has made everything so much worse. Ineptitude of the highest degree.

    We need a sensible humane approach to immigration. Not more hate mongering. I say no to this. Let’s get a sane government and address immigration in a sane and humanitarian fashion. These issues can be managed. But not with a punitive and hateful approach.
