Breaking News: Tancredo is on the House Floor stuffing anti-immigrant rhetoric into valued Farm Bill
Below is a brief overview of the anti-immigrant amendment that Tancredo is pushing:
Under the Tancredo Amendment #7 to HR 2419 (“Farm Bill”), any person or entity convicted of an immigration law violation would be permanently barred from receiving any funds authorized under the Farm Bill. The permanent new punishment would be leveled against individuals and businesses convicted of even a single violation that occurred decades ago. The permanent bar applies even to immigration-related misdemeanors, for which debt to society has already been paid (in some cases, a small fine).
