The vast majority of House Democrats have opposed the deportation of migrants found guilty of committing Social Security fraud and driving under the influence (DUI) in the United States.

The bills, known as H.R. 6678 (Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act) and H.R. 6976 (Protect Our Communities from DUIs Act), were introduced by Republican Representatives Tom McClintock (R-CA) and Barry Moore (R-AL).

H.R. 6678, which deports or bars a non-U.S. national who committed a Social Security or identification document fraud from admission into the U.S., saw opposition from 155 Democrats.

Meanwhile, H.R. 6976 faced opposition from 150 Democrats. The legislation sought to create grounds for inadmissibility and removability for aliens convicted of driving under the influence (DUI). The current lack of explicit provisions in immigration law allows criminal aliens to evade accountability for DUI offenses, potentially posing risks to communities.

Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) could not help but express his disappointment with Democrats.

"I am appalled to see a majority of Democrats in the House of Representatives voting to prevent illegal aliens who endanger the lives of American citizens by drunk driving from being deported. Americans deserve leaders who put their safety and prosperity first," he said.
