Paul Gosar

U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Arizona, speaks during a rally.

As part of the Trump’s administration policy of putting America and Americans “first,” Congressman Paul Gosar has reintroduced the Criminal Alien Removal Clarification Act. He says its goal is to ensure that non-citizens, convicted of a felony or two or more misdemeanors, will be removed from the country.

“I support putting the safety of American citizens first,” Gosar said. “The lack of clarification in our laws regarding criminal alien eligibility for removal cripples the ability to keep our communities safe.”

Gosar claims there is an “existing loophole” in the Immigration and Nationality Act, which allows violent and recidivist criminal aliens to stay or come back to the United States. Gosar expects the new law to simplify the code and provide “codified guidance” to the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security.

In Arizona, there are three types of misdemeanors. A class three misdemeanor is the lowest criminal offense and typically is a form of assault, criminal trespass in the third degree or criminal speeding. That means, if the act would pass, a non-citizen could be potentially “removable” for traffic violations.

The bill does not specify if the new law would apply to green card holders also known as permanent residents.
