A Tennessee legislator has proposed the relocation of illegal aliens in Tennessee to towns that are connected to President Joe Biden and other prominent Democrat leaders.
Tennessee Rep. Bruce Griffey (R-Paris-HD75) filed HB1994 on Wednesday.
The bill summary states, “Safety, Dept. of – As introduced, requires commissioner, in collaboration with the commissioner of human services, to implement a system for the relocation of illegal aliens who arrive in this state to other locations.”
The legislation amends Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 4, Chapter 3, Part 20 by adding a new section:
(a) The commissioner of safety, in collaboration with the commissioner of human
services, shall develop and implement a system to identify and relocate illegal aliens as
soon as practicable upon arrival in this state on and after the effective date of this act.
(b) The system must:
(1) Reliably identify illegal aliens who have been relocated to this state by
the federal government or other illegal means;
(2) Provide for an orderly and economically efficient manner of removal
that minimizes costs to this state;
(3) Provide for removal with adequate speed to prevent temporary
encampments by illegal aliens or their disappearance into the communities of this
state prior to relocation; and
(4) Provide a mechanism for documenting arrivals and the personal
information of each illegal alien that is identified, to the extent practicable.
Illegal aliens that are subject to removal are then to be moved to Block Island, Rhode Island, Greenwich, Connecticut, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, Governors Island, New York, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Nantucket, Massachusetts, Newport, Rhode Island, Scarsdale, New York, Palo Alto, California, Yountville, California, St. Helena, California, or North Hero, Vermont.
President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden have a home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband own a vineyard in St. Helena, California. President Barack Obama owns a home in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki went to high school in Greenwich, CT. U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse lives in Newport, Rhode Island. U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders owns a home in North Hero, Vermont. Other cities mentioned have connections with prominent Democrat leaders.
The legislation demands that an illegal alien must be relocated as soon as possible and not later than fifteen days after arrival. It also says that the commissioner of safety will make rules that comply with the Uniform Administrative Procedures Act.
If passed, this legislation would take effect on July 1, 2022.
