Congressman Introduces Bill to Stop Illegal Alien Home Squatting

A brand new invoice in Congress would cease unlawful aliens from squatting in U.S. properties. 

“We’re trying to get out in front of it to protect American homeowners,” Rep. Dan Meuser, R-Pa., says.

Leonel Moreno, an illegal immigrant from Venezuela, just lately went viral on social media after a video publish explaining how to reap the benefits of squatting legal guidelines within the U.S. 

Under U.S. legislation, Moreno informed his followers that “if a house is not inhabited, we can seize it.” 

In response to the video, and rising experiences over unlawful aliens squatting in properties in New York and his state of Pennsylvania, Meuser launched the Safeguarding Homes from Illegal Entry, Living, and Dwelling Act, or the SHIELD Act. 

The invoice makes trespassing “a deportable crime,” Meuser says. 

“So if an illegal were to claim squatter rights and enter an individual’s home illegally without any rental paperwork or legitimate lease” then, Meuser says “they can be arrested and deported and prohibited from ever entering the United States again.”

Meuser joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to focus on the rising want for the SHIELD Act, and what, if something, he anticipates President Joe Biden will do to tackle rising concern over the disaster on the southern border.
