Rep. Mo Brooks Introduces Measure Allowing Officials to End Settlement of Illegal Aliens in Their States:
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) on Wednesday is introducing a measure designed to “empower” local elected officials, including governors, to refuse the federal government’s attempts to resettle illegal aliens in their communities, citing the Biden administration’s “reckless policies” that have left communities in utter shambles.
The “Local Control Act” essentially adds what the congressman’s office described as a “new section” to the Immigration and Nationality Act, which would specifically require the federal officials, including the Secretary of Homeland Security “in consultation with” the Secretary of Health and Human Services and Attorney General, to notify the governor of a state prior to settling the illegal aliens in that specific state. What is more, the measure empowers the governor to stop the settlement altogether.
The bill specifically states, “No Federal funds may be used to transport, house, or resettle any alien without lawful status under the immigration laws within a State without the approval of the Governor of the State.”
Additionally, the bill also states that illegal aliens cannot be placed in a locality within the state if the locality “has in effect a law, a policy with the effect of law, or resolution prohibiting or disapproving of the transportation, housing, or resettling of aliens in that political subdivision,” per the bill’s text.
“While the federal government is tasked with enforcing our immigration laws, it is clearly the states that suffer the fallout,” Brooks told Breitbart News.
“This Administration’s reckless policies have left local communities in shambles, and put American lives at risk. If Joe Biden sees fit to abdicate his responsibility to protect American citizens in their homes and in their communities, then the state’s must be given the right to protect themselves,” he added. --->READ MORE HERE

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks introduces bill allowing state, local elected officials to deny illegal alien resettlement:
Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) announced that he had introduced legislation to empower governors and local elected officials to bar the federal government from resettling illegal aliens in their states and communities.
According to a release, the “Local Control Act” would add language to the Immigration and Nationality Act stating that illegal aliens could not be resettled into a state without the approval of its governor. Additionally, the bill would disallow illegal aliens from being placed into any locality in the state if the local government holds a law barring such resettlement within its jurisdiction.
The North Alabama congressman outlined his disapproval of President Joe Biden’s handling of the border crisis and indicated that the resettling of foreign nationals in American communities could pose a threat to public safety.
“The first duty of any government is to protect its citizens against invaders. I believe in empowering governors and local elected officials to defend their states and communities since Joe Biden has proven incapable or unwilling to do his duty,” stated Brooks. “Reports indicate that illegal aliens are being driven in unmarked white vans and being flown into communities in the dark of night by the Biden Administration.” --->READ MORE HERE
