Stop Globe-Hopping Criminals and Terrorists

March 16, 2020

Global criminal and terror networks are threatening the United States and dismantling democratic institutions all across the world. But Congress can stop them. The below three bills—the Bipartisan Approach to Counter Corruption Abroad (BACCA)—represent
a shot across the bow of kleptocrats and human rights abusers. We urge you to cosponsor these no-cost, common-sense national security measures.

Cosponsor the Hmong and Lao Refugee Deportation Prohibition Act

March 13, 2020

I have introduced the Hmong and Lao Refugee Deportation Prohibition Act of 2020
(H.R. 6034) to stop the Trump administration from deporting individuals with Final Orders for Removal to the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (Lao P.D.R) for 72 months and have their immigration cases reassessed. The Trump administration is
currently negotiating with the Lao P.D.R on a repatriation agreement that would affect more than 4,700 individuals nationwide. The Lao P.D.R. is a communist state that does not currently have an official deportation agreement with the U.S. or extradition treaty.
Since 1975, nearly 200,000 refugees from the Lao P.D.R, including persons of Hmong, Lao, Khmu, and Mien or Yao descent, have been resettled in the U.S. Most fought or assisted U.S. forces during the Vietnam War at great personal cost, including the loss of
their homeland. It is a betrayal of trust and honor for the U.S. to deport the Hmong and Lao veterans and/or their family members who aided U.S. forces and CIA in the war in Indochina.
