Republicans Pass Laken Riley Act Despite Opposition from 170 Democrats

In a recent House session, Republicans successfully advanced the Laken Riley Act, a legislative initiative met with resistance from a significant number of Democrats. The Act proposes stringent measures, compelling federal agents to apprehend any illegal immigrant facing theft charges.


Critical Votes: The bill secured a 251-170 victory, garnering unanimous support from Republicans and 37 Democrats. Named after Laken Riley, a 22-year-old nursing student tragically murdered by an illegal alien during a campus jog, the legislation aims to address the failures in immigration enforcement that contributed to her death.


Riley’s Tragic Connection: Laken Riley fell victim to Jose Ibarra, a 26-year-old Venezuelan national previously arrested for theft in Georgia. Despite being in the country illegally, Ibarra was released with just a citation. The proposed law seeks to prevent such instances, potentially saving lives.


Empowering States: The legislation also empowers states to pursue legal recourse against the federal government if its immigration enforcement adversely affects the state or its citizens.


Democrats’ Stance: The noteworthy opposition from Democrats has sparked criticism from Speaker Mike Johnson, who denounced their priorities, emphasizing the potential for more victims like Laken Riley if the Democrats’ stance prevails.


Background: Laken Riley’s mother broke her silence, taking to social media to express the profound grief caused by her daughter’s “senseless and avoidable tragedy.” The emotional plea for justice adds a poignant backdrop to the legislative push for the Laken Riley Act.



Here is the list of every Democrat who voted against this bill.
