Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-FL) called on his fellow Republican lawmakers to introduce a bill that removes the Statue of Liberty because of their support for H.R. 2, known as Secure the Border Act of 2023, that would make sweeping policy changes to border security and immigration laws.
“To my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, let’s be honest with immigrants who deserve better than what you’re offering. Don’t welcome them if you plan to reject them,” the Florida Democrat said in a hearing on Wednesday. “If you keep pushing your bigoted H.R. 2 bill, then also pass this bill.”
