WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives passed the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act (H.R. 3697). Congressman Scott DesJarlais, M.D., voted for the legislation to bar foreign nationals with gang ties from entering the United States and to speed deportation of illegal alien gang members.

"The USS McCain and USS Fitzgerald accidents are more warning signs that our military readiness crisis is deepening," DesJarlais said in a news release.

Several area members of Congress said they are supportive of President Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Congressman DesJarlais stated he supports the phase-out of DACA, saying it encouraged illegal immigration across the Southern border. "Our focus should be Americans out of work, underpaid, or concerned for their safety, because of unfettered illegal immigration and related border crime," DesJarlais said in a statement.
Many Tennessee lawmakers are commending President Trump’s action because it gives Congress the option to right the wrong from Former President Obama’s executive overreach. Congressman Desjarlais stated he supports the president’s decision, “Any solution to illegal immigration must include border security and domestic law enforcement, and Congress must write the law.”
