Webster Votes to Prohibit Illegal Migrant Encampments on Federal Land

Washington, D.C. -
Florida Congressman Daniel Webster, R-Clermont, released the following statement after voting to pass H.R. 5283, the Protecting our Communities from Failure to Secure the Border Act of 2023. H.R. 5283 prohibits the use of federal funds from being used to house illegal immigrants on federal lands, including National Parks, and revokes a lease agreement finalized by the National Park Service to house illegal aliens within the Gateway National Recreation Area."Today I voted to stop the Biden Administration from converting our national parks from areas of recreation and wonder into housing encampments for unvetted migrants," said Rep. Webster. "This legislation is one step of many that House Republicans have taken to push back against the radical open border policies pursued by President Biden and extreme Democrats. I will continue to work with my House colleagues to fulfill our commitment to America to secure our border and sensibly reform our immigration laws."
