Byrne reaffirms border security support after report of illegal immigrant charged ...
After news broke Wednesday that a previously deported illegal immigrant has been charged with first-degree rape of a juvenile in Shelby County, Congressman Bradley Byrne (AL-1) reaffirmed that supporting enhanced border security “is a fight worth fighting.”
In a statement to Yellowhammer News, Byrne referred to the crime allegedly committed by 27-year-old Amancio Betancourt Martinez as a “horror story.”
With the federal government’s partial shutdown negotiations stalemated on the issue of border security, Byrne asked, “When will the madness end?”
Byrne continued, “We have heard horror story after horror story about illegal immigrants who break the laws and hurt American citizens, but Democrats have chosen to shut down a portion of the federal government instead of supporting stronger border security.”
