After the recent DACA ruling, Texas Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D) shared her outrage at the outcome of the case.

“I am outraged that a local federal court recently decided to hold the DACA process illegal. I know both DACA applicants and DACA recipients and they are vital contributors to the American society,” said Rep. Jackson Lee.

Rep. Jackson Lee drew ties between the esteemed professions of the DACA recipients and their value to the U.S. workforce.

“They are doctors, lawyers, EMS paramedics, fire fighters, law enforcement, educators among others and they are needed in America.”

The ruling from U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen was viewed as harsh by some who opposed the ruling, with the Biden administration stating that it could’ve tweaked the parts that the judge didn’t like.

“It is strange that a program like DACA which requires strict scrutiny AND no criminal background can be determined illegal at a whim when the administration implemented this program out of necessity.”

The Texas lawmaker informed voters that she was fighting the legislation with her own.

“The program should be allowed to continue. I have introduced legislation to protect DACA recipients and will fight to ensure that this Congress does its job now. DACA must be approved and implemented now!”

“To the DACA recipients and applicants in Houston, you are valued, you are wanted and we will fight for you,” concluded Rep. Jackson Lee.

In other news, Texas Congresswoman Beth Van Duyne (R) joined her fellow congressmen in introducing the Unfair Tax Prevention Act. The legislation is designed to prevent foreign countries from attacking U.S. tax revenues and jobs.

“This administration could not convince Congress to pass its extremist tax hike agenda, so it handed the keys over to tax writers in Paris,” said Rep. Van Duyne.

Rep. Van Duyne claimed that if the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD) Pillar 2 Under Taxed Profit Rule (UTPR) is implemented against American workers by a foreign country, the Unfair Tax Prevention Act would impose “a reciprocal tax measure that will apply as long as the foreign country’s unfair tax remains in place.”
