WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) has introduced Criminal Alien Removal Clarification Act. This legislation ensures that non-citizens, convicted of a felony or two or more misdemeanors, can be removed from the United States. The language is simple, satisfies Constitutional scrutiny, avoids loopholes, and gives codified guidance to the DOJ and Homeland Security in order to remove non-citizens who break our laws.

“Justice Gorsuch’s ruling revealed a glaring loophole in our immigration system, said Congressman Gosar. The lack of clarification regarding criminal alien eligibility for deportation cripples our government's authority to keep our communities safe and free of violent criminals. This legislation provides a reasonable solution that prioritizes American citizens. Aliens with lawful status are here as guests, and should not maintain their status if they break the law."

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) has introduced HR 5556, Environmental Compliance Cost Transparency Act, which requires federal agencies active in the wholesale power business to disclose the costs of environmental compliance to their customers:

“It’s time to take power customers out of the dark and shine a light on the true costs associated with environmental compliance,” said Congressman Gosar. “These costs are real: In the Pacific Northwest, 30% of the rates are estimated to be related to environmental costs. In Arizona, the Glen Canyon Dam flows are estimated to cost customers up to $50 million annually due to foregone power. This bipartisan legislation is a step in the right direction to delivering affordable energy to the American consumer.”
