The Protect American Taxpayer Dollars from Illegal Immigration Act has been introduced in the Senate by a group of leaders including Senator Kevin Cramer of North Dakota. The legislation seeks to prevent payments for legal settlements for illegal immigration. Under the Act, no federal funds, including money from the Judgment Fund, could be spent “to enrich illegal immigrants at the expense of hardworking American taxpayers,” Cramer said. 

In a statement, he said, “North Dakota families and businesses are struggling with inflation and skyrocketing costs on everything from gas to groceries,” and that “the last thing we need is another incentive for more migrants to come here illegally. Our bill prevents hard-earned taxpayer dollars from going to absurd settlements for immigrants who didn’t even come here legally.”
