Byron Donalds Wants More Transparency From DHS

This week, U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., introduced the “Immigration Authorization Act.”

The bill “demands transparency from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) relating to programs and components of DHS that Congress hasn’t explicitly authorized.”

“This simple proposal calls for reasonable transparency and accountability outlining unauthorized DHS programs and offices that sustain the immigration-related duties of the agency tasked with keeping the nation safe. The American people deserve to know where their hard-earned tax dollars are going, and this bill does just that,” Donalds said.

“According to Congress’ ‘power of the purse’ authority, House and Senate rules prohibit any expenditure if Congress does not authorize the program or office that receives the funding,” the congressman’s office noted.

So far, Donalds has not reeled in any co-sponsors for the bill which was sent to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. So far, there is no companion measure over in the U.S. Senate.
