Greg Steube Brings Bills Focused on Helping Veterans, Fixing Immigration System

Starting his third term in the U.S. House, U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., brought back four proposals that went nowhere when the Democrats controlled the chamber.

Steube weighed in on his plans for the four bills this week.

“I’m honored to serve Florida’s Suncoast in a third term as I defend our Constitution and sacred American freedoms in the U.S. House. After two disastrous years of single-party Democrat rule, the Republican majority has a long to-do list to get this country back on track. We must get to work right away to tackle the endless crises facing our nation and hold the Biden administration accountable, which is why I have reintroduced some of my priority legislation for the 118th Congress. This is just some of the legislation we will bring forward to help fix our broken immigration system, properly serve our veterans, protect our national security, and combat anti-Semitism. The American people deserve real results and that’s exactly what we will deliver,” said Steube on Tuesday.

Steube’s office noted that he brought back the following four proposals:

Break the Chain Act will prevent referential treatment in our immigration system through distant relatives by limiting family-based immigration visas to spouses and minor children of U.S. Citizens and Legal Permanent Residents. The bill also creates a renewable, 5-year term, nonimmigrant visa for parents of citizens that does not include work authorization.

Veterans’ True Choice Act will expand healthcare options for disabled veterans and enable service-connected veterans the ability to use TRICARE Select and TRICARE for Life. This legislation would allow veterans to use community care providers if a local Veterans Affairs (VA) facility does not offer the necessary services.

Protecting Our Land Act will protect America’s national security by prohibiting any foreign person who is a foreign adversary, state sponsor of terrorism, anyone controlled or owed or affiliated by them, or any agent or instrumentalities of a foreign adversary from purchasing public or private real estate located in the United States.

COI Elimination Act will combat systemic anti-Israel bias at the United Nations’ Human Rights Council by seeking to abolish the anti-Israel commission of inquiry and restricting U.S. taxpayer dollars from funding the commission.
