This was a vote to pass H.R. 3004 in the House.

H.R. 3004 protects public safety by enhancing penalties for deported felons who return to the United States. Specifically, the bill provides for:

A sentence of not more than 10 years for an alien convicted of 3 or more misdemeanors or a felony

Imprisonment of not more than 15 years for an alien convicted of a felony and sentenced to a term of imprisonment of at least 30 months

Imprisonment of not more than 20 years for an alien convicted of a felony and sentenced to a term of imprisonment of at least 60 months

Imprisonment of not more than 25 years for an alien convicted of murder, rape, kidnapping, terrorism, or 3 or more felonies of any kind

Imprisonment of not more than 10 years for an alien who has been denied admission, deported, or removed 3 or more times, who then reenters the U.S.

In addition, any alien who is removed prior to completion of a term of imprisonment who then reenters the U.S. can have the remainder of their sentence reapplied.
