Myrick Introduces Scott Gardner Act in 112th Congress -

The Scott Gardner Act is named for a beloved teacher from Gastonia, NC, who was killed by Ramiro Gallegos, an illegal immigrant who was driving while impaired (DWI).  Despite having five prior charges of DWI, Gallegos was still in the US.  Because of law enforcement’s failure to deport Gallegos, Scott Gardner was killed for simply driving to the beach on a family vacation.

Congress must act to protect our constituents’ safety, which is why we have reintroduced the Scott Gardner Act, a bill that will close loopholes that allow illegal immigrants to remain in our country after being convicted of DWI.  The Scott Gardner Act strengthens our immigration laws and preserves our safety by instructing the Department of Homeland Security to prioritize the deportation of an illegal immigrant who is convicted of DWI.
