The Mark Rice for Congress Campaign (IL-8) opposes Democrat Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi’s recent votes in the U.S. House of Representatives this month, including voting No to hold illegals accountable for Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and No for holding illegals accountable for theft/fraud of social security numbers from American Citizens.

“My opponent Rep. Krishnamoorthi was among the 150 House Democrats voting against H.R. 6976, which was crafted to hold accountable illegal migrants who have trespassed into our country and then committed additional crimes. It’s unfortunate to see an elected official prioritize criminal behavior over the safety of American citizens. Thankfully, the bill passed the House on a vote of 274-150,” said Mark Rice, Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in the 8th District, in a released statement. H.R. 6976 requires illegal aliens convicted of drunk driving to be deported.

“Separately, we denounce Rep. Krishnamoorthi’s recent vote to give a pass to illegal migrants who commit social security fraud against American citizens,” added Rice.

Rep. Krishnamoorthi voted No against H.R. 6678: Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act. While 272 Congress Representatives voted yes and passed, Krishnamoorthi was among 155 other Democrats who don’t want accountability for this additional crime committed by illegal migrants.

“Our American citizens have rights, and if I am elected, the American citizens will be my priority to serve and protect their rights. This includes making sure bad actors who ignore our laws are not given a free pass to continually commit crimes against our citizens,” said Rice.

Mark Rice is running in Illinois’ 8th Congressional District which includes parts of Cook, DuPage and Kane Counties. Rice is a successful businessman, a political outsider, a husband and father of four. He has been a CEO for over a decade and has been an Illinois resident for 35 years.
