                               RESOLUTION


 
 To support the goals and ideals of the National Day of Remembrance of 
                       Victims of Illegal Aliens.

Whereas it is an affront to the safety and security of citizens of the United 
        States to continue to ignore the growing threat of violent crime to such 
        citizens posed by criminal aliens;
Whereas, according to the Government Accountability Office, there have been 
        25,064 homicide arrests of criminal aliens since 1955;
Whereas, according to the Government Accountability Office, there were 52,929 
        criminal aliens incarcerated in Federal prisons and another 295,959 
        criminal aliens incarcerated in State and local facilities in fiscal 
        year 2009;
Whereas, in an analysis by the Government Accountability Office of criminal 
        aliens, 50 percent of those criminal aliens were arrested at least once 
        for either assault, homicide, robbery, a sex offense, or kidnapping;
Whereas there are no detailed statistics available to measure the number of 
        rapes, robberies, terrorist threats, and other crimes committed against 
        people in the United States by illegal aliens;
Whereas these crimes against Americans are preventable if the Federal Government 
        were to secure our borders, remove illegal aliens, require use of the E-
        Verify Program, and deny Social Security and other welfare benefits to 
        illegal aliens;
Whereas it is time for America to mourn the thousands of unnecessary and 
        preventable deaths that occur at the hands of illegal aliens; and
Whereas the victims of illegal alien crime deserve recognition and remembrance: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--
            (1) supports the goals and ideals of a National Day of 
        Remembrance of Victims of Illegal Aliens; and
            (2) calls for a moment of silence for the victims of 
        violent crimes committed by illegal aliens in remembrance 
        thereof across the United States of America.
                                 <all>
