GOP senators, including Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Mike Rounds (R-SD), have introduced the “End Child Trafficking Now Act,” which requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deport illegal immigrant adults who “refuse a DNA test and mandates a maximum 10-year prison sentence for all alien adults who fabricate family ties or guardianship over a minor.”
