Sen. Katie Britt receives rare perfect 100% rating from NumbersUSA

U.S. Senator Katie Britt (R-Montgomery) continues to receive recognition for her leadership in combating illegal migration and strengthening border security.

Britt is one of just 15 leaders nationwide and the only member of Alabama’s congressional delegation to receive a 100% score from NumbersUSA, the nation’s largest grassroots immigration-reduction organization, for the current Congress.

NumbersUSA’s Congressional Grade Card is published every session of Congress. Letter grades are assigned based on each member’s numerical score across the following 11 categories: Support Great Solutions, Reduce Chain Migration, Reduce Visa Lottery, Reduce Unnecessary Worker Visas, Refugees and Asylees, Reduce Amnesty Enticements, End Birthright Citizenship, Reduce Illegal Immigration Rewards, Strengthen Border Security, Strengthen Interior Enforcement, and Leadership.

Britt, who received an A+ grade, is one of just 11 Senators to receive a perfect score for the current 118th Congress, along with the likes of Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Mike Lee (R-UT). Only four members of the House received a 100% rating.

Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) received a near-perfect score of 99%, which also garnered an A+ grade.

The lowest scoring Republicans in the upper chamber were Senators Mitt Romney (R-UT), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), all in the high-40s. The highest scoring Senate Democrat was vulnerable Senator Jon Tester (D-MT).

In NumbersUSA’s scorecard, the organization highlighted four pieces of legislation introduced and led in the Senate by Britt: the Laken Riley Act, the WALL Act, the Asylum Abuse Reduction Act, and the Keep Our Communities Safe Act.

Earlier this week, Britt criticized President Biden’s new executive action to grant a pathway to citizenship to roughly 500,000 illegal aliens as a “massive amnesty plan.”

She advised that it will act “as a magnet for more mass migration and more lawlessness at the southern border.”

“The choice is clear on November 5: Stick with catch and release,” Britt added. “Or return to detain and deport.”
