Republicans in Congress have authored a bill to discontinue the Department of Homeland Security's "Disinformation Governance Board" as soon as possible.
The "Ministry of Truth Termination Act" was written by Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert and first made public on Friday.
The outlined intention of the bill is "to terminate the Disinformation Governance Board of the Department of Homeland Security and to prohibit the use of Federal funds to establish any similar Board, and for other purposes."
Since the "ministry of truth" was revealed earlier this week, prominent figures like Ron DeSantis, Tulsi Gabbard, and Elon Musk have publicly condemned it.
Rep. Boebert explained earlier Friday afternoon why she was bringing this bill forward.
Addressing the DHS Secretary, she said: "Here's an idea: instead of trying to pull from the playbook of Stalin and Mao, how about securing our southern border so we don't have 3 million illegal aliens invading our country? How about building the wall so we don't have mobile morgues filled with dead migrant bodies. Mayorkas: stop acting like a dictator and try acting like you give a darn about the safety and security of your fellow Americans."
Senator Hawley expressed his similar view earlier this week.
Alejandro Mayorkas revealed the creation of the "Disinformation Governance Board" helmed by Nina Jankowicz, during a House Appropriations DHS Subcommittee hearing this week.
Much of the public reaction to the news since then has been fueled by the controversial stances of Jankowicz, with a lot of that focus being on her free speech beliefs and prior attempts to discredit the Hunter Biden laptop story.
It was back in February of this year that the Department of Homeland Security created the pretenses necessary to establish their Disinformation Governance Board, when DHS put out a bulletin that alleged "misinformation" created a heightened threat for domestic terrorism.
