Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake have introduced a new bill that would require the Department of Homeland Security to hold illegal aliens convicted or charged with serious crimes, and then deport them within 90 days.

The bill from Arizona's two Republican senators is the companion bill to the Stop Catch and Release Act of 2015, which was proposed by Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz., on June 25.

Both bills are in response to the murder of QuikTrip clerk Grant Ronnebeck, a 21-year-old shot and killed by an illegal immigrant who was "prematurely released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement" despite being convicted of a felony and awaiting his deportation outcome proceeding, according to a joint statement from the two senators. Kathryn Steinle was also murdered in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had seven felony convictions, but was also allowed to roam freely.

Between 2010 and 2014, there were 122 illegal aliens charged with homicides after being released from prison, according to DHS, McCain said.

"It is simply irresponsible to release known criminals into the public because their court hearings take years to process," said McCain and Flake. "Our bill would stop the reckless catch-and-release policies that have led to the murders of Grant, Kate and many others by providing states the resources they need to quickly complete deportation trials."

The bill proposes spending $100 million, without an offsetting tax hike or spending cut, on this initiative.

The attorney general would have 14 days to assign up to 100 immigration judges for "renewable six-month terms," according to the bill. These judges could include retired immigration judges, magistrate judges, administrative law judges or "other qualified attorneys using the same criteria as applied to the hiring of permanent immigration judges."

Additionally, the secretary of homeland security would be required to "hire 150 new immigration litigation attorneys in the Field Legal Operations of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement," according to the bill.

The bill also seeks to "highlight the success of Operation Streamline" which authorizes law enforcement to prosecute those crossing the border illegally through a "'zero tolerance' approach," according to the press release.

"In Arizona, we've seen the success of detaining and swiftly prosecuting criminal immigrants under Operation Streamline, and our bill would be an important step in extending a 'zero tolerance' approach nationwide," they said.

The secretary of homeland security would also be required to report to the committees on the Judiciary in both the Senate and House the number of current illegal aliens who had ever been arrested, the number convicted and the number awaiting deportation. The report would also include "the number of detainers that were issued" by the DHS and then the number that were "honored," all within 180 days of the bill's passage, according to the bill.
