Pass mandatory E-Verify

Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security John Kelly issued two memos today that cleared out most of the rubbish of past Administration internal memos and basically declared that federal law enforcement officers are now free to apply any law that Congress passed to discourage illegal immigration.

End chain migration and visa lottery

The last bipartisan commission for immigration reform, chaired by the civil rights icon Barbara Jordan, recommended ending chain migration and the visa lottery to protect vulnerable American workers and their wages. Sen. Tom Cotton has legislation, S. 354, that would make those recommendations a reality. I urge you to cosponsor this bill and support an immigration system that serves the interest of all Americans.

Cosponsor mandatory E-Verify legislation

I hope you will cosponsor and support the S. 179, Sen. Grassley’s legislation to mandate use of the E-Verify system. This bill provides for a sensible phase-in of mandatory use of the E-Verify system and will help combat identity fraud. With millions of Americans unable to find a full-time job this legislation is truly important.

Confirm Senator Sessions for Attorney General

Please vote in favor of Sen. Sessions’ nomination for the post of Attorney General. Sen. Sessions has consistently expressed a desire to uphold the law and to make sure our nation’s laws are enforced. He will make a fine attorney general and I urge you to vote to approve his nomination.

Congress needs to pass E-Verify to end illegal immigration

I am ecstatic that the Trump administration has issued executive orders to help reform and repair our nation’s broken immigration system. These executive orders fully or partially deal with 6 of NumbersUSA’s “10 Steps to Fix Our Broken Immigration-Enforcement System.” In addition to passing legislation to support these executive actions, I urge you and your colleagues to pass legislation to mandate use of the E-Verify system.

Trump’s Executive Order enhances national security and establishes refugee limits

President Trump’s Jan. 27 executive order strengthens national security and establishes limits for the refugee resettlement program. Both actions were highlighted during Donald Trump’s August campaign speech on immigration, and the American people responded by electing him president. I ask that you set aside the misinformation that’s been reported since the order was signed and support these sensible actions.

Block sanctuary legislation

I cannot fathom why the Senate is considering legislation to further shield criminal aliens from deportation. How many more like Kate Steinle have to die before California leaders understand that criminal aliens must be removed, not released. Use the authority of your office to end debate on SB 54. You’ll also be helping to prevent the budget meltdown that will occur when the Trump Administration cuts our federal funds.

End chain migration and the visa lottery

The U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform, created by President Bill Clinton and chaired by civil rights activist and former U.S. Representative Barbara Jordan, concluded that immigration was too high and that immigration numbers need to be lowered to serve the national interest. The commission also stressed that immigration numbers need to be reduced to protect American workers. New legislation, the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act, will soon be introduced by Sen. Tom Cotton and would fulfill two of the key recommendations of the Jordan Commission: ending the visa lottery and ending chain migration. Passing this legislation into law would help to fulfill the recommendations of the commission by ending the visa lottery and ending chain migration. Please cosponsor this legislation when it is introduced and help to get it passed into law.
