I was heartened by the results of a new poll, which found that likely American voters overwhelmingly want to reform our immigration system to serve the national interest and work for the American people by ending Chain Migration.
The DACA amnesty “compromise” proposed by Sens. Durbin, Graham, and Flake is no compromise at all! It is simply a mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, with only token enforcement elements. To be specific, this mass amnesty proposal does not:

I urge you to support spending legislation for FY18 that will fund border improvements along the southern border.
It is vital that you and your fellow Republicans do not bow to pressure and include a DACA amnesty in the year-end spending bill. Doing so would set a dangerous precedent and encourage your pro-illegal alien colleagues to demand even larger amnesties. Moreover, Congress shouldn’t even consider an amnesty until the border is secured, E-Verify is mandated, and chain migration and the visa lottery are eliminated.
I hope you will do all you can to make sure you and your fellow Democrats do not shut down the government if the December spending bill doesn’t amnesty DACA recipients.
There are far too many Americans who can’t find work. Unfortunately, many of these Americans are less-educated or lower-skilled and have far fewer job options than many Americans.

Rep. Dave Brat has introduced H.R. 4340, the American LAWS Act. This legislation would go a long way to solving some of our nation’s most pressing immigration problems and I feel it is imperative that you and your colleagues on the House Republican Leadership and on the House immigration task force do all you can to get this legislation passed. Passing H.R. 4340 would help these disadvantaged Americans by ending chain migration and the visa lottery and mandating the use of the E-Verify system.
