I was very pleased to see President Trump’s list of immigration principles and I support each and every one. Foremost among these principles are mandating use of the E-Verify system and ending the chain migration.
The White House has released a set of immigration principles that would increase border security, strengthen interior enforcement, including a requirement for all employers to use E-Verify, and reform the current green card system, including an end to chain migration.
While I appreciate your 70-point immigration proposal, I have to say I am still opposed to any amnesty for Dreamers or anyone else currently here illegally.
Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue have introduced a new version of the RAISE Act that would protect American workers and their wages from the massive influx of low-skilled immigration. I urge you to support American workers by supporting this legislation!
Please pass legislation that would require all employers to use E-Verify. Mandating E-Verify will prevent illegal aliens from finding jobs and help Americans get back to work.
I urge you to support the new RAISE Act introduced by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue. Recent polling has found that 72% of American voters support a key element of their bill which would eliminate extended family immigration.
I expect you to oppose the SUCCEED Act any effort to trade amnesty for immigration enforcement — it’s simply not enough and won’t stop illegal immigration!
It is the duty and responsibility of the President and Congress to enforce our immigration laws. I am opposed to any attempt to trade enforcement for amnesty for the so-called dreamers to compete and take jobs from Americans and those here legally. We tried this trade in 1986 and the result is the 12+ million illegal aliens currently in the United States. It didn’t work then and it won’t work now.
The H.R. 3354 minibus spending bill would provide funding for the Departments of Homeland Security, State, Agriculture, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development, among others. Several Members of Congress have offered immigration amendments that impact issues ranging from E-Verify to immigration enforcement.
Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) announced last week that he will start a Discharge Petition in the House to force a floor vote on his BRIDGE Act that would make Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) permanent — the unconstitutional Obama executive amnesty that allows younger illegal aliens to receive work permits.
