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.

Mr. George Soros has made attacking Christian civilization his life’s work. His worldwide efforts along these lines have been serious and substantial.
The House Appropriations Committee approved an amendment to the Financial Services spending bill that would allow DACA recipients to compete with American workers for Federal jobs. So much for Congress putting American workers first!
I urge you to support the recently-passed House bill H.R. 3003, which would end sanctuary cities, if it reaches the Senate floor for a vote.
I urge you to not sign any relevant spending legislation that does not fund the border requests listed in the White House’s FY2018 proposed budget. For too long, the federal government has ignored border security, and I’m confident that the President’s request for funding would reduce illegal immigration at the border and strengthen national security.
I, along with the vast majority of your constituents, oppose the DREAM Act amnesty. Please oppose this legislation offered by Senators Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin.
I am strongly in favor of protecting the human, economic and environmental values of our desert communities. Therefore I support a Renewable Energy and Conservation Element of the General Plan that restricts utility-scale renewable energy projects to the five severely degraded areas identified by the Board of Supervisors in its February 2016 Resolution to the BLM: Amboy, El Mirage, Hinkley, Kramer Junction, and Trona.
I am disappointed that some of your Senate colleagues are pushing for an increase in H-2B numbers. As H-2B visas typically cover seasonal, entry-level, or unskilled jobs, these visas disproportionately harm young Americans. Increasing H-2B visa numbers would prevent thousands more young Americans from entering the workplace.
