Roll Call reports that congressmen are considering adding the anti-gun Fix NICS bill to the annual spending bill, called the “Omnibus.”
Members of Congress have used past spending bills to increase H-2B visas or to authorize DHS to increase H-2B visas. Please oppose any attempt at doing this in the upcoming spending bill.
I urge you to cosponsor H.R. 4760, the Securing America’s Future Act. This commonsense legislation would give work permits and legal status to DACA recipients in exchange for ending chain migration and the visa lottery and mandating the use of the E-Verify system. This legislation would solve the current DACA problem and would make it more difficult for illegal aliens to future illegal aliens to remain in the United States.
I wanted to tell you about a new Harvard-Harris poll of registered voters. It found that:
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.
Congressman Ted Budd (R-NC) is circulating a very important letter to the House leadership.
The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has released its report on Sens. Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin’s S. 1615, the DREAM Act. The report shows that their legislation would add $26 billion to the deficit over a ten year period. According to the CBO:
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.
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. 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.
