Bills to Strengthen Immigration Enforcement Introduced in House

March 03, 2015  | 

Four bills that would strengthen interior enforcement of immigration laws; remove the ability of the President to unilaterally shut down immigration enforcement; ensure jobs are preserved for legal workers; reform the United States’ asylum laws and make sure unaccompanied alien minors who make the dangerous trek to the United States are safely returned home have been introduced in the House.

The legislation is expected to be marked up by the House Committee on the Judiciary on March 3 and 4, HSToday.US reports.

“There are many issues plaguing our nation’s immigration system but the biggest problem is that our immigration laws are not enforced,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) in a statement. “While presidents of both parties have not fully enforced our immigration laws, President Obama has unilaterally gutted the interior enforcement of our laws. Additionally, Obama administration officials consistently exploit weak asylum standards to approve baseless claims.

Goodlatte said, “By refusing to enforce the laws against illegal immigration, President Obama’s immigration policies collectively undermine the integrity of our immigration system and send the message to the world that our laws can be violated with impunity.”

This is exactly what the Rep need to do! Send the law to the Senate and when all the Dems in the house & the Senate vote agains it and it still goes on to Obama and he refuses to sign it then it will be plainly obvious to the avg dumb voter who's on the side of whats right and legal and want to fix the immigration problem and who does not care and only wants to cater to gain more votes. Rep should hit them with as many bills as possible to fix the Obama "decrees" until either the Supreme court sides with them on Obama care & Immigration & tax rules being ignored or changed by Obama OR we have a new President that knows the limits of his power and the checks and balances in the Constitution. This President certainly doesn't. I also wonder 9f there is a Republican in the Presidency in 2016 if the Lib Dems would still allow that President to rule by "Presidential Decree, or sorry executive order? I doubt it, they would scream like a raped pig that it was unfair, and unconstitutional

I'd like to start enforcing immigration laws again. I could have made two arrests today and cancelled some visas. But only the imposter with the US passport was put in cuffs. He was returned to Mexico within five hours.
