H.R. 6136 – The Border Security and Immigration Reform Act The Border Security and Immigration Reform Act (BSIRA) is compromise legislation drafted by House leadership, representatives of the various ideological factions within the GOP conference, and the relevant committee chairmen to avoid the terrible consequences of a discharge petition. FAIR understands and appreciates the political implications of this decision. However, BSIRA is nothing more than a mass amnesty bill that repeats mistakes of the past.
H.R. 4760—Securing America's Future Act A group of House Republicans led by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) introduced the Securing America’s Future Act to overhaul the nation’s immigration system. In addition to making structural reforms and strengthening immigration enforcement, the bill gives a limited amnesty to illegal alien beneficiaries of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. To date, the bill represents the most serious proposal to address the future of the approximately 700,000 illegal aliens who enrolled in DACA.
S.1615 - Dream Act of 2017 S. 1615, also known as the “DREAM Act of 2017”, was introduced by former Gang of Eight leaders Senators Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) in July 2017. The legislation, which has repeatedly been rejected by Congress and the American people since Senator Durbin first introduced it in 2001, amends the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who arrived in the United States before their 18th birthday by offering work permits and a pathway to citizenship.
