House Judiciary Committee Unveils Four Bills To Strengthen Interior Enforcement Of U.S. Immigration Laws (Videos)

Strengthening The Interior Enforcement Of Our Nation’s Immigration Laws – House Judiciary Committee

.

.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Congressman Lamar Smith, Congressman Jason Chaffetz, and Congressman John Carter have unveiled four pieces of legislation to strengthen the interior enforcement of our 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.

THE “LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT”

Science, Space, and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the former chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the Legal Workforce Act to ensure jobs are preserved for Americans and legal workers. This bill requires all U.S. employers to use E-Verify, a web-based system that checks the Social Security numbers of newly hired employees against Social Security Administration and Department of Homeland Security records to help ensure that they are genuinely eligible to work in the U.S.

THE “PROTECTION OF CHILDREN ACT OF 2015”

Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee John Carter (R-Texas) is the author of the Protection of Children Act to ensure unaccompanied alien minors who make the dangerous journey to the United States are safely returned home. For those who stay with a sponsor in the United States while awaiting their immigration hearing, the bill provides for greater transparency and safety of these minors to ensure they are not inadvertently delivered into the hands of criminals or abusers.

THE “ASYLUM REFORM AND BORDER PROTECTION ACT OF 2015”

Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, is author of the Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act. This bill closes loopholes in current law that encourage illegal immigration, such as weak standards for asylum claims that enable the Obama Administration’s rubberstamping of fraudulent applications and policies, and effectively ends “catch and release.”

Bill Summary

THE “MICHAEL DAVIS, JR. IN HONOR OF STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ACT”

The Michael Davis, Jr. in Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act is authored by Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). This legislation ensures that the President of the United States can’t shut down immigration enforcement unilaterally by granting states and localities specific congressional authorization to assist in the enforcement of federal immigration law. It also strengthens national security and protects American communities by improving visa security, facilitating the removal of dangerous criminal aliens, and barring terrorists from entering and remaining in the United States.

Arizona Sheriff To House Judiciary Committee: Only 44% Of Southern Border Under Operational Control

Babeu To Congress: Only 44% Border Operational Control, 30% Of Border Crossers Caught Already Have A U.S. Criminal Record – Universal Free Press

.

.
While Hussein Obama and his minions make proclamations that a border he has never laid his own eyes on is more secure than it’s ever been, people who really know and who have no reason to try to hide the truth are disputing his false claims.

On Tuesday, Pinal County Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu testified before the House Judiciary Committee on the state of affairs in the United States and his county as it pertains to the issue of illegal immigration. The sheriff had nothing good to say regarding the impact of the lawlessness of the Obama regime is having on law enforcement, the nation at larger and his community.

Sheriff Babeu noted in his prepared text that his county is the number one area for drug and human trafficking into the United States in the entire country, so he is qualified to address the issues. He cited statistics that show between 87,915 and 127,285 illegals were captured annually in his sector alone, figures which do not include the amount of illegals who successfully entered the United States without being apprehended. Of the ones who were caught, Babeu states that between 17 and 30 percent were criminals who already had a record for crimes they previously committed within the United States.

He also cited a recent GAO report which stated that for 56% of our border the United States did not have operational control and that due to natural geographic features and road access, much of the illegal traffic from the three of four Arizona sectors which still are not controlled is funneled through his county.

He noted that his office led the largest drug bust in Arizona history, valued at $3 billion dollars, which resulted in the arrest of 76 members of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel, and the confiscation of 108 firearms, two of which led back to Eric Holder’s fast and furious gun smuggling operation.

He used the presence of 28,600 troops presently stationed in Korea to provide contrast to the situation in America where our own border is largely left to the responsibility of local law enforcement who face what in essence is a foreign militarized criminal operation.

Sheriff Babeu advised Congress of the February 2013 release by ICE of 207 illegal alien inmates in one day, 48 percent of the serious or violent offenders, with a total of 408 in his county that year and the releases now totaling into the hundreds of thousands. These criminal predators now roam our streets, seeking American victims, rather than those of their native lands. In 2014 alone ICE charged only 24 percent, 143,000 of 585,000 potentially deportable illegal aliens which had already been apprehended by law enforcement, releasing the others onto the streets of America. In his county alone, Babeu has been informed by ICE insiders that they are releasing 30 to 50 illegals per day.

He also addressed multiple deportations and the policy of no consequence for subsequent immigration violations as well as the reward system created by allowing the Central American border crashers to remain and supporting their every need.

He also notes how the declaration of Hussein Obama is that five million illegals will receive amnesty, and how that figure is, as is customary, a blatant lie to the American people. He refers to the memorandum of DHS Director and Obama criminal co-conspirator Jeh Johnson which indicates that virtually none of the estimated eleven million illegals in the country will be prosecuted or even pursued. He says, “This is not prosecutorial discretion, but instead an intentional and flagrant disregard of the law and we will all suffer the consequences.”

He proposed a simple but aggressive plan that will solve the problem if it were to be adopted. Babeu recommended, “First, deploy 6,000 armed soldiers for a period of two years. While armed soldiers are deployed, complete the double barrier fence with the security platforms, lighting, sensors and asphalt roads to support rapid deployment of U.S. Border Patrol. Thirdly, fully enforce the law without any diversion option for illegals.”

He called upon Congress to take aggressive action to defend our borders, our communities and our nation as well as highlighting their responsibility to stand up for themselves and their legislative body which is under assault by this dictatorial regime.

The problem is fixable, but it won’t happen without taking action.
