S. 1749, Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act, would create a comprehensive alien tracking and identification system by implementing an entry-exit system with an integrated database of biometric identifiers for every visa holder. This would have greatly reduced the ability for a visa holder to overstay their visa and become an illegal alien in the U.S.
S. 1627, the Visa Entry Reform Act, would create a comprehensive alien tracking and identification system that would implement an entry-exit system to check every visa holder upon entering and exiting the U.S. It would also help reduce the number of applicants who are denied refugee status but then fail to leave the country.
S. 1518, the Visa Integrity and Security Act, would have required H-1B employers to report to the INS as soon an H-1B visa holder has been fired or laid off. This reporting requirement would help deter visa overstays on the part of H-1B visa holders. It also would have implemented an entry-exit tracking system for visa holders. This would have helped reduce illegal immigration by signaling authorities when people who enter the U.S. legally on visas do not leave as then should and stay here illegally.
S. 1491 would create and implement a fingerprint processing system for every visa holder. This would help increase interior enforcement by allowing for tracking of aliens while they are in the U.S. and decreasing the probability that an alien will overstay a visa and become an illegal alien.
