H.Res. 1026, the Bipartisan Reform of Immigration through Defining Good Enforcement Resolution, calls for the House to pass a bill mandating the use of the E-Verify system, pass a bill ensuring that America's borders are fully secure, and oppose all amnesty bills in 2010.
This bill is a 677 page compilation of existing bills that would redefine immigration policy in support of open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens. Among numerous provisions, it would:
Use “environmental protection” as an excuse to prevent federal and state agencies from patrolling large areas of the border
Suspend Operation Streamline, which was a zero tolerance program along the southern border, where violators were detained and prosecuted for federal immigration offenses, rather than immediately released back to their home country to try again.
To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to extend certain expiring provisions, and for other purposes.
The bill would require an employer to certify with the Department of Labor that they have not and will not lay off a large number of employees in order to employ foreign workers. Notice of a mass layoff within a 12 month period would result in the expiration of the employer’s foreign worker visas.
A bill to require employers to certify that they have not and will not lay off a large number of employees before they are allowed to employ foreign workers in the United States, and for other purposes.
To provide affordable, quality health care for all Americans and reduce the growth in health care spending, and for other purposes.
To establish requirements for any health reform legislation enacted by the Congress or the President during the 111th Congress.
The bill would replace the current visa lottery system (55,000 visas currently focused on nationality and minimum work/educational degree requirements) with a system targeted at applicants with advanced degrees. Specifically, the program would include "qualified immigrants who hold a masters or doctorate degree in the life sciences, the physical sciences, mathematics, technology, or engineering. The end result would be more high-tech and other highly educated workers, possibly in job areas not traditionally affected by H-1B visas. This bill does not affect overall immigration numbers.
The bill would make the E-Verify program permanent, allow employers to verify existing employees after 14 days in the program, allow employers to wait for an individual’s work eligibility verification before hiring them, and would impose sanctions on an employer who knowingly accepts a fraudulent document during the verification process.
To amend the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 to make permanent the E-Verify Program, and for other purposes.
