Public Description:  

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.
