Public Description:  

H.R. 3534, the BE REAL Act, would reduce rewards for illegal immigration by prohibiting the issuance of Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers to illegal aliens. It would eliminate the Section 245(i) amnesty for certain illegal aliens. It would increase border control by amending the Posse Comitatus Act to authorize the use of the U.S. military for border enforcement. Finally, it would increase interior enforcement by requiring an electronic workplace verification system to prevent illegal aliens from taking jobs from legal workers and requiring full implementation of an entry-exit system with biometric identifiers.
