Public Description:  

S. 2117, the ENFORCE Act, would: 1) end the automatic granting of citizenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens (an estimated 250,000 per year); 2) increase border controls by enlisting retired law officers in border control efforts; 3) increase interior enforcement by mandating federal officials respond to state and local officials who detain illegal aliens; and 4) prevent theft and abuse of social security numbers and individual taxpayer ID numbers, both of which are used by illegal aliens to obtain jobs fraudulently.
