Public Description:  

The bill would align U.S. immigration laws with those of Mexico, which are much more stringent, including allowing the suspension of immigration and international transit when the “public interest” or “domestic equilibrium” so requires, and requiring Federal, state, and local law enforcement authorities to check the legal status of foreigners.

To align the immigration laws of the United States with the Mexican General Population Act.
