Public Description:  

The bill would close a loophole in current immigration law by making inadmissible an illegal alien who has been here unlawfully for between six months and one year unless he/she has remained outside the United States for at least three years. (Current law only applies this three-year bar on admissibility to illegal aliens who have already left the United States .)

To amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to deny visas and admission to aliens who have been unlawfully present in the United States for more than 6 months.
