Public Description:  

H.R. 2278, the Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013 would empower local law enforcement agents to enforce federal immigration laws. The SAFE Act would also require DHS to create a national immigration violators database, prevent cities from providing sanctuary to illegal aliens and would provide funding for the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) that reimburses states for incarcerating illegal aliens. The SAFE Act would help reduce illegal immigration by empowering law enforcement officials and making it more difficult for illegal aliens to live and work in local communities.
