Public Description:  

H.R. 4882, the Southwest Border Protection Act of 2014, would direct the National Guard to secure the U.S. - Mexico border. Because many of the illegal aliens crossing the border as part of the 2014 border surge will likely receive green cards, this bill would help reduce the overall increase that is expected as a result of surge. Furthermore, it is is just about the only legislative response being offered to address the surge and slow/stop the flow.
