S. 2005: 

IRE Act

Sponsored by:  Sen. Scott Brown [R-MA, 2010-2013] in the 112th congress

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Oppose

S. 2005, the Irish Immigration Recognition and Encouragement Act, would expand the E-3 visa category to include up to 10,500 Irish nationals each year. As the Obama administration has a stated policy of waiving inadmissibility requirements for illegal aliens, and because this bill does not prevent the administration from doing so, this bill acts as a de facto amnesty for illegal Irish aliens in the United States.

Sponsored by:  Sen. David Vitter [R-LA] in the 112th congress

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

The bill would prevent Community Oriented Policing Services Program (COPS) funding from being used to uphold “sanctuary policies,” which prevent law enforcement officials in local municipalities from investigating immigration status or reporting immigration violations to Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE). COPS is important to city, tribal, state, and other local law enforcement agencies because it awards grants used to update technology, hire and train police officers, and develop crime fighting strategies. Please see H.R.1764 for the House Companion legislation.
