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

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

It has been, and is currently, U.S. policy to automatically grant U.S. citizenship to the babies born to illegal aliens in the United States -- some 300,000 to 350,000 a year according to a spring 2005 article in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. Not only do these births represent additional U.S.

H.R. 1196 would also mandate the use of the E-Verify program and allow local law enforcement agencies to enforce America's current immigration laws.
