H.R. 2124: 

Keeping the Promise of IRCA Act

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

H.R. 2124, the Keeping the Promise of IRCA Act, does everything possible to keep the promises of internal enforcement made in the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA). First and foremost, it establishes mandatory E-Verify for all future hires, effectively eliminating the jobs magnet. Penalties are increased for fraud and smuggling, and so-called "sanctuary cities" lose all State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) funding.
