NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

H.R. 72, the Border Security, Cooperation, and Act Now Drug War Prevention Act of 2013 would allow for emergency deployments of U.S. Border Patrol agents, DEA agents, and ATF agents in states that declare an "international border security emergency." Improvements to border security are also proposed, including new equipment, technology, and vehicles for agents, in order to prevent various forms of crime including crossing into the United States at any location other than an authorized port of entry.

H.R. 830: 

SAVE Act of 2013

Sponsored by:  Rep. Sam Graves [R-MO6] in the 113th congress

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

H.R. 830, the Secure America Through Verification and Enforcement (SAVE) Act of 2013 would help reduce illegal immigration by broadening and enhancing border security and interior enforcement measures. Perhaps the most important aspect of the SAVE Act is its requirement that ALL employers use the E-Verify electronic workplace verification program, an inexpensive, quick, and accurate way to verify the employment eligibility of ALL employees. This would go a long way toward removing the job magnet for illegal immigration.

H.R. 478, the E-Verify Modernization Act of 2013, would make the E-Verify program permanent, make E-Verify mandatory for all new employees after 60 days, allows employers to check existing employees, and protects employers from having to spend resources training an employee before a confirmation.

Nuclear Family Priority Act

Sponsored by:  Rep. Phil Gingrey [R-GA11] in the 113th congress

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

H.R. 477, the Nuclear Family Priority Act, would eliminate the family-based green card categories that are directly responsible for endless chains of family migration. The current annual limits on green cards are 78,000 for parents, 65,000 for adult brothers and sisters, 23,400 for married sons and daughters and 23,400 for unmarried adult sons and daughters. H.R.

H.R. 2278:

Sponsored by:  Rep. Trey Gowdy [R-SC4] in the 113th congress

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

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.

H.Res. 326: 

Rep. Broun No Amnesty Resolution

Sponsored by:  Rep. Paul Broun [R-GA10] in the 113th congress

NumbersUSA's Position:  

Support

H. Res. 326 would express the sense of the House of Representatives that any immigration reform proposal adopted by Congress should not legalize, grant amnesty for, or confer any other legal status condoning the otherwise unlawful entry or presence in the United States of any individual.

H.R. 2124: 

Keeping the Promise of IRCA Act

Sponsored by:  Rep. John Barrow [D-GA12] in the 113th congress

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.
