The House of Representatives is likely to consider H.R. 4312, the Border Security and Terrorism Prevention Act, as early as December 12th. The legislation contains enforcement provisions designed to increase enforcement along the Southwest border. It is unlikely that the House of Representatives will consider other immigration reform provisions, including a path to citizenship, a temporary worker program, and family backlog reduction as part of this measure.
Since your Representative will be in the district over the next two weeks, you may contact his/her district office as well as the office in Washington, D.C. Please ask your Representative to oppose H.R. 4312 on the floor of the House of Representatives. Enforcement-only legislation will not provide a solution to our immigration crisis. Since 1994, Congress has spent almost $25 billion on border enforcement, including the tripling of the number of Border Patrol agents. At the same time, the number of undocumented has more than doubled and deaths along the border have increased significantly. Only comprehensive immigration reform which features an earned legalization, temporary worker program, family-based immigration reform, and due process protections will provide a humane and effective solution to our immigration crisis.
