    Approval Challenges Senate to Match Effort at Protecting Homeland Security and American Workers

    By a 239-182 vote the House of Representatives approved the Border Protection, Antiterrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act, H.R. 4437, on December 16. The legislation, authored by Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), would make improvements in this nation’s ability to control rampant illegal immigration.

    H.R. 4437 calls for a variety of steps to rein-in mass illegal immigration. At the southern border, the legislation authorizes construction of an additional 700 miles of security fencing, similar to the highly effective barrier already in place in the San Diego area. The bill would also require implementation of an electronic verification system to be used by all employers to ensure that the workers they hire are legal residents. Failure to comply with the verification procedure could result in fines of up to $7,000 per violation for a first offense and as high as $40,000 the third time an employer gets caught hiring illegal aliens.

    Illegal aliens themselves would also face stiffer penalties for violating U.S. immigration laws under H.R. 4437. Illegal entry, now considered a misdemeanor offense, would become a felony and illegal aliens could receive jail time for immigration violations.

    Sensenbrenner successfully resisted efforts from open borders advocacy groups and cheap labor interests to include amnesty and guest worker provisions in his bill. Some provisions, favored by FAIR and other immigration reform advocates were also omitted from the final version of the bill. An amendment introduced by Rep. Nathan Deal (R-Ga.) that would have denied birthright citizenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens, and another one that would have denied businesses that employ illegal aliens the right to deduct those workers as a legitimate business expense on their taxes, were stripped from the final language.

    The focus now shifts to the Senate, which must also pass an immigration enforcement bill before it can be sent to the president for his signature. The Senate is expected to take up immigration matters in February, but the prospects for an enforcement-only bill are less favorable than in the House. While Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) has offered legislation similar to the Sensenbrenner House bill, it is widely believed what comes out of the Senate will look more like the McCain-Kennedy legislation that includes a massive guest worker amnesty program. The plan among open borders Senators, who also have the backing of the Bush administration, is to pass their guest worker amnesty bill then combine theirs with the Sensenbrenner bill in a conference committee.

    The House bill, H.R. 4437, is significantly weaker than the True Comprehensive Reform measure introduced by Representatives Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and Virgil Goode (R-Va.), favored by FAIR.

    FAIR will steadfastly oppose any effort to approve a guest worker amnesty bill in the Senate committee. Any legislation that bestows legal status on millions of illegal aliens, even in the guise of a “temporary worker” program, is an amnesty that most Americans oppose on principle. Moreover, a massive guest worker program is unwarranted by current economic and labor conditions and will harm American workers.

    An immigration enforcement bill that is “balanced” by guest worker amnesty provisions is inherently dishonest. As in every instance in the past, what will inevitably happen is that illegal aliens will get their amnesty, cheap labor employers will get access to millions of low-wage foreign workers, while the American people will get a pack of empty promises.

    But they didn't ask for more church vans to transport voters to the polls. Oh that's right, they can't vote.

    That would have been a good place to drop a bomb. The INS and the National Gaurd should have taken advantage of that opportunity to surround that crowd and round up all the illegals that had volunteered themselves for deportation.

    Good idea. Hopefully nobody in Chicago wants to eat in a restaurant or shop in a grocery store after that bomb is dropped.

    We need the existing laws to be enforced, as well as reforms.
    I found this interesting:

    That's in Chicago, I can't imagine what AZ, NM, TX, CA are facing. Sorry, but that so many should be marching on 'behalf' of illegals, well...we have a very serious problem.

    Yes, but I think its more about the tone of the debate. People are also very poorly educated on what it means to be an American and a citizen. The fight has to be won in the schools, the courts and the churches. We need to educate folks and thin out the ranks of these people who blindly support this in the name of multiculturalism, a dying myth that must be killed.

    I agree. What you are saying applies to the majority of what most here would say are 'libs' and also to those that know they are illegals, but think that the fact that we are 'richer' means we 'owe' the less fortunate, ignoring our legal immigration laws do take that into account.
