The Administration strongly opposes passage of the Schumer-Rounds-Collins Amendment.  This Amendment would drastically change our national immigration policy for the worse by weakening border security and undercutting existing immigration law.  Specifically, preventing enforcement with respect to people who entered our country illegally before a date that is in the future would produce a flood of new illegal immigration in the coming months.  The Amendment would undermine the safety and security of American families and impede economic growth for American workers.

The Administration continues to insist on a safe, modern, and legal immigration system for the benefit of the American people.  The essential pillars of such a system are securing the border through building the physical border wall and closing legal loopholes, protecting the nuclear family by limiting sponsorships to spouses and children, cancelling the visa lottery, and implementing a lasting solution on DACA.

The Administration is committed to finding a permanent, fair, and legal solution for DACA.  But this Amendment would only compound the problem by encouraging millions of additional minors to be smuggled into the United States.  We need to solve the problem, not perpetuate it indefinitely.

The vitality of the American economy and the safety and security of the American people depend upon these reforms.  The Administration cannot support the Schumer-Rounds-Collins Amendment because it is not only dangerous policy that will harm the Nation, but it also fails to deliver on the clear promise the Administration has made to the American people.

If the President were presented with an enrolled bill that includes the Amendment, his advisors would recommend that he veto it.

DHS: Schumer-Rounds-Collins Destroys Ability of DHS to Enforce Immigration Laws, Creating a Mass Amnesty For Over 10 Million Illegal Aliens, Including Criminals

The Schumer-Rounds-Collins proposal destroys the ability of the men and women from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to remove millions of illegal aliens. It would be the end of immigration enforcement in America and only serve to draw millions more illegal aliens with no way to remove them.  By halting immigration enforcement for all aliens who will arrive before June 2018, it ignores the lessons of 9/11 and significantly increases the risk of crime and terrorism.

It is an egregious violation of the four compromise pillars laid out by the President’s immigration reform framework. Instead of helping to secure the border as the President has repeatedly asked Congress to do, it would do the exact opposite and make our border far more open and porous. It would ensure a massive wave of new illegal immigration by exacerbating the pull factors caused by legal loopholes.  By keeping chain migration intact, the amendment would expand the total legalized population to potentially ten million new legal aliens – simultaneously leading to undercutting the wages of American workers, threatening public safety and undermining national security.

The changes proposed by Senators Schumer-Rounds-Collins would effectively make the United States a Sanctuary Nation where ignoring the rule of law is encouraged.

#1—Provides a Safe Enforcement-Free Haven for Over 10 Million Illegal Aliens

  • It eviscerates the authority of DHS to arrest, detain, and remove the vast majority of aliens illegally in the country by attempting to limit DHS enforcement by codifying a “priorities” scheme that ensures that DHS can only remove criminal aliens, national security threats and those who arrive AFTER June 30, 2018 creating a massive surge at the border for the next four months.
  • This immigration enforcement “holiday” until June 30, 2018 will show to the world we are not serious about enforcing our immigration laws as those who arrive here can just stay here consequence free, at a minimum until the next amnesty.
  • The amendment fails to address serious loopholes in immigration law on detention and removal authorities, including Zadvydas v. Davis.  The most egregious loopholes have required DHS to release aliens with final orders of removal – including dangerous convicted criminal aliens – into American communities if, because their country of origin refuses to accept them, we are unable to remove them in 180 days.
    • In Fiscal Year 2017, more than 2,300 aliens were released because of that court decision, and more than 1,700 of those were criminal aliens.
  • It does nothing to combat sanctuary jurisdictions, and does not enhance ICE’s detainer authority—the tool it uses to pick up and process aliens from the secure and controlled environments of jails and prisons – or indemnify local jurisdictions that seek to comply with detainers.  This forces ensures that local jurisdictions release criminals back into communities to re-offend.
    • According to a recent Harvard-Harris poll,[1] 80 percent of American voters share the common-sense view that cities that arrest illegal aliens for crimes should be required to turn them over to immigration authorities.
    • While noncitizens made up approximately 7.2 percent of the U.S. population in 2016,[2] they accounted for 41.7 percent of all federal offenders sentenced for felonies or Class A misdemeanors in that fiscal year. Even excluding all types of immigration offenses, noncitizens accounted for more than 20 percent of all federal offenders sentenced for felonies or Class A misdemeanors—nearly three times their share of the general population.
  • It does not fix any current removal loopholes that it make it difficult for DHS to remove criminal aliens and does not subject gang members to removability – a serious concern where many gang members enter the country as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) and are unable to be removed.
    • Last year, “Operation Raging Bull”, a law enforcement operation targeting MS-13 gang members, resulted in the arrest of 214 individuals in the United States—nearly one third of whom (64 individuals) had entered the country as UACs.

#2—Fails to Secure the Border

  • The amendment ties the hands of all the men and women of DHS who stand at the border attempting to make our nation more secure.
  • Leaves longstanding loopholes wide open, undermining DHS’s ability to remove aliens and perpetuating the catastrophic “catch and release” policy.  These loopholes create a dramatic pull factor for illegal immigration.
    • Fails to terminate the Flores Settlement Agreement, effectively ensuring continued surges in unaccompanied alien minors and family units.
      • Only 3.5 percent of unaccompanied minors apprehended are eventually removed from the United States.
    • Fails to address The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, which limits the DHS ability to promptly return UACs who have been apprehended at the border and creates additional loopholes.
      • Failing to close these loopholes creates untold risks for children who are routinely smuggled and trafficked as they seek to arrive in the United States.
  • Fails to ensure that drugs like fentanyl do not enter the U.S.
  • Fails to address much needed hiring and pay reforms that allow DHS to support the men and women on the frontlines.
  • Prevents DHS from building a Border Wall where it is needed through the imposition of unnecessarily onerous environmental and reporting burdens.
  • It does not provide any provisions to deter visa overstays (criminal designation, prompt removal, or bars to immigration benefits), enabling mass illegal immigration through temporary visa programs.
    • Visa overstays account for roughly 40 percent of all illegal immigration in the United States.

#3—Not a DREAMer Bill, But a Mass Amnesty Bill for Illegal Aliens of All Ages

  • Gives initial citizenship to a massive population of three million illegal aliens – and potentially many more as extended-family chain migrants.
  • In addition to the 3 million DACAs, it ensures a path to citizenship for their 6 million parents through the use of a faux-prohibition provision that is likely unconstitutional as well as administratively and judicially impossible to administer.
  • There are no real eligibility requirements. Much of the eligibility criteria can be waived.
  • Gives citizenship to criminal aliens: Many criminals can benefit from the DACA provision as the bars for criminals are overly narrow and the eligibility to waive criminal conduct for applicants is overbroad.
  • Expands maximum age of entry into the United States for DACAs to age 18— ensuring it applies to illegal aliens who have spent most of their lives in their home countries and who came to the United States recently and who are decidedly not children.
  • Grants immigration benefits to individuals who are not “DREAMers”: expands conditional permanent resident status to certain aliens in Temporary Protected Status who otherwise meet the eligibility requirements designed to address the DACA population.
  • Persons who are under the age of 43 years old TODAY are eligible to apply for DACA now – these are not children, and haven’t been for some time.
  • Additionally there is no maximum age limit: meaning that, a “DREAMer” who is eligible today could wait years before applying, thus we could have DACA “children” benefiting receiving citizenship when they are in their 60s and 70s.
  • Contains unworkable and dangerous confidentiality provisions, which hamstrings DHS’s ability to remove illegal aliens who do not meet eligibility requirements or commit fraud.
  • The bill creates a new definition of expunged records that contradicts current law and ensures that criminal aliens with expunged convictions can benefit from legalization.
  • Allows illegal aliens’ own statements – not verifiable documentation – to satisfy the DACA eligibility requirements creating an obvious enforcement loophole. This is the exact type of non-auditable visa program that the GAO continues to cite as irredeemable on its face.
  • Prevents the Secretary from denying applications for DACA applicants who appear to be a threat to public safety or national security concerns.
  • Anyone who claims to be eligible for relief is barred from removal, essentially a get out of jail free card.
  • The Schumer-Rounds-Collins proposal explicitly prevents DHS from removing anyone who is “enrolled in” school over the age of five. This would include teenage human smugglers, gang members, or criminal aliens.

#4—Expands Chain Migration

  • Fails to protect the economic security of millions of American workers and taxpayers by doing nothing to address unchecked extended family chain migration.
  • Under current law, illegal aliens are unable to legally bring over their foreign relatives through chain migration. By providing a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens while leaving chain migration intact across the entire U.S. immigration system, these individuals would then be able to bring over all of extended families through chain migration, who in turn could bring in their foreign relatives, potentially increasing the legalized population of aliens to 10 million.
  • A Princeton study found that every two new migrants sponsor, on average, seven additional relatives to come to the United States.

#5 Keeps the Visa Lottery

  • The bill does nothing to address the outdated and dangerous Visa Lottery program, let alone fulfill the Administration’s goal of ending it.
  • A report published by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) in 2007 found that the visa lottery system was vulnerable to fraud committed by and against lottery applicants.
    • The GAO report found difficulties in verifying applicant identities, which raised serious security concerns.
    • At some of the consular posts they reviewed the majority of visa lottery applicants had hired “visa agents” to enter the lottery.
  • In 2003, the State Department Office of Inspector General (OIG) authored a report that found the program was subject to widespread abuse.
    • The OIG found that despite restrictions against duplicate visa lottery submissions, thousands of duplicate submissions were detected each year.

The report asserted that identity fraud was endemic in the system and that it was commonplace for applicants to use fraudulent documents.

I cannot believe the Democrats are not reading the polls. the vast majority of Americans want to do away with the Immigration Lottery, improve border security, provide a solution for “dreamers” (an offensive term as it presumes Americans here legally are not dreamers), and sharply curtail chain migration. In addition, the majority of Americans want merit based immigration.

The preposterous trash bill, called the Schumer-Rounds-Collins Amendment, totally based on ideology, if accepted and passed would have trashed this country. The President is right in sending it back and citing he would Veto, this ominnus bill. It is a farce introduced by three Leftists, that would turn the rule of law to the Illegals.
It would handcuff the Homeland Security, gutting its ability to protect this country. It would not only place the ability to bring in millions by the DACA Illegals with chain migration. It would limit the ability to remove lawless illegals by deportation. Those three that wrote and submitted this piece of flawed legislation, should be ashamed of calling themselves Americans, by trying to hand over the rule of Law to those who would dare to invade this country Illegally. There is something mentally wrong with Schumer and Collins, who persist in bringing this country down to its knees, just like the miscreant president of eight years, Hussein the intended Destroyer of our Constitution, had he been successful of another term..which was toyed with. The Swamp will take years to clean, but faith in President Trump will be successful in doing just that. Thank God, that the heinous Pantsuit did not gain power, as she has tried along with Hussein to undermine our election and remove our elected President.

I don’t believe I voted President Trump in to take care of the DACA’s who if they get citizenship or permission to live here forever that means they are still in the jobs they have therefore not opening up the jobs they are holding to legals and U.S. citizens. How is that helping U.S. citizens who are capable of taking the jobs these illegals, non citizens are now holding on to. This is not what I voted President Trump in for. What Obama did making them DACAS is illegal according to our Constitution and needs to be treated as illegal and therefore the DACAs don’t exist as they are illegals. Return them and their parents to their countries of citizenship through their parents and they can use their free American education to bring their countries of citizenship up to levels that people can live in. If our American citizens left this country the second they ran into a problem this country wouldn’t be what it is today. Our citizens stayed and worked to build up our country. Maybe if DACA parents had stayed in their countries they could have worked to build their country up and would have not needed to come here taking U.S. citizens jobs.

But in order to accomplish their stupid aims they must import peoples who have always lived under the control of fools like Schumer and his party. A fine cure would be to deport ‘lil chuckie’ and kindred soles to Venezuela where their kindred spirit destroyed the richest country in S. America by using their same stupid ideas.

This country’s immigration policy is nothing but a joke to the socialist democrats. As a hard working tax paying American citizen who obeys our laws, I am sick and tired of these illegals being given a free pass at every turn. While I used to think a pathway to citizenship could be an option, I have seen that illegals will always be a financial drain on America, and these illegals will end up to be nothing more than generational welfare recipients who will exist as societal leeches, sucking away the lifeblood of our economy, while providing nothing good in return! I have reached a point where I believe that all illegals must be deported, and if they wish to return they must do so thru the legal immigration policy we have in place.

No path to citizenship until a law that cannot later be negated is passed that the wall will be built, no chain migration, no lottery, no sanctuary cities nor states and enforce immigration laws. If the Dems do not go for such a bill, let the DACA March date lapse and let the DACA recipients hold the DEMs accountable for not voting for the bill proposed by Trump administration.

Obama could have voted and passed DACA while he was in office as he had majority. Did not even bring it up. Now the Dems have been offered a proposition by Trump not 800,000, but 1 million 800,000 DACA recipients would have pathway to citizenship and they turn it down. If the Dems do not vote for this proposition, DACA recipients will hold them accountable… they, like Obama do not want the DACA recipients to receive this pathway to citizenship… they use the illegals as a political point filled with lies to get the liberals to re-elect them .

The President made an offer too good to refuse…to losers posing as D Senators. The Dems like Shumer who have been in office since they got out of college don’t know much about the County other than the Socialist manifesto that has become the Dem Party. I was a Dem when younger but they have become completely criminal and disgusting.

I now want to see the Pres step on their necks firmly, wait until the 18 elections are over because they will lose everything then when the unexpected happens. They truly deserve it!

I don’t care why they don’t get it. They have been stepping on the American Public’s necks for way too long and deserve what they have sown.

Collins just needs to ship out of the R Party as she is a sham of a Senator and needs to switch parties to become one of the lowly D’s who haven’t a shred of decency or honesty either for that matter. A truly sleazy bunch of R’s she belongs to.

Throw in a few other R’s with her because we are taking America back.

Judith Haanley and the rest of you President Trump haters.

This immigration mess that we are in, is not, repeat is not President Trump’s doings. If you want to blame someone, blame Obama’s ILLEGAL, UnConstitutional Executive Order that gave amnesty to illegal aliens. Every Democrat and every Republican in the Senate and House at the time that Obama violated his constituional authority giving amnesty to the so called DACA children need to own up to the fact that they shirked their duty and their Oaths of office by allowing Obama’s illegal E.O. to stand. My question to all of them, when is amnesty going to end. Congress has already passed seven (7) previous amnesties for illegal aliens and are now attempting to give the 8th amnesty. When are the going to wake up and comprehend that amnesty for illegal aliens does not end illegal immigration. Only a wall and STRICT ENFORCEMENT of our existing immigration laws and emplementing a Bio-Metric system to track Visa overstays will put and end to illegal immigration or at least will reduce it by about 90 per cent. BOTTOM LINE, BUILD THE WALL, SECURE THE BORDER AND POSITIVELY NO AMNESTY OR CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS AND/OR THEIR CHILDREN.
Vote any politician out of office that votes for amnesty for illegal aliens. Phone, fax or email your 2 Senators and Representative and let them know that if they vote for amnesty that you will fight tooth and nail to make sure they DO NOT GET RE-ELECTED.

We are not only a nation without borders due to the open Southern border, we are a nation without borders because of the 1965 Immigration Act that raised the yearly quota of legal immigrants from 250,000 per year to ONE MILLION per year. Add to that, the multitude of other ways to enter the U.S. and never leave and there in you have the reason why migrants don’t assimilate and become Constitution loving, freedom loving citizens, they come here and support Socialist programs and politicians they supposedly left behind when they migrated here. It is entirely impossible to vet the massive number of people coming to our country and there is no doubt there are people now coming from the Muslim countries where it is impossible to get information to vet them who mean us harm. As one example of those here who never intend to go home, there are tens of thousands from El Salvadore who came in 2001 after the earthquakes that occurred there as “refugees”. We have tens of thousands from Somalia, a “community” from which a number of second generation individuals have gone to places like Syria and Iraq to join ISIS.

We need to all but CLOSE the door and exercise extreme care of who we allow to come to our country. ALL illegal immigrants, regardless of how or when they came to America, should be deported. Those who wish to return should apply through the proper procedure, a procedure that needs to be repealed and replaced since the 1965 Immigration Act that increased the legal quota from 250,000 legal immigrants to 1 million has been a disaster. Visas of all kinds, including work visas need to be greatly reduced, restricted, or eliminated all together. Political and war related “refugees” should be relocated to safe areas close to their own countries, not given refuge in the U.S.

Around 1970, when the U.S. population was 200 million, there was a movement aimed at promoting stabilizing the population at or near that number. Unfortunately, it never got anywhere. If there is a count of non-citizens as well as citizens in the 2020 census, I think the number of people in the U.S. will be staggering when compared to the last count. The growth since the 1970 census already has been… A more than 64% increase in just 40 years by 2010. Not only has the quality of life in the U.S. suffered by the massive population growth, but the environmental impact has been even more negatively impacted. All of the efforts and restrictions on “pollution” have been offset but population growth.

I could go on, but there’s plenty of food for thought in what I’ve said already.

President Trump has been more than generous with the deal he has offered on immigration and boarder security. (In may humble opinion far too generous.) But Schumer and crowd want it all their way or nothing. So they deserve to get nothing. The vast majority of American voters can see through their ploy and will remember when it comes time to vote.

Most Americans and legalized immigrants do not want open borders and do not want the illegals that came into the USA during the obama occupation to remain here. Illegal is illegal and it is much cheaper for the USA to deport them then it would be to grant them amnesty and or citizenship. It’s already costing us a lot of money in welfare and medical costs.

The November midterm elections will allow us as a nation to correct some of the insanity and stupidity created by the election of Donald Trump. Clean house on current politicians, especially Conservative Republicans and isolate the insane moron in the White House. Isolate him so as to minimize the damage he has already done to this Country before it is too late! God help us all!!
