‘The House Judiciary Committee is taking up a bill this week that would make felons out of the vast majority of undocumented immigrants overnight’.
- ‘The bill would repeal the president’s November 20 immigration directives, which would give 5 million parents and DREAMers temporary legal protection and work authorization’.
‘Whereas the comprehensive reform plan passed by the Senate in 2013 would have put the 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the country on a pathway to citizenship while making strategic investments in our border security and fixing our legal immigration system, this bill would, among other provisions’:
‘Turn the civil penalty of being in the country without authorization into a criminal one, making felons out of the vast majority of the undocumented population overnight. (Secs. 315 and 316)’.
