The Immigration Regularization and Border Security Act

Email Email Print

If it passes, it should be called Rubio-Labrador Act for short, because those are the two key GOPers who will make it so if it happens.

The New York Times has the latest on the emerging details of the Senate draft.  Good news:

The part of the bill expected to draw the most controversy is a 13-year pathway to citizenship for immigrants who have been living here illegally. In an effort to make that proposal acceptable to Republicans who fear that it could unleash a new wave of illegal immigration, the senators placed a series of markers along the pathway, called triggers, that would require the Department of Homeland Security to spend as much as $5.5 billion over 10 years to increase enforcement and extend fencing along the Southwest border. (emphasis added.)

Key details: Where and when will the “extended fencing” get built.  Maps, constructions schedules, “notwithstanding other law” provisions, please, or the bill will be DOA in the House.  Border fencing –real, double-side fencing with access roads– is the key, not “virtual fencing,” not drone.  Honest-to-God fencing that covers at least half the border, along with iron-clad guarantees it will get built before rgeularization kicks in.
