Immigration Bill Legalizes Relatives & Previously Deported

image[6]Rep. Lamar Smith said that the senate immigration bill is even worse that feared, since it legalizes illegals’ relatives & people previously deported.

Quoted  “It’s hard to believe, but the Senate immigration bill is worse than we thought. Despite assurances, the border is not secured before almost everyone in the country illegally is given amnesty.  The bill guarantees there will be a rush across the border to take advantage of massive amnesty.”

“And the Senate proposal offers amnesty to far more illegal immigrants than we thought.  In addition to most of the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country, the bill offers to legalize the relatives of illegal immigrants outside the U.S. and even others who have already been deported back home. So current immigration laws are shredded.

“The Senate bill is bad news for the American people. The good news is that the House Judiciary Committee will come up with a better plan that improves our immigration system and puts the interests of American workers first.”

Keeping families together has, for a long time been a priority for all immigrant families. Many of these people who have been previously deported are low-priority cases. Such as people charged with simple traffic matters, which resulted in them being in ICE custody & getting removed from the country. Leaving behind their families, in most cases U.S Citizen children. They will now be able to come back to the US to be with the family they had to leave behind. Also, DREAMers will also be able to apply to come back to the US even if they have been deported. This is only fair since most of these young people had no chance to stay if they were in a removal proceeding before DACA.

This is great news for families that have been previously separated  We will have to see how this plays out in the end. Will they leave this in the bill or will Rep. like Lamar Smith debate this to be excluded from the final bill?
