DACA! Plain and Simple!

Remember that DACA thing? This is the latest version that includes the 01/12/2018 update. At least it's a start and it might be something to look forward to provided our politicos quit playing politics and get serious about serving us, the citizens that elected them into office.

Here's some highlights from the linked article...

The bill:
  • Eliminates the Visa Lottery green card program
  • Eliminates Chain Migration and creates a renewable temporary visa for parents of citizens to unite families at no cost to taxpayers
  • Reduces legal immigration levels by about 260,000 a year – a decrease of about 25%
  • Reforms the agricultural guest worker program
  • Sends additional ICE agents to more high-risk embassies overseas to vet visitors and
  • immigrants
  • Provides additional technology, roads and other tactical infrastructure to secure the border
  • Adds 5,000 Border Patrol Agents and 5,000 CBP Officers
  • Requires full implementation of the biometric entry/exit system at all air, land, and sea ports of entry
  • Makes E-Verify Mandatory for all employers
  • Authorizes the Department of Justice to withhold law enforcement grants from sanctuary cities
  • Allows DHS to detain dangerous illegal immigrants who cannot be removed
  • Reduces asylum fraud by tightening the “credible fear” standard to root out frivolous claims and increases penalties for fraud/terminates asylum for individuals who voluntarily return home
  • Grants amnesty to DACA recipients by issuing a 3-year renewable visa with work permit
And here's today's update relating to the "progress" of this piece of legislation after some politicos reviewed the "gang of six" proposal. This "update" fails to address our POTUS Trump's priorities relating to immigration..

Given that, it appears there's still a lot of politicking to do. Given that Flake's involved I'm imagining it's going to take a long time. Flake doesn't seem to accept the fact that most of us Americans want our borders secured and our immigration properly regulated. I'm hoping he rethinks his departure plans and leaves earlier than expected. But I doubt that will ever happen.

"The proposal, presented by Sens. Durbin (D-Ill.), Flake (R-Ariz.), and Graham (R-S.C.) would not strengthen border security or interior enforcement, fails to end Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery, and would grant amnesty, not only to previous DACA recipients, but to all Dreamers and their parents as well."

And yet another failed, self serving stab at open door immigration supported by Flake, Graham and Durbin.
