    3 Reps. to Introduce Res. Affirming State, Local Rts.-Immig

    Miller, Myrick and Smith to Introduce Resolution Affirming State and Local Rights to Enforce Immigration Laws

    Reps. Gary Miller (R-Calif.), Sue Myrick (R-N.C.), and Lamar Smith (R-Texas) are introducing a resolution to express the sense of the House of Representatives that state and local governments have inherent authority to assist in the enforcement of federal immigration laws.
