    GOP Rep Explains How DACA Recipients Would 'Earn' Citizenship With His Bill

    GOP Rep Explains How DACA Recipients Would 'Earn' Citizenship With His Bill

    Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA) wants to see his USA Act reach the House floor for a vote. Short for the Uniting and Securing America Act, the bill would give DACA recipients a path to citizenship.

    The USA Act represents a real bipartisan compromise that will provide a permanent legislative solution for Dreamers. Broader than just DACA recipients, the USA Act applies to all Dreamers. With a legally-defined status, these individuals would be able to remain in America while working towards full citizenship. This means they could continue to work, pursue a degree, enlist in our military and otherwise fully plan their lives without the fear that their futures could be destroyed by an administrative decision.

    The bipartisan legislation has 50 original co-sponsors, with 25 members from each party. It was introduced in the Senate by Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Chris Coons, (D-DE).


    In an interview on CNN Tuesday, Denham pushed back at critics who say his bill is blanket amnesty. The USA Act is an "earned" pathway to citizenship, he explained. DACA recipients can still go to school and serve in the military, the latter being "the quickest way" to citizenship.


    Of course, the No. 1 thing on conservatives' mind is border security. Denham promised his bill includes provisions to give border patrol agents the tools they need "to achieve operational control of the border by 2020." It also calls for the Department of Homeland Security "to submit a detailed, mile-per-mile assessment of the southern border and make recommendations for which physical barriers, levees or technology will be most successful on each mile and the cost to implement the recommendations."


    Denham asked for compassion for Dreamers who only know America as their home, particularly in his state of California, which has the largest population of DACA recipients.


    "It's the right thing to do," he said on Tuesday.


    Democrats like Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) are fans of Denham's legislation and urge GOP leadership to allow votes on it. However, she lamented that conservatives are holding House Speaker Paul Ryan "hostage" and blocking any consideration of the immigration bills.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    This bill provides conditional permanent resident status for an alien meeting specified requirements, including having entered the United States when younger than 18 years old and residing in the United States since December 31, 2013.


    An individual may apply to have such conditional basis removed after meeting specified eligibility requirements.

    The bill repeals provisions that deny an unlawful alien eligibility for higher education benefits on the basis of residence within a state unless a U.S. citizen or national is eligible for such benefits without regard to whether such citizen or national is such a resident.


    DHS shall: (1) deploy the most practical and effective technology available in order to achieve situational awareness and operational control along the U.S. border; (2) submit to Congress a comprehensive southern border strategy to achieve border control; and (3) begin eradicating the carrizo cane plant and salt cedar along the Rio Grande River.


    DHS may construct new ports of entry along the northern and southern borders.


    The bill establishes Operation Stonegarden in DHS to provide border security grants to law enforcement agencies in border or maritime border states that are involved in U.S. Customs and Border Protection operations


    DHS shall establish a two-year grant program to improve emergency communications in the southern border region for individuals who are at risk of violence and lack cellular and LTE network service.


    The number of immigration judges is increased.


    The President shall designate a senior official to coordinate federal and international efforts to strengthen citizen security, the rule of law, and economic prosperity in Central America.

    Bull! It puts those here illegally ahead of those who are waiting to come here legally! The proper way to "earn" citizenship is to apply for it, learn English, and wait your turn!

    The only right thing to do is get your ass the hell out of office.

    If you have so much compassion for the illegal alien law-breakers over American citizens,
    then you have no business holding office and no business being in America.

    Move to Mexico!
