The White House include:.
Severe penalties for state and local jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities on immigration enforcement, as well as the implementation of laws to compel and/or incentivize state and local law enforcement agencies to comply with detainers and cooperate with DHS on enforcement matters. .
Drastically increase the penalties for those who overstay or violate the terms of a visa, including barring visa overstays from immigration benefits for a set time period with no waiver..
Implement a legislative fix to retain custody of those whose home countries will not accept their repatriation beyond six months (Zadvydas); and require detention of aliens who entered without inspection or failed to maintain NIV status and have been charged with a crime that resulted in the death or serious bodily injury of another person..
Expand grounds of deportability to include gang members, those convicted of multiple drunk driving offenses or a single offense involving death or serious injury, and those who fail to register as a sex offender; expand the definition of "aggravated felony" by referring to "an offense relating to" each of the categories of crimes..
Expand the Department of State's authority to use fraud prevention and detection fees to combat all classes of visa fraud; ensure funding for the Visa Security Program and facilitate its expansion to all high-risk posts; strengthen laws prohibiting civil and criminal immigration fraud and encourage the use of advanced analytics to proactively detect fraud in immigration benefit applications.Most of the White House principles on interior enforcement can be tied to H.R. 2431, the ("Davis Act"). The Davis Act is an expensive bill that would enable President Trump to implement an immigration agenda that is singularly focused on punitive enforcement and on the mass detention and deportation of undocumented people, with no regard for the harm it would do to American communities. In addition to more personnel, the Davis Act will facilitate a force multiplier effect by giving additional authority to and encouraging local police and sheriffs to engage in immigration enforcement. Specifically, the bill authorizes police to arrest and detain anyone based solely on suspicion of being unlawfully present in the U.S. The Act requires compliance with detainers and prohibits localities from restricting their personnel from engaging in immigration enforcement in concert with ICE. Under this act, states and localities can adopt their own immigration penalty schemes like Arizona's SB1070 law, key provisions of which were struck down by the Supreme Court. The Davis Act also proposes a radical departure from existing immigration law by criminalizing unlawful presence and permitting the prosecution and incarceration of every undocumented individual at immense cost to American taxpayers. Mothers and fathers of the 4.5 million U.S. citizens who have at least one undocumented parent, would be subject to arrest, criminal prosecution, and removal under this Act, tearing apart families and achieving no legitimate law enforcement purpose. The Davis Act includes several provisions that deprive people of liberty and undermine due process and fairness. Additional mandatory detention categories are proposed, and the bill makes it difficult, if not impossible, for individuals to obtain release on bond. The Davis Act includes a number of provisions that would erode due process for individuals who have already been screened and admitted to the United States, and creates costly and burdensome vetting procedures in the adjudication of visas and immigration benefits.AILA Resources:.
The White House principles include the implementation of mandatory E-Verify for all employers and stiff penalties for failure to comply with E-Verify. These principles are closely aligned with H.R. 3711, the . AILA opposes the Legal Workforce Act as it would impose costly mandates on American employers to utilize an electronic verification system. The bill does not provide adequate protections for either businesses or workers. Every year large numbers of American citizens and others who are authorized to work are erroneously denied employment authorization by errors in the current pilot E-Verify system. Most are forced to wait weeks to resolve the problem and frequently lose wages or even job offers during the delay. In 2013, the Congressional Budget Office estimated that mandatory implementation of E-Verify would have increased the federal budget deficit by a staggering $30 billion. Moreover, mandating an employment verification system cannot be done in isolation without addressing other urgently needed immigration reforms. Unless Congress finds a way to legalize the status of the millions of unauthorized workers, making electronic employment authorization mandatory will disrupt major sectors of our economy including the agricultural industry.

The would establish a "merit-based" immigration system that prioritizes skills and economic contributions over family connections; end so-called "chain migration" by limiting family-based green cards to spouses and minor children; eliminate the "Diversity Visa Lottery"; and limit the number of refugees admitted to the U.S. These principles are closely aligned to S.1720, the introduced on August 2, 2017, by Senators Cotton (R-AR) and Purdue (R-GA), with the support of President Trump. The RAISE Act is an attack on legal immigration as the bill seeks to eliminate the legal immigration system as we know it and replace it with a points-based system that ignores the benefits of family unity and the needs of U.S. businesses. AILA strongly opposes the RAISE Act as it does nothing to reform our outdated immigration system, yet seeks to dramatically reduce the number of immigrants the U.S. welcomes each year. Among other things, the RAISE Act seeks to cut our legal immigration system by at least 50% over the next decade without a reasonable correlation to family reunification or the economic needs of our nation. The bill would eliminate all family-based immigration categories, except for spouses and children (under the age of 18) of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. The RAISE Act would also completely replace the employment-based immigration system with a narrowly focused and rigid points-based system that fails to take into account the business needs of U.S. employers. Furthermore, the bill would eliminate the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program and reduce the number of refugees admitted to the U.S. to just 50,000 per year, contrary to our nation's proud tradition of serving as a beacon of hope for people fleeing from violence and persecution.
