Expressing the sense of Congress that amnesty should not be granted to individuals who are in the United States, or its territories, illegally.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

March 14, 2002

Mr. KERNS submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Expressing the sense of Congress that amnesty should not be granted to individuals who are in the United States, or its territories, illegally.

Whereas in 2000, there were an estimated 8,000,000 illegal aliens living in the United States according to the Bureau of the Census;

Whereas the granting of amnesty under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 has not curtailed the flow of illegal aliens to the United States;

Whereas granting amnesty to illegal aliens would reward those who break the laws of the United States;

Whereas granting amnesty to illegal aliens would demonstrate that the United States is not committed to upholding and enforcing its laws;

Whereas granting amnesty to illegal aliens could encourage additional illegal immigration;

Whereas granting amnesty to illegal aliens would undermine the process of legal immigration into the United States;

Whereas it is vital to national security to ensure the integrity of the Nation’s borders;

Whereas the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, further demonstrated the necessity of securing the Nation’s borders; and

Whereas granting amnesty to illegal aliens would subvert the efforts of the Border Patrol, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the Customs Service, the Coast Guard, and other agencies that work to secure the Nation’s borders: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that amnesty should not be granted to individuals who are in the United States, or its territories, illegally.
