Goodlatte talks Immigration Reform on The Ingraham Angle

Published

on

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) appeared on The Ingraham Angle to discuss his bill, the Securing America’s Future Act (H.R. 4760), and efforts to bring the so-called “queen of the hill” resolution to the House floor, allowing for House consideration of four immigration bills.

On the Securing America’s Future Act:

“It addresses the DACA issue in a fair way but only in exchange for making sure that we don’t let this problem continue in the future.”

On the “queen of the hill” discharge petition:

“Why would we turn control over to the Democrats? … The risk is that you will get an unbalanced bill where you address DACA only.”

Background: Earlier this year, Goodlatte introduced the Securing America’s Future Act (H.R. 4760). This bill bolsters enforcement of existing immigration law, makes important reforms to our legal immigration programs, secures the border, and provides a legislative solution for the current beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Details on the Securing America’s Future Act can be found here.

    Goodlatte’s bill also cuts LEGAL immigration levels. It is an anti immigrant bill that will hurt local communities and employers.
