Immigration Bill Fails to Pass House, but Progress Made
Updated: Oct 18, 2018
The Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018 would have provided legislation to secure the border, end family separations at the border, and provide a conditional pathway for about 1.8 million Dreamers to earn their legal status.
Unfortunately, the bill failed to pass in the House last week when a minority of Republican representatives joined all the Democrat representatives in voting against it.
I want to thank our Texan lawmakers in Washington who supported the bill, Congressmen Jeb Hensarling, Joe Barton, Kevin Brady, Michael McCaul, Michael Conaway, Mac Thornberry, Bill Flores, for their efforts to pass this first step for sensible immigration reform. Although the bill failed to pass, some progress was made because our lawmakers now have close to 300 pages of immigration reform legislation to work with.
If you agree with me and President Trump that our nation needs a legislative fix to its broken immigration system that will not only secure the border and increase our national security, but will ensure alien families are not separated while they are detained, and will provide a way for Dreamers to earn their legal status so they can continue contributing to our economy, please join me in contacting your lawmaker to make sure your voice is heard.
If your congressman voted in favor of the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018, tell them you have their back and encourage them to keep up the good work.
If your congressman voted against the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018, ask them why, and tell them that you want real solutions to the immigration-related problems our nation is currently facing.
God bless you for reading this, and may God move our congressmen to stand up and vote for sensible immigration reform.
Require them to earn legalization. Require them to work for employers that deduct and match taxes. It is not complicated. ID them and Tax them!!
