house Bill H.R. 6136

Legal Status for Dreamers, $23 Billion for Border Security, and Addressing Family Separation

Argument in favor

This compromise bill provides legal status for 1.8 million Dreamers along with funding needed to secure the border, while addressing the issues of family separation and unaccompanied minors in addition to other worthwhile immigration reforms.

This bill was designed with the voices of members of Congress and their constituents in mind. No bill is perfect, including this one, but it does try offer solutions for all sides. Everyone must concede a little ground and put aside party agendas to start reforming a totally outdated and dysfunctional immigration system.

This is a no-brainer, a sovereign nation must know the number of non-citizens in their country in order to properly manage immigration policy. For too long Democrats and businesses have subordinated the individual rights of our citizens to the benefit of illegal non-citizens. People who want to immigrate to our country must come here through the legal process and prove that they are coming here to contribute to our nation and not be a drain on us hard working law-abiding citizens. Anything else is unsustainable. Build the wall!

I would prefer the original Goodlatte bill, but if there are not enough votes for that this is not a bad compromise. What does countable have this as passing the house? I’ve seen through other sources that it failed to pass the House.

Argument opposed

While there may be some parts of this bill worth supporting, spending $23 billion on border security and cracking down and sanctuary cities goes too far. Immigration reform should be piecemeal rather than comprehensive.

No. No wall, no “merit-based” immigration. Allow the immigration courts to handle these matters, not criminal courts. We need a separate, clean DACA bill that gives these people a clear path to citizenship.

$23 billion for a Wall? No. You can’t hold dreamers and innocent children hostage to get the “border security” Trump wants.

trump’s wall is like suggesting one of the most technologically-advanced nations on earth adopt a six-year-old’s fantasy solution against the boogieman. It is so insulting that we’re discussing funding a demagogue’s plans to make himself look tough on TV instead of deferring to experts and real solutions for immigration and security. Put informed people in charge again for protecting our nation. Make trump pay for his boogieman mumbo jumbo and leave taxpayers out of this! (PS—possible damage to animal migrations is worse itself than the benefits of a wall against immigrants/ trafficking).

    This bill is trying to hide funding for the wall and going after sanctuary cities behind “fixing” family separation. Quit lumping issues together to try and push them through, pull out the good bipartisan pieces, pass them, and debate and edit the rest like an actual congress.

    Let’s just say it for the infinitieth time: The wall will do nothing. Immigration reform, to be meaningful, needs to be both humane and human. Any Republican proposal is likely to fall short on at least one of these criteria, at least while the most xenophobic president in US history sits in the Oval Office.

    Not a dime to build a wall. It is nonsense to build a wall in the first place - but we were told Mexico was going to pay for it. The great deal maker couldn’t pull it off.

    We need a clean DREAM Act that doesn’t give $20+ million to please Trump.

    Stop trying the most useless and most expensive option. A wall is a waste of time and money and solves nothing.

    Yes, please. This bill addresses the issue of Kids brought to the country by their parents without directly benefitting the offenders (parents). It also provides for a physical border to eliminate the need for future “fixes”. It addresses the sanctuary city issue and provides for the removal of gang influences. I approve.

    I support this bill. Build the wall!! Put an end to sanctuary states and cities. The families that cross the border illegally need a one way ticket back to where they came from. If they are seeking asylum, they need to stay in Mexico.

    This is a no-brainer, common sense solution that has been long over-looked by both parties. Vote “Yeah” on this one!

    Border Patrol, after going through numerous tests, has determined that the wall would help in reducing illegal immigration. And counties cannot just block ICE access that’s just plain subversive and dangerous. And we need a merit-based system. So instead of giving visas to anyone, we prioritize those who benefit us the most.

    Clearly the Democrats are trying to bring in new voters because they've lost the American vote. The border must be sealed up or American values will fade. New arrivals, dreamers, etc. should not be allowed to vote for 10 years, until they can learn OUR politics, period
