H.R. 4760, the Securing America’s Future Act, 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 (DACA) program. The Securing America’s Future Act was introduced on January 10, 2018.
“The American people have been waiting a long time for their leaders to step up, get the job done, and better protect America. It’s time to deliver.”
Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen: “I appreciate the leadership of Chairmen Goodlatte and McCaul, Representatives Labrador and McSally and key staff in crafting this bill. The legislation introduced today reflects many of the policy principles and priorities identified by DHS’s frontline personnel which the Administration has advocated for this past year. I look forward to working with Members as they consider this and other legislation that will help us secure our borders, provide necessary enforcement authorities, and end diversity visas and extended family chain migration. Collectively, these elements are significant factors when it comes to protecting Americans and the Homeland.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders: “President Donald J. Trump is grateful to Chairman Goodlatte, Chairman McCaul, Congressman Labrador, and Congresswoman McSally for introducing immigration legislation that would accomplish the President’s core priorities for the American people. The President looks forward to advancing legislation that secures the border, ends chain migration, cancels the visa lottery, and addresses the status of the DACA population in a responsible fashion.”
Wall Street Journal Opinion: The House Chairmen’s Plan for Immigration Reform
“Americans have been debating how to best fix the country’s immigration system for decades. Congress has a unique opportunity to act now, before the country ends up with another large population who crossed the border illegally as children. Let’s take this historic moment to come together and support vital legislation that provides common-sense, reasonable solutions.”

“The Securing America’s Future Act clearly reflects public opinion, and the net effect of the bill as introduced would be far better than maintaining the immigration status quo.”
