 Support Builds for the Securing America’s Future Act


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.”

“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.”


The Daily CallerPowerful Republican Committee Wants Vote On Goodlatte’s Conservative DACA Bill

“The 150-member Republican Study Committee (RSC) announced Tuesday that it endorses the Securing America’s Future Act, which gives legal status to certain younger illegal immigrants in exchange for a host of conservative immigration reforms. Critically, the bill contains provisions on the three concessions demanded by President Donald Trump as part of an amnesty for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: border wall funding, limits on chain migration, and the end to the diversity visa lottery.”
