Drafted in secret and repeatedly delayed, the Gang of Eight bill was released early this morning. FAIR’s Government Relations team is currently going through the bill in detail, but they created a helpful 1-page summary of what the bill contains.
While the Gang of Eight ignored the American people in drafting this bill, FAIR believes this process should be open and allow enough time to evaluate this 844-page bill. Help us review the bill and make notes for any particular passage or section you want to highlight. From there, please visit our Facebook page, and tell us your thoughts.
The bill was only introduced hours ago, and consider what we know is already in it:
- Provides amnesty for nearly all illegal immigrants within six months of enactment;
- Makes eligible for citizenship in five years illegal aliens who entered the country before the age of 16 and prior to 2012;
- Weakens enforcement measures that are ALREADY in current laws; and
- Allows tech companies like Facebook to hire cheaper, overseas workers before Americans.
