Washington, D.C. – Last evening, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) appeared on The Ingraham Angle to discuss his bill, the Securing America’s Future Act (H.R. 4760), and efforts to bring the so-called “queen of the hill” resolution to the House floor, allowing for House consideration of four immigration bills.
On the Securing America’s Future Act:
“It addresses the DACA issue in a fair way but only in exchange for making sure that we don’t let this problem continue in the future.”
On the “queen of the hill” discharge petition:
“Why would we turn control over to the Democrats? … The risk is that you will get an unbalanced bill where you address DACA only.”
Background: Earlier this year, Chairman Goodlatte, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas), House Judiciary Committee Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee Chairman Raúl Labrador (R-Idaho), and House Homeland Security Committee Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee Chairwoman Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) introduced the Securing America’s Future Act (H.R. 4760). This bill 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 program.
