AILA: Damaging Bill Is a Bait-and-Switch on Immigration

Monday the Senate released bill text for a proposed bill that would fund President Trump’s border wall, but as AILA notes, it also provides only weak protections for a fraction of DACA and TPS recipients. It also includes many extreme provisions rolling back asylum protections, limiting future TPS protections, and more, that go far beyond what the president laid out in his recent speech. AILA Executive Director Benjamin Johnson stated, “Never has the adage ‘the devil is in the details’ held so true.” In this Quicktake, Director of AILA’s Government Relations Greg Chen discusses the bill and for more information, check out AILA’s policy brief. Urge your senator to vote NO this bill, which is scheduled for a vote this Thursday.
