Senate Republicans To Propose Comprehensive Piece of Shit Comprehensive, Real Enforcement Reform

Don't get excited. I doubt there's a majority in our own caucus for this, nevermind in the entirety of the Democrat-controlled Senate.

Still. Baby steps. Baby frigging steps.

Senate Republicans are set to announce Wednesday the hardest-hitting package of immigration enforcement measures seen yet — one that would require jail time for illegal immigrants caught crossing the border, make it harder for them to open bank accounts and compel them to communicate in English when dealing with federal agencies.

...

One would discourage states from issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants by docking 10 percent of highway funding from states that continue to do so. Another would extend the presence of National Guard on the border and a third would end language assistance at federal agencies and the voting booth for people with limited English ability.

A bill by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who is leading the effort, would impose a maximum two-year jail sentence on someone caught crossing the border for a second time.

…Other bills in the package would:

• Block federal funding from cities that bar their police from asking about immigration status.

Give the Department of Homeland Security the authority to use information from the Social Security Administration to target illegal immigrants.

• Require construction of 700 miles of fencing along the Southern border, not including vehicle barriers. [ed.: Counting vehicle barriers as part of the human-traffic-stopping fence is a cheap trick the open borders cocksuckers keep trying to play -- and I include Bush and McCain in that description.]

• Impose sanctions on countries that refuse to repatriate their citizens.

• Deport any immigrant, legal or illegal, for one drunken-driving conviction.

• Enable local and state police to enforce federal immigration laws

None of this will pass, but at least it is pushing towards border security and far, far away from amnesty and open borders.
