  • US Authorities Introduced a Bill to Abolish the Green Card and strengthen the Wall on Mexican Border

WASHINGTON (FNI) - Republican Party introduced the Immigration bill in the US Congress. Among other things, the law should provide funding for the construction of a barrier on the border with Mexico. The bill, entitled ‘Securing America’s Future Act’, includes the strengthening of border protection, the abolition of the green card lottery and family reunification restrictions, said Bob Goodlatte, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to Washington reporters.

According to the congressman, the project of new immigration law also provides measures against so-called refugee towns, which refuse to take measures against illegal migrants.

However, the document does not regulate the rules for granting American citizenship to so-called “dreamers” - those who illegally entered the United States before the age of 16 and subsequently received education and work.

However, the proposed immigration legislation currently has little chance to pass through the Congress without amendments. Even if the House of Representatives adopt this document, the Senate could reject it, which requires at least nine democrats to approve.

Combating illegal migration in the US was one of the main election promises of the current president, Donald Trump. Republican Party introduced the Immigration bill in the US Congress.
