IB Summary: According to Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA): "It is time to move towards an immigration policy that serves our national interest and puts Americans’ jobs, safety, and sovereignty first...Americans are rightfully concerned that our government is turning a blind eye to ending visa programs that present a clear national security risk, allowing unsustainably high levels of unskilled immigration to persist, and harming U.S. workers by forcing them to compete for jobs with illegal aliens."
Status: Introduced in House on 12/13/2017. Referred to the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.
