Recently the handling of civil immigration detainers by local law departments has been heavily scrutinized.
AILA Doc No. 13100402 | Dated October 2, 2013
On 10/2/13 House Democrats introduced H.R. 15, “The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.” As of 10/04/13 the bill had 152 co-sponsors, all Democrats.
H.R. 15 is a comprehensive immigration reform bill modeled on Senate bill S.744, but replaces the controversial "border-surge" amendment with the McCaul bipartisan border security bill that passed unanimously out of the House Homeland Security Committee. (AILA Doc. Nos. 13060647, 13062165.)
