AILA Doc. No. 16070603 | Dated July 6, 2016
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), urged lawmakers to oppose two bills that would undermine public safety and due process. The bills being considered in the Senate today, S. 3100, the “Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act” and S. 2193, the “Stop Illegal Reentry Act,” are in fact nearly identical to last year’s S. 2146, which the Senate already rejected.
AILA President William A. Stock noted, “These two bills take away local control over local law enforcement policy and were rejected by the Senate last year.

Neither of these bills gets us closer to that end.”
The American Immigration Lawyers Association is the national association of immigration lawyers established to promote justice, advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, advance the quality of immigration and nationality law and practice, and enhance the professional development of its members.
