H.R. 2213: Anti-Border Corruption Reauthorization Act of 2017

On 6/8/17, H.R. 2213 was received in the Senate and referred to the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

On 6/7/17, the House passed H.R. 2213 on a 282 to 137 vote, after rejecting Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham's (D-NM) amendment 1 on a 179 to 238 vote. Grisham's amendment would require CBP to complete a risk assessment of the population that would receive waivers under the bill and complete an evaluation and pilot of the Test for Espionage, Sabotage and Corruption.

AILA urged Congress to vote against H.R. 2213.

On 5/3/17, H.R. 2213 was ordered to be reported to the House, as amended by Thompson amendment 1.

On 4/27/17, Representative Martha McSally (R-AZ) introduced the Anti-Border Corruption Reauthorization Act of 2017 (H.R. 2213) to allow U.S. Customs and Border Protection to waive polygraph examination requirements for applicants.
