Davis-Oliver Act

President Trump is moving forward on immigration in spite of Democrats blocking his way on building the wall--

The Davis-Oliver Act would call for the hiring of over 10,000 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, broaden the definition of sanctuary cities to include those that don’t comply with immigration detainers, strip certain grants from those jurisdictions, and allow local law enforcement personnel to create and enforce immigration law consistent with federal law.

Being in the country illegally is currently a civil offense, but the legislation would make this a crime punishable by jail time. The Davis-Oliver Act would also make all immigrants in criminal street gangs deportable, and punish countries that don’t cooperate with deportation proceedings. The legislation will make drunk driving a deportable offense, and additionally increase penalties for immigration-related crimes such as passport fraud. [Daily Caller]
