TRUE Enforcement: More than Just a Fence

Comprehensive Measure Gains Momentum With 20 Original Sponsors

The TRUE Enforcement and Border Security Act of 2005 continues to gain momentum in Congress. The measure, which is moving toward introduction this week or next, is about more than building a fence for border enforcement. "I build fences. Nine-tenths of this bill is related to all the other things: the magnet of jobs, the need for more prosecutors and assistant U.S. attorneys for immigration issues. All of those came from my colleagues. This is a bringing together, a comprehensive package . . . a function of the creativity and capability of lots and lots of members of the House and the Senate," said Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) at last week's news conference about the bill. Watch the video of that news conference. As more members of Congress learn about TRUE Enforcement, they are signing on to become co-sponsors of this important legislation.

At least 20 House members have signed on to become original sponsors of this legislation. To read more about what TRUE Enforcement does, take a look at FAIR's PDF describing the different titles of the bill, available here.

If you haven't contacted your members of Congress to ask for support for TRUE Enforcement, now is the time. FAIR and the immigration reform movement have a great opportunity with TRUE Enforcement to get a comprehensive immigration bill passed. As Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) said last week, "I want to thank FAIR and the other groups that worked very hard on this legislation . . . This bill will say no to illegal immigration . . . It will say no to catch and release policy and replace it with catch and detain policy." See FAIR's action alert to send a fax to Congress today in support of TRUE Enforcement
