We MUST Mobilize to Oppose HR 4437, Rep. Sensenbrenner’s immigration enforcement bill! AILA is joining with the nation’s most influential immigration advocacy groups to oppose HR 4437 because it:

Could make YOU a criminal; HR 4437 will allow the government to prosecute almost any American who has regular contact with the undocumented.

Will disrupt the economy and destabilize U.S. workers; HR 4437 seeks to drive out 7 million undocumented immigrant workers, consequently disrupting the economy, with no corresponding increase in security or legality. HR 4437 will create an Employment Eligibility Verification System (EEVS) that could severely limits workers’ claims, including prohibiting class action lawsuits against the government, and will displace millions of documented workers—U.S. citizens and legal residents alike.

Denies due process and citizenship to lawful permanent residents; HR 4437 limits judicial review of executive branch decisions (DHS), violates the constitutional guarantee of due process and separation of powers, and, most importantly, strips the courts of their role of protecting the individual against excessive governmental power.

Divides families; HR 4437 will separate more American families with its excessive deportation authorities.

HR 4437 is an attack on U.S. Immigration Policy, not an answer
Enforcement-only legislation like HR 4437 and the legislation that preceded it has created the largest undocumented population in our nation’s history. We can’t enforce our way out of the catastrophe that is our current immigration system. Our broken system demands a comprehensive, workable solution that restores the rule of law, with fair rules that are evenly enforced, not expansive enforcement that can never be implemented.
