Each of these three does not address all of the categories, but it is a good comparison.
Rep. Tom Tancredo has also working on legislation, Rewarding Employers that Abide by the Law and Guaranteeing Uniform Enforcement to Stop Terrorism (REAL GUEST) Act of 2005, that directly impacts temporary workers, and their employment.
My previous post was about the Bill introduced by Rep. Culberson:
Today, U.S. Representative John Culberson and 47 original cosponsors introduced H.R. 3622 to create the Border Protection Corps made up of citizen volunteers working as sworn law enforcement officers under the command of the Governors of the border States and working “in cooperation with State and local law enforcement officials…and the United States Border Patrol.”
Rep. Culberson's Bill concerns enforcement of existing immigration policies relevant to border control.
These are real problems, concerning real people, and we need real solutions. Lets get to work!
