Reps. Kratovil and Chaffetz
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) has introduced a bi-partisan House Resolution along with Rep. Frank Kratovil (D-Md.) and 20 other House Members that would express the House's intent to:
  1. mandate the nationwide use of E-Verify,
  2. secure the borders, and
  3. prevent any amnesty as part of an immigration reform bill.

The list of cosponsors for the Bipartisan Reform of Immigration through Defining Good Enforcement Resolution (H.Res.1026) includes:

  • John Barrow (D-Ga.)
    Bobby Bright (D-Ala.)
    Travis Childers (D-Miss.)
    Mike Coffman (R-Colo.)
    John Fleming (R-La.)
    Gregg Harper (R-Miss)
    Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.)
    Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.)
    Steve Kagen (D-Wis.)
    Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.)
    Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.)

    Patrick Murphy (D-Penn.)
    Glenn Nye (D-Va.)
    Pete Olson (R-Texas)
    Bill Posey (R-Fla.)
    Phil Roe (R-Tenn.)
    Heath Shuler (D-N.C.)
    Gene Taylor (D-Miss.)

H.Res.1026 reads, in part, as follows:
Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the continued peace, prosperity, liberty, and national security of the United States and its people depend upon the rule of law and credible and effective immigration enforcement policies which both welcome lawful immigrants and non-immigrants and also prevent the unlawful entry or unlawful continuing presence of foreign persons. . . .
