The McCain-Coons Proposal Would Increase Illegal Immigration, Surge Chain Migration, Continue Catch and Release, and Give a Pathway to Citizenship to Convicted Alien Felons: McCain-Coons ignores the recommendations made by the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) front-line operators.

#1 Fails To Secure the Border

  • The McCain-Coons proposal does not authorize a single penny for appropriations for border security, ensuring that our Nation’s border is never secured or our national security protected.
  • Rather than securing the border, the McCain-Coons proposal requires the DHS to submit a strategy on border security to Congress— something that DHS has already done.
    • DHS submitted its border security strategy months ago after hearing from its front-line men and women and sent that plan to Congress in the form of the White House’s immigration framework. Rather than implementing DHS’ strategy, the McCain-Coons proposal completely ignores it and instead asks DHS to submit another, redundant plan.  This is an insult to the expert men and women who spent thousands of hours putting together the plan that the McCain-Coons proposal summarily rejects.
  • The McCain-Coons proposal handcuffs immigration operators while refusing to provide new authorities, such as granting officials access to federal lands or border construction waiver authority.
  • The McCain-Coons proposal fails to close numerous legal loopholes in our immigration system, like leaving “catch and release” for family units and unaccompanied alien minors fully in place.
