Alternate Title: H. Rept. 109-345: Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005

"The purpose of H.R. 4437, the 'Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005, is to ensure the proper enforcement of the current immigration laws, create additional mechanisms to prevent illegal immigration, assist in the prohibition of hiring illegal immigrants, and to enhance border security...The presence of large numbers of illegal aliens in the United States demonstrates that Americas immigration laws are not being effectively enforced. A contributing factor to this lack of enforcement has been deficient resources. Congress responded to this inadequacy by including provisions in the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 7 that authorized over a 5-year period an additional 10,000 Border Patrol agents, an increase of 40,000 immigration detention beds, and an additional 4,000 immigration investigators. Another factor that has contributed to the large number of illegal aliens within the United States is a lack of strong enforcement priorities by current and past administrations...The 'Border Protection, Antiterrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005 contains measures that address these important concerns."
