ABSTRACT

Fact Sheet: H.R. 3004, Kate's Law [factsheet]   [open pdf - 343KB]

From the Factsheet: "H.R. 3004 is another anti-immigrant, enforcement-only proposal that represents yet another step in President Trump's Mass Deportation plan. The bill significantly expands the federal government's ability to prosecute individuals for illegal re-entry and attempted re-entry, creating a draconian enforcement scheme with no exceptions. For example, the bill would change the law to allow the prosecution of asylum seekers or victims of human trafficking (even those without criminal records) who voluntarily present themselves at the border to request protection. Indeed, the bill's changes would absurdly even allow the prosecution of individuals who seek to reenter the country with legal authorization to do so."
