Sen. Paul Introduces ‘No New Pathway’ Amendment to Immigration Reform Bill

June 20, 2013 in Politics & Elections

On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul introduced a fourth amendment to S.744, the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill, that would remove the new and exclusive visa category and pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. The ‘No New Pathway to Citizenship’ amendment expands existing work visa categories instead of creating a new Registered Provisional Immigrant status. This updated work visa will not give any individual a new pathway to citizenship; rather they will be treated as if they are in line in their home country. No preference will be given to those on a work visa over individuals who are in line and outside the borders of the United States.
In addition to ‘No New Pathway to Citizenship,’ Sen. Paul intends to offer the following amendments:
‘Secure the Vote’ Amendment
Sen. Paul’s ‘Secure the Vote’ amendment ensures that individuals on work visas or given status under the bill are not allowed to vote in federal elections until they become citizens. The amendment will provide new procedures to encourage states to check that individuals gaining status or a work visa are not registered to vote.
‘Secure the Treasury’ Taxpayer Protection Amendment
Sen. Paul’s ‘Secure the Treasury’ amendment will provide further protections for taxpayers against individuals in a new immigration status from becoming dependent on the welfare state. This amendment will prevent individuals in Registered Provisional Immigrant status from getting access to Obamacare and welfare.
