Introduce End Illegal Immigration Act
Current Status: FalteringAs of
"I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:
7. End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first."
- "Donald Trump's Contract With The American Voter," October 2016
If he is able to get Congress to fund the wall, Trump would still have to overcome a myriad of environmental and legal hurdles in order to move forward.
As of his 100th day in office, the Trump administration has introduced no legislation in this or any other matter.
