Congressional Hearing Today on Bill to Curtail Obama Administration Immigration Powers | Feet in 2 Worlds · Immigration news · Immigration reform · Immigrant communities: "The pointedly titled “Hinder the Administration’s Legalization Temptation Act“ (HALT Act) is a bill introduced by Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) that would suspend certain laws protecting an immigrant’s right to stay in the U.S. until January 21, 2013, which is the final day of President Obama’s current term of office. The name suggests that President Obama is tempting unauthorized immigrants to stay in the U.S., or that the administration is tempted to legalize the status of unauthorized immigrants. Either way, the idea is to stop “temptation” in its tracks, by aiming a pistol at the discretion of both the executive and judicial branches in immigration cases.
A hearing on the bill is scheduled this afternoon (July 26) by the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement."
