                                Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that
                                   until the United States southern border is secured as
                                   confirmed by the governors and the legislatures jointly
                                   of the four southern border states, the House of Rep-

                                Whereas the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act
                                   (IRCA) expresses the sense of Congress that the immi-
                                   gration laws of the United States should be enforced vig-
                                   orously and uniformly;

                                   control the borders and ‘‘prevent and deter the illegal
                                   entry of aliens in the United States and the violation of
                                   the terms of their entry’’;
                                Whereas IRCA did not include any trigger to secure the bor-
                                   der before legalization;
                                Whereas the employment verification system established
                                   under IRCA failed to prevent the hiring of undocumented
                                   immigrants;
                                Whereas the Immigration and Naturalization Service and
                                   then the DHS failed to properly enforce the employer
                                   sanctions laws under IRCA;
                                Whereas ten years after the 1986 Immigration Reform and
                                   Control Act was passed the estimated number of undocu-
                                   mented aliens almost doubled, from 3.2 million to 5.8
                                   million. Ten years after that, the number almost doubled
                                   again, to 11.6 million;
                                Whereas the Congressional Budget Office projects that the

                                   gal immigrants and their U.S. born children will be living
                                   in the United States by 2023;
                                Whereas according to a 2010 Rasmussen poll 68 percent of
                                   likely voters think that securing the border is more im-
                                   portant than granting amnesty to illegal aliens;
                                Whereas President Obama previously promised to secure the
                                   U.S. border with Mexico;

                                Whereas a recent GAO report found that only 129 miles of
                                   the approximate 2,000 mile border between the U.S. and
                                   Mexico are under ‘‘full control’’; and
                                Whereas the non-partisan GAO also determined that less
