Border security.

Border security. A bill (H.R. 3534) introduced by Rep. Thomas Tancredo (R-CO) would suspend the visa waiver program until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) fully implements an automated entry-exit system and the use of biometric machine readers and passports.

The bill would also establish criminal penalties for an illegal alien's unlawful presence. H.R. 3534 would also increase civil and criminal penalties for document fraud and false statements of citizenship.

Unlike other border protection bills, H.R. 3534 would not provide amnesty to illegal aliens. Instead, the bill would require the DHS to create an electronic employment verification system to track guest workers.

H.R. 3534 has five cosponsors and has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, and Claims; the House Ways and Means Committee; the House Government Reform Committee; the House Education and the Workforce Committee; and the House International Relations Committee.
