This week twenty-one House Republicans introduced house bill H.R. 2952 which aims to speed up the time in which a detained illegal alien is deported out of the country.

Bill author Rep. Duncan Hunter of California wants to mandate the Department of Homeland Security expedite undocumented immigrants deportation.  The bill is in part a response to Obama’s ‘selective deportation’ policy that would review the deportation cases of almost 300,000 immigration detainees.  The new White House policy would allow some detainees to stay and criminal aliens to be deported. 

If deportation is expedited as this proposed law is requiring detainees would have less time to pursue avenues in which to ‘stay’ their removal from the U.S.  The bill would require the immediate removal of illegal aliens that have not been in the country for four years.

One of the bills sponsors is Bill Flores of Texas who identifies his family as having emigrated from Spain in 1725 via Spanish Texas that existed prior to Mexican Texas. He is staunchly opposed to amnesty for those that are here in the country illegally.
