U.S. Congressman Paul C. Broun, M.D. achieved a perfect score on the Immigration Reduction Report Card issued by Americans for Better Immigration. Americans for Better Immigration (ABI) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization which lobbies Congress for reductions in immigration numbers. Broun's 100% score is the highest in the entire United States Congress, and he is the only member of Congress to have achieved a perfect score for his legislative career. The "subjects" Broun was graded on include Chain Immigration, Visa Lottery, Anchor Baby Citizenship, Border Control, and Interior Enforcement.
"I am fully committed to reversing the problem of illegal immigration and ensuring the integrity of our nation's borders," said Broun. "We can not continue to allow our government to look the other way when it comes to dealing with illegal aliens. I am adamantly opposed to any form of amnesty. I will work not only to prevent the passage of any legislation that would provide a path to citizenship to illegal aliens, but I will also work to deny them access to the economic spigot that draws illegal aliens to our country. Our safety and our very sovereignty are at stake."
Last week, the Committee on Science and Technology, of which Congressman Paul Broun is a member, unanimously passed out of committee the "Hall Border Security Bill" or H.R. 3916. This legislation supports the development of technologies to assist our border patrol agents. Broun is an original sponsor of H.R. 3494, The Charlie Norwood CLEAR Act of 2007, which mandates the federal government to pick up every illegal alien apprehended by local authorities. Broun is also a cosponsor of H.R. 4088, the Secure America Through Verification and Enforcement (SAVE) Act of 2007, and H.R. 997, The English Language Unity Act, which would make English the official language of the United States. Broun is working on drafting legislation which would give employers, landlords, school systems and social workers the tools that they need to verify the legal status of an immigrant seeking a job, seeking housing, schooling, or other public assistance.
