A group of House Republicans has drafted an ambitious immigration bill which offers a token amnesty in exchange for a deep reform of immigration rules to ease deportations, promote civic integration, end chain migration, end the visa lottery, build a border wall and raise Americans’ wages.

Bill - Authors - Wall - Street - Journal

The bill is described by the authors in a Wall Street Journal article:

A priority of our legislation is to increase the security of the southern border. Our bill would provide $30 billion to build a wall, to invest in new technology, and to improve, modernize and expand ports of entry.

It would provide for the construction of additional ports of entry and a full implementation of the biometric entry-exit system, while authorizing the National Guard to provide aviation and intelligence support.

Bill - GOP - Members - Virginia - Rep

The bill was developed by four influential GOP members. They are Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who chairs the judiciary committee, and Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, who chairs the House’s homeland defense committee. The bill was also authored by Rep. Raul Labrador and Rep. Martha McSally.

The article also says the draft law will reform the myriad laws which help migrants use to prevent their deportation:
