Committee OKs three Graham amendments

The Senate Judiciary Committee passed three amendments introduced by Senator Lindsey Graham, according to the Washington office of the South Carolina Republican from Oconee County. The committee yesterday accepted Graham’s amendments to a bi-partisan immigration bill. They require additional background checks on aliens petitioning for legal status from countries or regions deemed threats to U-S security. Another would terminate an individual’s asylum or refugee status in most cases when the person returns to his or her home country. A third Graham amendment requires visa overstay information be shared with federal law enforcement, intelligence, and national security agencies. The Homeland Security secretary could use that information to find and remove aliens unlawfully in the United States.
