Gosar Introduces Americans not Aliens Act to Prohibit Work Permits for Illegal Aliens Under Removal Orders

Big Idea

  • The Department of Homeland Security has been issuing work permits to aliens with orders for removal
  • These aliens have already exhausted substantial government resources throughout the removal process
  • This creates a disincentive for the alien to depart or cooperate with their home country to obtain travel documents

Prescott, AZ – Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) issued the following statement after introducing the Americans not Aliens Act, legislation to prohibit the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from issuing work permits for aliens with orders for removal.

“Providing work permits to aliens who have been ordered removed from the United States is the very definition of insanity.  At a time when American citizens are struggling to find jobs, my legislation removes the incentives for aliens to ignore the rule of law and not return to their country of origin.

These aliens have already exhausted substantial government resources throughout the removal process and have ultimately been ordered removed from the United States by an immigration judge.  It’s time to close this loophole.  It’s time they go back to their home,” concluded Congressman Gosar.

Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) added, "it is hard to imagine that we would allow illegal aliens with deportation orders to obtain a work permit in the United States, yet this practice occurs regularly under the current administration. Congressman Paul Gosar’s common-sense bill will prohibit any removable aliens from receiving work permits. We applaud Congressman Gosar’s long and continuing leadership on this issue."

Original Cosponsors: Brian Babin (TX-36), Andy Biggs (AZ-05), Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Matt Gaetz (FL-01), Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Matt Rosendale (MT)

 

Background:

Under current regulations, an alien who has a final order of removal and who is temporarily released from DHS custody is generally eligible for an employment authorization document (EAD). This creates a disincentive for the alien to depart or cooperate with their home country to obtain travel documents to depart the United States.
