Would H.R. 3200 Cover Illegals or Not?

South Carolina Representative Joe Wilson apologized for his emotional outburst during the President’s address to a joint session of Congress, but he is not backing down from his claim that illegals could be covered under H.R. 3200. The President says this is not true. So, what is the truth?

According to a Congressional Research Service report, made available by the S.F. Examiner here, there is no explicit enforcement mechanism in the bill. The report says,

“Thus, it appears, absent of a provision in the bill specifying the verification procedure, that the Commissioner would be responsible for determining a mechanism to verify the eligibility of noncitizens for the credits.”

Thus it appears that the bill offers a way for illegals to either be covered or not be covered based upon who is the Commissioner appointed to oversee the plan. It is worth noting that an amendment was proposed by the Republicans to place enforcement in the bill, which provided for a way to identify those in the country illegally, but the Amendment was defeated by Democrats.

Since Joe Wilson’s outburst the left has been raising money to oppose him at an alarming rate. If you would like to contribute to help Representative Joe Wilson click on the link below.
