Immigration concerns with the criminal justice reform bill
An analysis of the FIRST STEP Act (H.R. 5682) reveals that it could have an adverse impact on efforts to control illegal immigration and to deport criminal aliens. The legislation is likely to receive a floor vote in the House by the end of the month.
Reps. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) and Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced the criminal justice reform measure in the House.
