Core Provisions: This resolution calls for the mandatory use of the E-Verify program by employers of workers within the United States as well as enforcement policies that hold both employers and employees responsible for violations of United States immigration law. The resolution also states that it is a “critical responsibility” of the Federal Government to install and sustain border infrastructure and manpower to control the United States borders and protect from unauthorized passage of persons or contraband. Additionally, the resolution states that no immigration reform adopted by Congress should legalize, condone, or grant amnesty for the otherwise unlawful entry or presence of individuals in the United States.

Status: Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and twenty-one co-sponsors introduced the resolution on January 21, 2010. It was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary and the Committees on Education and Labor, and Homeland Security on the same day.
