Today, the Secure and Succeed Act was introduced to the Senate floor, which addresses many of the immigration and border-related concerns that have been publicly debated for many years. This bill includes plans for improving border security through physical and technological means, increases manpower, ends catch and release, and provides a path to citizenship for DACA recipients, among other measures. It also once again makes Border Patrol agents fall under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
We will provide additional information on the bill as it progresses through Congress.
President Trump signed the Continuing Resolution (CR) to end the Government shutdown. All employees who were furloughed should be ready to report to work as scheduled. The CR included a provision that guarantees back pay for employees who were furloughed and may have lost pay due to the shutdown.
The U.S. Senate passed the Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the Government through February 8, 2018. THE PASSING OF THIS VOTE EFFECTIVELY ENDS THE SHUTDOWN. The Bill will now go back to the U.S. House of Representatives to be reconciled and then to the desk of President Trump for signature. Neither the U.S. House nor POTUS have indicated that they will oppose the CR.
