It’s not likely you have heard of H.R. 1505, The National Security and Federal Lands Protection Act (NSFLPA). This outline of what’s in HR 1505 will tell you why the media is keeping a lid on this bill.
NSFLPA will free our Homeland Security Department Border Patrol agents from short sighted and phony environmental laws that keep our borders porous and uncontrollable.
This 180-degree-turn in America’s approach to stemming the tide of illegal aliens sneaking into our country was introduced by Republican Congressman Rob Bishop of Utah. NSFLPA will wave enforcement of a litany of unnecessary and counterproductive liberal laws that have been destroying true conservation efforts for decades.
Under Bishop’s tough enforcement bill, the Department of Homeland Security’s work to protect our borders and coastlines within 100 miles of our borders would no longer be impeded by extraneous laws. In many states Border Patrols would be totally free to protect Americans from border to border. Freeing DHS officers to pursue illegal aliens into protected wildlife and forest areas can be accomplished by suspending enforcement of multiple laws.
H.R. 1505 would provide waivers of these laws….
