Background:

The LIBRE Initiative is non-partisan grassroots organization committed to helping the Hispanic community break down barriers so that they can achieve success and live out the American Dream. Among the group’s priorities is working with lawmakers, on both sides of the aisle, to improve our country’s immigration system.

If enacted, this bill would:

  • Enhance the processing speed and screening of asylum seekers by expanding capacity and staffing in our immigration system.
  • Provide protections that improve the safety for migrant children with improved vetting of sponsors and regular inspections of facilities.
  • Allocate adequate resources to improve processing of migrants.
  • Streamline credible fear determination and asylum decisions through a pilot program.
  • Establish at least 4 regional processing centers in high traffic sectors of U.S. Border Patrol.
  • Mandate HHS conduct regular inspections of facilities providing custody to UACs creating efficiencies while keeping unaccompanied children safe.
  • Authorize the hiring of additional border personnel.
  • Enhance Congressional reporting and oversight.
