Title: Stop Illegal Reentry Act

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on a bill that increases the maximum prison term for an undocumented immigrant who reenters the United States after being denied admission or deported.

Highlights:

  • Authorizes an increase in penalties for undocumented immigrants who reenter the United States and have already been deported from the country (Sec. 2).
  • Specifies that the Secretary of Homeland Security may imprison an undocumented immigrant that was found to have crossed into the United States after being deported once before to a period up to 10 years (Sec. 2).

NOTE: INVOKING CLOTURE REQUIRES A 3/5 MAJORITY OF THE SENATE. IT IS NOT A VOTE ON THE PASSAGE OF THE PIECE OF LEGISLATION, BUT LIMITS FURTHER DEBATE TO 30 HOURS. CLOTURE IS TYPICALLY USED TO END A FILIBUSTER. A FAILED CLOTURE VOTE OFTEN PREVENTS THE LEGISLATION FROM EVER COMING TO A VOTE.
