     SEC. 2. STATEMENT OF CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Every sovereign nation has an unconditional right and 
     duty to secure its territory and people, which right depends 
     on control of its international borders. The sovereign people 
     and several states of the United States have delegated these 
     sovereign functions to the Federal Government (United States 
     Constitution, article I, section 8, clause 4). The liberty 
     and prosperity of the people depends on the execution of this 
     duty.
       (2) The passage of this Act recognizes that the Federal 
     Government must secure the sovereignty of the United States 
     of America and establish a coherent and just system for 
     integrating those who seek to join American society.
       (3) The United States has failed to control its Southern 
     border. The porousness of that border has contributed to the 
     proliferation of the narcotics trade and its attendant 
     violent crime. The trafficking and smuggling of persons 
     across the border is an ongoing human rights scandal.
       (4) We have always welcomed immigrants to the United States 
     and will continue to do so, but in order to qualify for the 
     honor and privilege of eventual citizenship, our laws must be 
     followed. The world depends on America to be strong 
     economically, militarily, and ethically. The establishment of 
     a stable, just, and efficient immigration system only 
     supports those goals. As a Nation, we have the right and 
     responsibility to make our borders safe, to establish clear 
     and just rules for seeking citizenship, to control the flow 
     of legal immigration, and to eliminate illegal immigration, 
     which in some cases has become a threat to our national 
     security.
       (5) Throughout our long history, many lawful immigrants 
     have assimilated into American society and contributed to our 
     strength and prosperity. Our immigration policy strives to 
     welcome those who share the values of the United States 
     Constitution and seek to contribute to our nation's 
     greatness. But no person has a right to enter the United 
     States unless by its express permission and in accordance 
     with the procedures established by law.
       (6) This Act is premised on the right and need of the 
     United States to achieve these goals, and to protect its 
     borders and maintain its sovereignty.

       (b) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery.
       (2) According to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 
     2000 ``severe forms of trafficking in persons'' means--
       (A) sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is 
     induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person 
     induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; 
     or
       (B) the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, 
     or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the 
     use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of 
     subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, 
     or slavery.
       (3) There is an acute need for better data collection of 
     incidents of human trafficking across the United States in 
     order to effectively combat severe forms of trafficking in 
     persons.
       (4) The State Department's 2012 Trafficking in Persons 
     report found that--
       (A) the United States is a ``source, transit and 
     destination country for men, women, and children, subjected 
     to forced labor, debt bondage, domestic servitude and sex 
     trafficking,''; and
       (B) the United States needs to ``improve data collection on 
     human trafficking cases at the Federal, state and local 
     levels''.
       (5) The International Organization for Migration has 
     reported that in order to effectively combat human 
     trafficking there must be reliable and standardized data, 
     however, the following barriers for data collection exist:
       (A) The illicit and underground nature of human 
     trafficking.
       (B) The reluctance of victims to share information with 
     authorities.
       (C) Insufficient human trafficking data collection and 
     research efforts by governments world wide.
       (6) A 2009 report to the Department of Health and Human 
     Services entitled Human Trafficking Into and Within the 
     United States: A Review of the Literature found that ``the 
     data and methodologies for estimating the prevalence of human 
     trafficking globally and nationally are not well developed, 
     and therefore estimates have varied widely and changed 
     significantly over time''.
       (7) The Federal Bureau of Investigation compiles national 
     crime statistics through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program.
       (8) Under current law, State and local governments 
     receiving Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance grants are 
     required to share data on part 1 violent crimes with the 
     Federal Bureau of Investigation for inclusion in the Uniform 
     Crime Reporting Program.
       (9) The addition of severe forms of trafficking in persons 
     to the definition of part 1 violent crimes will ensure that 
     statistics on this heinous crime will be compiled and 
     available through the Federal Bureau of Investigation's 
     Uniform Crime Report.
       (c) Human Trafficking To Be Included in Part 1 Violent 
     Crimes for Purposes of Byrne Grants.--Section 505 of the 
     Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 (42 U.S.C. 
     3755) is amended by adding at the end the following new 
     subsection:
       ``(i) Part 1 Violent Crimes To Include Human Trafficking.--
     For purposes of this section, the term `part 1 violent 
     crimes' shall include severe forms of trafficking in persons, 
     as defined in section 103 of the Trafficking Victims 
     Protection Act of 2000 (22 U.S.C. 7102).''.

     during the taxable year, or
       ``(ii) a specified expatriate,

     the amount by which his gains, derived from sources within

     during such year of capital assets exceed his losses, 
     allocable to sources within the United States, from the sale 
     or exchange at any time during such year of capital assets. 
     For purposes of this paragraph, gains and losses shall be 
     taken into account only if, and to the extent that, they

     loss on the sale or exchange of any asset which is held by a 
     specified expatriate and which was subject to section 877A,

     date which is 10 years prior to the date of the enactment of

     satisfaction of the Secretary that the loss of such 
     individual's United States citizenship did not result in a 
     substantial reduction in taxes.''.

     U.S.C. 212(a)(10)(E)) is amended to read as follows:

     taxation.--
       ``(i) In general.--Any alien who is determined by the 
     Secretary of the Treasury to be a specified expatriate is 
     inadmissible.
       ``(ii) Specified expatriate.--In this subparagraph, the 
     term `specified expatriate' has the meaning given that term 
     in section 871(a)(2)(C) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

     specified expatriate (as defined in section 871(a)(2)(C) of 
     the Internal Revenue Code of 1986) may be granted a waiver of 
     inadmissibility under the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 
     U.S.C. 1101 et seq.) if such individual satisfies 
     requirements relating to such individual's tax status, such 
     as a tax or penalty equal to the loss in tax revenue to the
