       THE SENATE IMMIGRATION BILL PROVIDES COVER FOR TERRORISTS

  (Mr. SMITH of Texas asked and was given permission to address the 
House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. SMITH of Texas. Mr. Speaker, the Senate immigration bill provides 
cover for suspected terrorists and others who would do us harm. After 6 
months, it legalizes millions of people in the country illegally. They 
can then get work permits, Social Security cards, and driver's 
licenses. This gives them a legitimate cover to travel and plot 
attacks.
  And mass legalization will encourage others to enter the country 
illegally so they too can obtain cover documents.
  Any immigration bill should put the safety of Americans first. We 
should go slowly before giving amnesty to millions of illegal 
immigrants long before we have secure borders.
