following my previous post on GOP's proposed laws against abortion
( http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-981103/gop-legislation-against-abortion#55647721 ),
this is a list of proposed legislation against immigration

H.R.81 - Resettlement Accountability National Security Prioritization Act of 2017
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/81
tl;dr once passed, refugee immigrants from (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, or Yemen) have 4 years to be admitted to US, after which no more such immigrants will be allowed. this means Trump administration will still allow immigrants on a case by case basis, but the next administration (possibly a Democrat) will have to block any such immigrants (unless they overturn the law thorugh another time-consuming procedure)?
tl;dr of the tl;dr: it's the bill blocking muslims immigrants
status: 1 out of 4, 2 cosponsors (seems like not even Republicans wants to back this, knowing the backlash it would cause) -so far unlikely to pass

H.R.82 - Criminal Alien Deportation Enforcement Act of 2017
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/82
tl;dr if countries like Mexico delay or refuse to take back their citizens who came to America illegally, they won't be getting financial assistance.
status: 1 out of 4, 27 cosponsors

H.R.391 - Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act of 2017
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/391
tl;dr supposedly makes it easier to deport immigrants who seeked asylum
status: 1 out of 4, 17 cosponsors

H.R.486 - Grant's Law
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/486
tl;dr makes it easier to detain immigrants who commited "serious crimes", including murder. the immigrant is detained, then released within 90 days.
more information as described in the media:
http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/immigration/2015/06/30/immigrant-detention-congress-bill-salmon/29530813/
status: 1 out of 4, 13 cosponsors

H.R.505 - Border Security Technology Accountability Act of 2017
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/505
tl;dr there's no tl;dr
status: 1 out of 4, 17 cosponsors

if i'm missing any other recent proposed legislation on immigration, please let me know. thanks.

Tim Kaine supported those measures one upon a time. In fact he's even more hardcore...

A) Kaine's opinion in 2005 doesn't factor into Trump's policies in 2016 unless you are suggesting Kaine is a Time Lord.
B) Pointing at someone else doesn't make Trump's policies any better nor does it negate criticism of Trump.
C) There is no way in fark that was "more hardcore" than what Trump is up too.

My error in the first reply, here's the actual operative text, not long at all:

"The bill transfers release authority from the Department of Justice to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS may release the alien to an appropriate authority for proceedings related to the arrest, but DHS must resume custody for any period that the alien is not in custody of the appropriate authority. If the alien is not convicted of crimes for which the alien was arrested, DHS must continue to detain the alien until removal proceedings are completed.

DHS must complete the removal proceedings within 90 days."
