WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Tom Tancredo (CO-06) was shocked to learn of the White House's demand of House Republicans to exclude portions of the House Intelligence Bill which would prevent those who are in the United States illegally from obtaining drivers licenses, speed up the deportation process, and bar the use of the Matricula Consular card, which the FBI has already testified before Congress as being too susceptible to fraud for official use.
"This last minute switch by the White House now puts in jeopardy the most significant border security enhancements we've seen in years," said Tancredo, chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus.
