Frustrated with the non-stop surge of illegal immigrants pouring over the U.S.-Mexico border, a new and bipartisan solution has emerged to give migrant families 15 days to prove they deserve asylum or be sent home.
Called “Operation Safe Return” and proposed by the influential Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, it would provide migrants with legal and medical attention, translators and multiple hearings with officials to prove they had “credible fear” of returning home, the key to winning asylum.
But if they are denied by a judge — and 80%-90% typically are — the migrants would be sent home.
The article goes on to state the following:
The program, which immigrants would enroll in, would not require any new laws or rules and would allow for a shift of funds to impacted areas on the border. Those with convictions or other legal troubles would not be eligible for Operation Safe Return.
“Aren’t you sick of this,” said the author of the plan, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate panel, at a Wednesday immigration roundtable. “Let’s start to do something.”

SCROLL DOWN to read the full proposal which Johnson sent to the White House, Justice Department and Homeland Security Thursday morning. The proposal is signed by a group of both Republican and Democrat senators.
The problem is growing. It’s out of control. It’s overwhelming. We need to change our #immigration laws to reduce the incentives for human traffickers to exploit the system and migrants to make a very perilous journey. #BorderCrisis pic.twitter.com/KuP7tlXiMz
