While President Bush has resurrected his guest-worker-illegal-alien-amnesty plan, Senators Tom Coburn (R.-Okla.), Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) and Ben Nelson (D.-Neb.) are proposing a non-amnesty Border Security and Interior Enforcement Improvement Act.

It would also increase the detention beds available to hold illegal aliens when they are caught and require the nations from which these illegal aliens come to expeditiously accept their return.
