     referred to a committee; and
       (B) with respect to a joint resolution of the House 
     receiving the resolution--

     except that
       (ii) the vote on final passage shall be on the joint 
     resolution of the other House.
       (6) Rules of house of representatives and senate.--This 
     subsection is enacted by Congress--
       (A) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate 
     and House of Representatives, respectively, and as such--

       (e) Conforming Amendment.--Section 102(b)(1) of the Illegal 
     Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 
     (8 U.S.C. 1103 note) is amended by striking subparagraph (D).

     SEC. 1__8. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT EXIT TRACKING FOR ALL UNITED 
                   STATES VISITORS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Consistent with the Illegal Immigration Reform and 
     Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, the United States will 
     continue its progress toward full biometric entry-exit 
     capture capability at land, air, and sea points of entry.
       (2) No capability exists to fully track whether non-United 
     States persons in the United States on a temporary basis have 
     exited the country consistent with the terms of their visa, 
     whether by land, sea, or air.
       (3) No program exists along the Southwest border to track 
     land exits from the United States into Mexico.
       (4) Without the ability to capture the full cycle of an 
     alien's trip into and out of the United States, it is 
     possible for persons to remain in the United States 
     unlawfully for years without detection by U.S. Immigration 
     and Customs Enforcement.
       (5) Because there is no exit tracking capability, there is 
     insufficient data for an official assessment of the number of 
     persons who have overstayed a visa and that remain in the 
     United States. Studies have estimated that as many as 40 
     percent of all persons in the United States without lawful 
     immigration status entered the country legally and did not 
     return to their country of origin or follow the terms of 
     their entry.
       (6) Despite a legal mandate to track alien exits, more than 
     a decade without any significant capability to do so has--
       (A) degraded the Federal Government's ability to enforce 
     immigration laws;
       (B) placed a greater strain on law enforcement resources; 
     and
       (C) undermined the legal immigration process in the United 
     States.
       (b) Requirement for Outbound Travel Document Capture at 
     Land Points of Entry.--
       (1) Outbound travel document capture at foot crossings.--
       (A) In general.--Not later than 1 year after the date of 
     the enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall establish a 
     mandatory exit data system for all outbound lanes at each 
     land point of entry along the Southern border that is only 
     accessible to individuals on foot or by nonmotorized means.
       (B) Data collection requirements.--The system established 
     under subparagraph (A) shall require the collection of data 
     from machine-readable visas, passports, and other travel and 
     entry documents for all categories of aliens who are exiting 
     the United States through an outbound lane described in 
     subparagraph (A).
       (2) Outbound travel document capture at all other land 
     points of entry.--
       (A) In general.--Not later than 2 years after the date of 
     the enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall establish a 
     mandatory exit data system at all outbound lanes not subject 
     to paragraph (1) at each land point of entry along the 
     Southern border.
       (B) Data collection requirements.--The system established 
     under subparagraph (A) shall require the collection of data 
     from machine-readable visas, passports, and other travel and 
     entry documents for all categories of aliens who are exiting 
     the United States through an outbound lane described in 
     subparagraph (A).
       (3) Information required for collection.--While collecting 
     information under paragraphs (1) and (2), the Secretary shall 
     collect identity-theft resistant departure information from 
     the machine-readable visas, passports, and other travel and 
     entry documents.
       (4) Recording of exits and correlation to entry data.--The 
     Secretary shall integrate the records collected under 
     paragraphs (1) and (2) into the interoperable data system 
     established under section 3303(b) and any other database 
     necessary to correlate an alien's entry and exit data.
       (5) Processing of records.--Before the departure of 
     outbound aliens at each point of entry, the Secretary shall 
     provide for cross-reference capability between databases 
     designated by the Secretary under paragraph (4) to determine 
     and record whether an outbound alien has been in the United 
     States without lawful immigration status.
       (6) Records inclusion requirements.--The Secretary shall 
     maintain readily accessible entry-exit data records for 
     immigration and other law enforcement and improve immigration 
     control and enforcement by including information necessary to 
     determine whether an outbound alien without lawful presence 
     in the United States entered the country through--
       (A) unauthorized entry between points of entry;
       (B) visa or other temporary authorized status;
       (C) fraudulent travel documents;
       (D) misrepresentation of identity; or
       (E) any other method of entry.
       (7) Prohibition on collecting exit records for united 
     states citizens.--
       (A) Prohibition.--While documenting the departure of 
     outbound individuals at each point of entry along the 
     Southern border, the Secretary may not--
       (i) process travel documents of United States citizens;
       (ii) log, store, or transfer exit data for United States 
     citizens;
       (iii) create, maintain, operate, access, or support any 
     database containing information collected through outbound 
     processing at a point of entry under paragraph (1) or (2) 
     that contains records identifiable to an individual United 
     States citizen.
       (B) Exception.--The prohibition set forth in subparagraph 
     (A) does not apply to the records of an individual if an 
     officer processing travel documentation in the outbound lanes 
     at a point of entry along the Southern border--
       (i) has a strong suspicion that the individual has engaged 
     in criminal or other prohibited activities; or
       (ii) needs to verify an individual's identity because the 
     individual is attempting to exit the United States without 
     travel documentation.
       (C) Verification of travel documents.--Subject to the 
     prohibition set forth in subparagraph (A), the Secretary may 
     provide for the confirmation of a United States citizen's 
     travel documentation validity in the outbound lanes at a 
     point of entry along the Southern border.
       (c) Infrastructure Improvements at Land Points of Entry.--
       (1) Facilitation of land exit tracking.--The Secretary may 
     improve the infrastructure at, or adjacent to, land points of 
     entry, as necessary, to implement the requirements under 
     paragraphs (1) and (2) of subsection (b), by--
       (A) expanding or reconfiguring outbound road or bridge 
     lanes within a point of entry;
       (B) improving or reconfiguring public roads or other 
     transportation infrastructure leading into, or adjacent to, 
     the outbound lanes at a point of entry if--
       (i) there has been a demonstrated negative impact on 
     transportation in the area adjacent to a point of entry as a 
     result of projects carried out under this section; or

[[Page S4223]]

       (ii) the Secretary, in consultation with State, local, or 
     tribal officials responsible for transportation adjacent to a 
     point of entry, has submitted a report to the Committee on 
     Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate and 
     the Committee on Homeland Security of the House of 
     Representatives that projects proposed under this section 
     will have a significant negative impact on transportation 
     adjacent to a point of entry without such transportation 
     infrastructure improvements; and
       (iii) the total of funds obligated in any year to improve 
     infrastructure outside a point of entry under subsection 
     (c)(1) shall not exceed 25 percent of the total funds 
     obligated to meet the requirements under paragraphs (1) and 
     (2) of subsection (b) in the same year;
       (C) constructing, expanding, or improving access to 
     secondary inspection areas, where feasible;
       (D) physical structures to accommodate inspections and 
     processing travel documents described in subsection (b)(3) 
     for outbound aliens, including booths or kiosks at exit 
     lanes;
       (E) transfer, installation, use, and maintenance of 
     computers, software or other network infrastructure to 
     facilitate capture and processing of travel documents 
     described in subsection (b)(3) for all outbound aliens; and
       (F) performance of outbound inspections outside of 
     secondary inspection areas at a point of entry to detect 
     suspicious activity or contraband.
       (2) Report on infrastructure requirements to carry out 100 
     percent land exit tracking.--Not later than 45 days after the 
     date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary shall 
     submit, to the Committee on Homeland Security and 
     Governmental Affairs of the Senate and the Committee on 
     Homeland Security of the House of Representatives, a report 
     that assesses the infrastructure needs for each point of 
     entry along the Southern border to fulfill the requirements 
     under subsection (b), including--
       (A) a description of anticipated infrastructure needs 
     within each point of entry;
       (B) a description of anticipated infrastructure needs 
     adjacent to each point of entry;
       (C) an assessment of the availability of secondary 
     inspection areas at each point of entry;
       (D) an assessment of space available at or adjacent to a 
     point of entry to perform processing of outbound aliens;
       (E) an assessment of the infrastructure demands relative to 
     the volume of outbound crossings for each point of entry; and
       (F) anticipated wait times for outbound individuals during 
     processing of travel documents at each point of entry, 
     relative to possible improvements at the point of entry.
       (d) Procedures for Exit Processing and Inspection.--
       (1) Individuals subject to outbound secondary inspection.--
     Officers performing outbound inspection or processing travel 
     documents may send an outbound individual to a secondary 
     inspection area for further inspection and processing if the 
     individual is--
       (A) determined or suspected to have been in the United 
     States without lawful status during processing under 
     subsection (b) or at another point during the exit process;
       (B) found to be subject to an outstanding arrest warrant;
       (C) suspected of engaging in prohibited activities at the 
     point of entry;
       (D) traveling without travel documentation; or
       (E) subject to any random outbound inspection procedures, 
     as determined by the Secretary.
       (2) Limitations on outbound secondary inspections.--The 
     Secretary may not designate an outbound United States citizen 
     for secondary inspection or collect biometric information 
     from a United States citizen under outbound inspection 
     procedures unless criminal or other prohibited activity has 
     been detected or is strongly suspected.
       (3) Outbound processing of persons in the united states 
     without lawful presence.--
       (A) Process for recording unlawful presence.--If the

     understand English;
       (3) there is vast support among the American people to 
     allow a company the freedom to implement English in the 
     workplace policies; and
       (4) when a group of employees speaks a language other than 
     English in the workplace, it may cause misunderstandings, 
     create dangerous circumstances, and undermine morale.
       (b) Requirement of English Language Permissible.--Section
