       ``(i) In general.--Not later than 18 months after the date 
     of the enactment of the Border Security, Economic 
     Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, the Secretary 
     shall establish by regulation, as part of an optional

     and entities on a voluntary basis and that contains 
     additional mechanisms for authenticating an individual's 
     identity and using the authenticated identity information for 
     employment eligibility verification purposes.
       ``(ii) Design and operation of program.--The voluntary 
     program required by clause (i) shall be designed and operated 
     to include an identity verification platform that--

       ``(I) uses state-of-the-art multidimensional knowledge-
     based authentication technology to determine to a high degree 
     of accuracy whether an individual presenting biographic 
     information is the individual with that true identity;

     technology to implement the program, is operated pursuant to 
     a contract or other agreement with a nongovernmental entity

     authorizations will be determined for all individuals 
     identified as presenting their true identities through the

     individual presenting biographic information and to tailor 
     the identity determination in accordance with those 
     assessments;

     individuals subject to identity verification at the time 
     their identities are being verified in a manner that permits 
     rapid communication through Internet, mobile phone, and 
     landline telephone connections to facilitate identity-

     databases under the jurisdiction of the Commissioner of 
     Social Security, the Secretary of Homeland Security 
     (including the U.S.-VISIT data base), and the Secretary of 
     State (including passport and visa databases) to formulate

     tentative nonconfirmations of identity to correct errors in 
     records and achieve appropriate confirmations to the greatest 
     extent and as rapidly as possible;
       ``(XII) is subject to a review and appeals process by 
     administratively responsible personnel to correct errors in 
     the capabilities of the platform;

     permitting document and biometric inputs that can be offered 
     to individuals and entities using the System and may be used 
     at the option of employees to facilitate identity 
     verification (but which would not be required of either 
     employers or employees); and

     the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration 
     Modernization Act and ending on the date on which the 
     identity authentication program established under clause (i)

     verification system, service, or method in addition to those 
     provided for in this section to confirm the identity of an 
     individual without incurring liability under section 274B 
     if--

       (2) Extraordinary circumstance.--Restraints for an 
     extraordinary circumstance are only permitted if a medical 
     officer has directed the use of restraints for medical 
     reasons or if the facility administrator makes an

     companies cannot fill as many as 600,000 skilled positions, 
     even as unemployment numbers hover at historically high 
     levels.
       (2) The unfilled positions are mainly in the skilled 
     production category, and in occupations such as machinist, 
     operator, craft worker, distributor, or technician.
       (3) in less than 20 years, an overall loss of expertise and 
     management skill is expected to result from the gradual 
     departure from the workplace of 77,200,000 workers.
       (4) Postsecondary success and workforce readiness can be 
     achieved through attainment of a recognized postsecondary 
     credential.
       (5) According to the January 2011 Computing Technology 
     Industry Association report entitled ``Employer Perceptions 
     of Information Technology Training and Certification'', 64 
     percent of hiring information technology managers rate 
     information technology certifications as having extremely 
     high or high value in validating information technology 
     skills and expertise. The value of those certifications is 
     rated highest among senior information technology managers, 
     such as Chief Information Officers, and managers of medium-
     size firms.

  SA 1394. Mrs. FISCHER submitted an amendment intended to be proposed

reform and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; 
as follows:

       Strike section 2 and all that follows through the end of 
     title I inserting the following:

     SEC. 2. STATEMENT OF CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS.

       Congress makes the following findings:
       (1) Every sovereign nation has an unconditional right and 
     duty to secure its territory and people, which right depends 
     on control of its international borders. The sovereign people 
     and several states of the United States have delegated these 
     sovereign functions to the Federal Government (United States 
     Constitution, article I, section 8, clause 4). The liberty 
     and prosperity of the people depends on the execution of this 
     duty.
       (2) The passage of this Act recognizes that the Federal 
     Government must secure the sovereignty of the United States 
     of America and establish a coherent and just system for those 
     who seek to join American society to assimilate.
       (3) The United States has failed to control its borders. 
     The porousness of the Southern border has contributed to the 
     proliferation of the narcotics trade and its attendant 
     violent crime. The trafficking and smuggling of persons 
     across the border is an ongoing human rights scandal.
       (4) We have always welcomed immigrants to the United States 
     and will continue to do so, but in order to qualify for the 
     honor and privilege of eventual citizenship, our laws must be 
     followed. The world depends on America to be strong 
     economically, militarily, and ethically. The establishment of 
     a stable, just, and efficient immigration system only 
     supports those goals. As a Nation, we have the right and 
     responsibility to make our borders safe, to establish clear 
     and just rules for seeking citizenship, to control the flow 
     of legal immigration, and to eliminate illegal immigration, 
     which has become a threat to our national security.
       (5) Throughout our long history, many lawful immigrants 
     have assimilated into American society and contributed to our 
     strength and prosperity. Our immigration policy strives to 
     welcome those who share the values of the United States 
     Constitution and seek to contribute to our nation's 
     greatness. But no person has a right to enter the United 
     States unless by its express permission and in accordance 
     with the procedures established by law.
       (6) This Act is premised on the right and need of the 
     United States to achieve these goals, and to protect its 
     borders and maintain its sovereignty.

     SEC. 1118. HUMAN TRAFFICKING REPORTING.

       (a) Short Title.--This section may be cited as the ``Human 
     Trafficking Reporting Act of 2013''.
       (b) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery.
       (2) According to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 
     2000 ``severe forms of trafficking in persons'' means--
       (A) sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is 
     induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person 
     induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; 
     or
       (B) the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, 
     or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the 
     use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of 
     subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, 
     or slavery.
       (3) There is an acute need for better data collection of 
     incidents of human trafficking across the United States in 
     order to effectively combat severe forms of trafficking in 
     persons.
       (4) The State Department's 2012 Trafficking in Persons 
     report found that--
       (A) the United States is a ``source, transit and 
     destination country for men, women, and children, subjected 
     to forced labor, debt bondage, domestic servitude and sex 
     trafficking,''; and
       (B) the United States needs to ``improve data collection on 
     human trafficking cases at the Federal, state and local 
     levels''.
       (5) The International Organization for Migration has 
     reported that in order to effectively combat human 
     trafficking there must be reliable and standardized data, 
     however, the following barriers for data collection exist:
       (A) The illicit and underground nature of human 
     trafficking.
       (B) The reluctance of victims to share information with 
     authorities.
       (C) Insufficient human trafficking data collection and 
     research efforts by governments world wide.

[[Page S4704]]

       (6) A 2009 report to the Department of Health and Human 
     Services entitled Human Trafficking Into and Within the 
     United States: A Review of the Literature found that ``the 
     data and methodologies for estimating the prevalence of human 
     trafficking globally and nationally are not well developed, 
     and therefore estimates have varied widely and changed 
     significantly over time''.
       (7) The Federal Bureau of Investigation compiles national 
     crime statistics through the Uniform Crime Reporting Program.
       (8) Under current law, State and local governments 
     receiving Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance grants are 
     required to share data on part 1 violent crimes with the 
     Federal Bureau of Investigation for inclusion in the Uniform 
     Crime Reporting Program.
       (9) The addition of severe forms of trafficking in persons 
     to the definition of part 1 violent crimes will ensure that 
     statistics on this heinous crime will be compiled and 
     available through the Federal Bureau of Investigation's 
     Uniform Crime Report.
       (c) Human Trafficking To Be Included in Part 1 Violent 
     Crimes for Purposes of Byrne Grants.--Section 505 of the 
     Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 (42 U.S.C. 
     3755) is amended by adding at the end the following new 
     subsection:
       ``(i) Part 1 Violent Crimes To Include Human Trafficking.--
     For purposes of this section, the term `part 1 violent 
     crimes' shall include severe forms of trafficking in persons, 
     as defined in section 103 of the Trafficking Victims 
     Protection Act of 2000 (22 U.S.C. 7102).''.

     SEC. 1119. PROHIBITION ON LAND BORDER CROSSING FEES.

       The Secretary shall not establish, collect, or otherwise 
     impose a border crossing fee for pedestrians or passenger 
     vehicles at land ports of entry along the Southern border or 
     the Northern border, nor conduct any study relating to the 
     imposition of such a fee.

     SEC. 1120. DELEGATION.

     Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Health and Human 
     Services, the Secretary of State, or the Commissioner of 
     Social Security.

     SEC. 1121. SEVERABILITY.

       If any provision of this Act or any amendment made by this 
     Act, or any application of such provision or amendment to any 
     person or circumstance, is held to be unconstitutional, the 
     remainder of the provisions of this Act and the amendments
