Sen. Specter is Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

My bill seeks to deal with a very serious public safety problem in the United States where illegal aliens who have been convicted of crimes of violence are permitted to walk free on the streets of America because their native country will not accept them for deportation.  The legislation would put pressure on countries to take back their citizens under circumstances where they now refuse to do so by conditioning visas and foreign aid upon the countries accepting back their native citizens.
