    The United States does not have the authority to do what that quoted language suggests. I don't think that has any chance of going anywhere, and is being done purely for political purposes. I think that some of this crap is generated using the language it does precisely because the author / sponsor knows it doesn't have a snowball's chance in the Mojave of passing, but he can say to the people who put up the money to get him elected that he tried to do what they wanted.
    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.
