The Nation

July 18, 1986

A bill aimed at stopping aliens from entering the country through fraudulent marriages to U.S. citizens was approved unanimously by the Senate immigration subcommittee and sent to the parent Judiciary Committee. Sen. Paul Simon (D-Ill.), the bill's sponsor, cited estimates indicating that 50,000 aliens gain entry each year through fake marriages. His bill calls for deportation of aliens involved in such marriages and provides penalties of five years in prison and fines of $250,000.
