Tell Congress: Secure the Borders First!

Lawmakers must offer workable step-by-step immigration reforms that secure the borders first and are compatible with the Constitution.

The bi-partisan "Gang of Eight" has made it their task to overhaul our current immigration system. Over a course of months and after a myriad of closed-door meetings, the Gang recently unveiled their plan: an unworkable 844 page volume that few Senators are likely to actually read (much less understand).

With immigration as much a mess as it is, and as complicated as it is, lawmakers must offer remedies wisely and slowly – not through a one-size-fits all “comprehensive” plan.  We don’t need an “Obamacare” of immigration. We need many single-issue bills, and we need months to debate them in broad daylight.  

Not only that, we need to identify and work on real priorities. Before discussing any type of “pathway to citizenship” or amnesty program – which the Heritage Foundation claims would cost $6.3 trillion – lawmakers must deal with the root of our immigration problem, first and foremost: insecure, unmanaged borders. 

True immigration reform means securing the borders first!

Border security, however, must be compatible with the Constitution and should not violate the People’s freedom of travel. Further, border security measures must not include provisions to mandate any type of National ID card, which would subject Americans to greater government surveillance.

Take Action! Sign the petition and message your lawmakers telling them that Immigration Reform starts with Secure Borders! Lawmakers must offer workable step-by-step immigration reforms that secure the borders first and are compatible with the Constitution!

Our tax money will go to feed, house, and medical treatment for those who do not enter our country legally. Please, let's take care of our own Vet's before we take care of those who come across our boarders illegally. We need to secure our borders!

My grandparents came here legally and through proper channels to tap into the American Dream. If they want that Dream, tell them to do the same. Secure our borders.

With out the border secured what good does it do to spend money? As for the illegal immigrants they are not refugees, they are illegal immigrants entering the country illegally. Don't matter if they are a child or an adult send them back. Why are we busing them all over the US when it would be cheaper to put them on a jet and send them home. Does not make since.

Securing our borders is the first step toward fixing the broken immigration system. I also feel it is my right as a LEGAL, TAX PAYING, VOTER to expect the protection of secure borders. Do it now!

law Obama using states only unaccompanied children are to be processed, not children with adult, they are to be deported immediately. Why is he sending them all over our country when they are not supposed to be processed. Also fingerprint all of them on entry. They will then be documented as illegal aliens!!

We need to stop going into debt helping countries that couldn't care less about us and use the money to protect our borders! If 60,000 children can get in so easily, don't you think terrorists could too? We are too vulnerable right now and probably the laughing stock of the rest of the world! No wonder others don't take us seriously! This need to be fixed now..its just going to get worse!
