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!

If the government is too cowardly to stop this man made crisis then tell the American citizens what we need to do to restore self respect to our country. It is obvious that our president is hell bent on making us a third world country. That is his idea or equality for all.

Our military is required to swear to defend the nation against enemies, foreign and domestic. If children can cross our border and get into our county; what is stopping terrorist from following them into the country as well. SECURE THE BORDER NOW! No other nation would allow this to happen on their soil. Just look at Mexico who currently has a US Marine incarcerated for crossing their border. Action is way over due to combat this invasion of ILEAGLE border crosser.

A country without borders is not a country. You are diluting the meaning of citizenship and trampling our rights as citizens by leaving the border wide open.
