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!

We would need only to secure our borders for terrorists. For illegals... all we need to do is cut off benefits.

Our country is in financial crisis, yet we give billions to Muslim nations, billions for welfare for Illegals, billions to run guns to drug cartels in Mexico, attack our countrymen through the IRS by abuse of power and assault on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, but can't secure the border. D.C. and the Gang of eight have funny priorities. If you haven't read it I would encourage you to read "1984" by George Orwell, The rise and fall of the roman empire (where the country falls because the Senators looking for more power pander to the rabble) and the rise and fall of Hitler. Hitler started out with people need to register their guns for safety - after that passed the people weren't safe enough so we need to collect the guns you will be safer - sure turned out well with millions gassed in the concentration camps. With the camps under FEMA that are circled in barbed wire and the millions of plastic three party coffins and the stockpile of ammo by DHS - the assault on conservatives by IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the total disregard for the law and now amnesty for illegals. Boy I really feel warm and fuzzy and trusting of my government - NOT!!!!! Secure the borders first and if that can't be accomplished stop the presses, we don't need amnesty. Political correctness is killing what use to be a great nation - we are getting closer still to a third world nation with this administration. After all the IRS thing is irrevelant, Benghazi is irrevelant,, fast and furious is irrevelant, solyndra is irrevelant - they happened a longtime ago, what difference does it make. It makes a difference when the administration makes their own laws and dismisses the ones they took an oath or preserve and protect. SECURE THE BORDERS - NO MAYBES, JUST DO IT AND PUT EVERYTHING ELSE ON HOLD.
