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!

Secure the borders. There is no reason to be in such a rush to grant amnesty to 11-33 million and put the United States in more debt and deprieve the citizens actually looking for a job in having the first opportunity to get one. These are law breakers, not these poor undocumented that have to stay in the shadow. How are you in the shadows when you are actively telling the government just what the hell they should provide for lawbreakers. With all the scandals, that should result in impeachment - dereliction of duty, treason with the lies and coverups, the IRS targeting Veterans, Tea Party members, anyone who teaches the Constitution and Bill of Rights, Christians (this administration goes out of its way to protect Muslim Terrorist) the foundation of our country - but it was just a lack of "CUSTOMER SERVICE" and "I don't remember" To bad the populace has been so dumbed down - if you forget as much as these directors have, they should be in an dementia ward. I hope you will uphold you sworn duty to the Constitution and protect our land, wish I could say that I think you will. Will remember when and if there is another election. No amnesty. Secure borders first.

We don't need amnisty, they broke the law . If you quit giving stuff and free money and services they will leave. I am a tax payer and I see my money wasted on illigal aliens who come here to use our services and to get money for their kids . I'm tired of America supporting Mexico and China. This has to stop. I don't feel like I'm in America , it feels like we have been attacked from both boarders. If you make it hard they will leave if you give away our country they will take .wake up we can afford to support Mexico ,China and others .

I am sick of my tax money going to illigal aliens. They come here to use our system ,free money, free health ,free school . If you stop giving them stuff they will leave. Thought if one comes to a country without legal status why would you have rights to twll how to run out government. I can't even get health insurance. I'm sick of the American government allowing this invasion to happen. We need to save America , otherwise we will become Mexico and China.

STOP putting illegals BEFORE Americans! What makes you think illegals who have broken our laws, kill Americans and bloodsuck our welfare deserve anything? If you cannot adhere to our laws, then RESIGN so we can elect ethical, honest people who will obey our laws and Constitution.
