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 for at least two years, prior to any immigration reform. Protect our citizens before our lawbreakers

If you can't stand with the CITIZENS of this nation on this issue then you should resign your position now or wait for the CITIZENS to remove you through the ballot box.

First make sure no one else comes in. Monitor the thousands of money transfers to Mexico from Illegals. Let them pay SS now with grey money earned. Stop "Birther" policy.

This is shameful legislation brought to us again by some in the "ruling class" just like the "Bush, Kennedy, McCain Immigration Amnesty Bill" of 2007, which we the people defeated! An exception here is that they're also forcing the national I.D. card on you & I. It's not good that a conservative Sen. Rubio is compromising with a group made up mostly of leftists & moderates. NO BILL ON IMMIGRATION UNTIL AMERICA'S BORDER IS SECURED 1ST.

Border MUST BE COMPLETELY SECURED BY LAW and all LAWS already on books ENFORCED NOW before any immigration reform takes place. ILLEGALS should NOT be rewarded for coming here illegally!
