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!

The Government can't keep track of those who overstay their visa, so how will they keep track of the illegals? They won't and taxpayers will be the ones to feel the pain. Close the borders and follow US Federal law of LEGAL immigration. This amnesty ploy didn't work before so why does the gang of eight think it will work now. I think we all know why they are trying to push it through, just as they did the flawed Obama care bill. Could it be for the Votes? That is the general consensus and it is reprehensible for our so called leaders to try to paint a pretty picture, by allowing illegal lawbreakers to receive special privileges that are unavailable to US citizens, and also to those who follow the rule of law to come to the USA.. It's wrong and the gang all knows it but they do not care about the burden being placed on the future of America.
