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!

I am ASTOUNDED that we still do not have a hold on our borders, especially with ebola and ISIS romping around!

We need to close our borders. It is unfair for Americans to suffer when we a. know the virus is fatal b. can close borders and prevent incidents.

Please secure the borders. This is unsustainable. It is also hard enough for citizens of this country to survive.

Shut down ALL non essential flights in and out of Africa. Any person who does come here, via plane or ship, from this region and surrounding regions, need automatic isolation for 21 days. Do not over tax our system just to try and justify one world goverment or health system. We the people need to STAND UP and get mad enough to tell the truth of what is happening. Tell all those those in power, that this is our country. If they really wanted to protect us they would stop the flights in and out. It is common sense. Europe should do same thing. Then maybe the WHO could get a handle on this outbreak. Which IS their job to organize.
