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 all boarders now!!! We need shut it down now! Illegal immigrants should not be allowed to enter our country. And should be sent back if they do so. No flights should be allowed in from Africa! Screening will not work, cut it off at the source.

After borders secure, all illegal immigrants, including children must be sent back to their own countries along with parents and any other illegal relatives in USA. Stop All flights to and from Africa to protect our country from Ebola now.
