Petition to Secure Our Borders First

To:
The Honorable John Boehner, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives
All members of U.S. House of Representatives Republican Conference

Secure Our Borders First!

Thank you for your commitment to addressing the issue of illegal immigration and border security through regular order. The conservative grassroots are outraged that the U.S. Senate has rushed through the pork-laden Rubio-Obama illegal immigration amnesty bill -- S. 744, the so-called “Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act”. 

S. 744 was written behind closed doors with special interests; in the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Gang of 8 and Democrats blocked all substantive amendments because of a previously cooked deal; and on the Senate floor, the Democratic majority blocked any attempts to fix the bill. The outcry of the conservative grassroots against the bureaucracy-inflating Senate bill was drowned with millions of dollars in false advertising funded by dirty money pulled from the deep pockets of pro-open border billionaires seeking cheap labor. 

The Senate bill’s hollow, impossible-to-implement Hoeven-Corker amendment does not secure our border. It simply expands the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's already intrusive powers, with no real checks and balances or oversight. If anything, S. 744 will only create more red tape and choke any chance at real border security. Under the bill, illegal aliens will still be granted amnesty before the border is secured.

Our country’s existing border security laws aren’t being enforced as it is; Congress must focus our efforts there first. We stand up in support of securing the border before any "legalization" measures for illegal immigrants, provisional or permanent, are even considered.

We the undersigned demand that American border security and enforcement measures be fully, concretely enforced NOW, and that our country's sovereignty be protected NOW. 

Secure America’s border first, before granting any level of "legalization" to illegal immigrants. It’s the right thing to do.
