Concerned About Border Security?

>> Thursday, December 20, 2007

I don't normally pass stuff like this through the blog, but I want to share this.

Last year Congress passed The Secure Fence Act and completely funded it. So far nothing has been done, however, and late Monday evening HR2764 was passed (and just let me say that I love how they slam lots of stuff in one bill. Scam artists, the lot of them):

H.R. 2764, a bill that provides funding for several federal departments and
agencies, was brought to the House floor and passed late last evening by the
Democratic leadership. Not only does the bill contain provisions removing
all specific locations as outlined by the Secure Fence Act, it also removes
all requirements to construct any fencing or physical barriers along the
border. This action basically repeals the Secure Fence Act and undermines
past efforts to secure our nation's border.

H.R. 2764 has been referred to the Senate for consideration and then will be returning to the House with any changes in the form of a conference report. Congressman Hunter is working with his colleagues in both the House and Senate to ensure that these dangerous provisions do not remain in the final version of the
funding bill.

Basically HR 2764 reverses the Secure Fence Act and removes it's funding. If our nation's security is high on your list of concerns I urge you to contact your congress-person and senator( full list of contact info here )and let them know what you want done.

Remember- you hold the power. Your vote put them in office- it can also take them out. Be sure to remind them of that. And stand by it.



Here is my letter. Feel free to copy it and send it to your elected official if you don't want to write your own. Links to your representatives are just above.


I was disappointed to see the passage of HR 2764 through the House late Monday evening. The security of our country is of utmost importance to me and my family. Not only are our freedoms threatened by terrorists crossing (both) our borders but our economy is in jeopardy, as well. We cannot continue to support “undocumented workers” through our federal programs, hospital emergency rooms and educational programs and hope to care for our legal residents, as well. I won’t even begin to expand on all the un-taxed dollars that leave our country due to companies like Western Union.

I am counting on you, as my elected representative, to follow the will of your constituents in this matter and not a party line and leve the Secure Fence Act in tact and funded.

I heard about this on the American Right channel (XM radio) last night. Thanks for including the detailed information. I've sent my letters.

Jody, I was just watching CNN and they had a poll that showed 99% of Americans want a federal government that will secure our ports and enforce immigration law. And that was CNN for God's sake. What is going on with this congress?

Time to just clean house and get rid of these people that are more interested in lining their pockets than representing the people who elected them.
