Dear Member of Congress,
As a free nation, America has a duty and responsibility to enforce existing immigration laws and protect its people. Keeping citizens safe from harm is the first obligation of government; opening our borders wide for any and all people who arrive at our "front steps" is not! If illegal immigration in the U.S. stays on its current path, our economy will soon be overwhelmed by the huge number of "aliens" who would require government assistance to survive. The cost to American taxpayers for food stamps, health care, equipping our public schools and many other services would be astronomical and unsustainable. Continued illegal immigration will fundamentally transform the American way of life.
I'm faxing today to ask you, a duly elected defender of the U.S. Constitution and advocate for the American people, to support our Commander-in-Chief's promise to protect our nation and its people from the current invasion of illegal aliens. In March, more than 100,000 illegal aliens were apprehended crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. That's the highest number in more than a decade, and it doesn't include those who were NOT caught entering our nation illegally. Those numbers don't reflect a sensible immigration policy; they show -- plain and simple -- that our southern border is being INVADED by citizens of other nations! The security and humanitarian crisis along America's border with Mexico is getting worse, yet a majority in Congress just don't seem to care.
While many illegal aliens say they're seeking asylum from violence, oppression and poverty, there's evidence that others are being "coached" about what to tell the U.S. Border Patrol in order to "get papers" and stay in the U.S. Also, no one really knows how many MS-13 gang members, terrorists, career criminals and other threats to our safety and sovereignty are among them.
Please note, I am closely monitoring your response to my call to action. Thank you for your time and attention to this important matter.
A Concerned U.S. Citizen
