Secure the borders first

Success - Article sent! close

As the immigration bill approaches a vote, consider that the Senate has rejected Sen. Chuck Grassley's amendment to secure the border before any amnesty can be considered and Sen. Barbara Boxer wants to hand out welfare and health care benefits to the illegals. Well, there was a time when America was a wealthier nation and could absorb poor people who sneaked across the border seeking a better life. President Ronald Reagan once did this, and today we are a debtor nation.

So granting illegals a path toward citizenship will only encourage 10 million more people to come here illegally. This is why securing the borders first is so important today.
