With the border security crisis in the news, President Obama has finally been forced to act. He has spent years ignoring the demands of Congress, Governors and the American people to secure our southern border. Now, in crisis mode, he responds by asking Congress for nearly $4 billion in additional funding to help stabilize the situation.
Let me be clear, this crisis is a tragedy that lies squarely with the President. Congress will not give him a blank check to fix it. We must stop throwing money at the border without actually taking steps to secure it. We must enforce the laws that are already on the books and there can be no amnesty.
Help me send a message to President Obama: Listen to Congress. Listen to our border state Governors. Listen to the American people and take action now to secure our borders!
The children caught in this tragedy want a better life and are not to blame. The men and women patrolling our borders have been shouting from the rooftops for more help, more resources, and more personnel, they are not to blame. President Obama is to blame and he needs to listen!
I hope to hear from you.
