Border Security

The issue of border security is one of the most important issues facing us today, with an estimated 20 MILLION illegal aliens already here and thousands more crossing our border every day, it is imperative that we do everything that we possibly can to halt this influx as soon as possible if we are to continue existing as a sovereign nation. With this in mind, the President proposed building a fence on our Southern border to try to help accomplish this goal, and after over two years of factional wrangling, the Congress finally provided enough funding to start building it.

Now a group of fourteen Democrats, pressured by some activist groups as the Sierra Club and the Defenders of Wildlife, that seem to be more concerned over displacing a few animals than in protecting our borders from potential terrorists and the unchecked flow of illegal immigrants; are using those concerns in order to continue their political fight against the President in stopping the fence.

That this fight is led by the CHAIRMAN of the Congressional Homeland Security Committee, Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), makes it all the more obvious that this is a partisan attack on the Administration, not just a new found streak of political environmentalist fervor.
Remember Mr. Thompson, you were elected to protect your human constituents from all enemies, foreign and domestic; not to ensure totally perfect habitat for some obscure flora and fauna. You should resign from your Chairmanship if you can not keep that as your primary mission goal.

The point at issue is whether or not environmental waivers issued by the DHS are constitutional or not. The DHS was granted the power to issue these waivers by Congress in order to expedite the construction of the fence.

As noted in a press conference made by DHS in announcing these waivers the DHS spokesman noted that:

A substantial portion of the project areas addressed by these waivers have already undergone environmental reviews. In those areas where environmental reviews have not yet occurred, the department will conduct a review before any major construction begins. The department remains deeply committed to environmental responsibility, and will continue to work closely with the Department of Interior and other federal and state resources management agencies to ensure impacts to the environment, wildlife, and cultural and historic artifacts are analyzed and minimized.

But that isn't good enough for the "perfect or nothing" environmentalists or their "put party before security" cronies in the Congress.

Here are the fourteen that put the fate of the Hog-snouted Mole and the Dengue Fever carrying Southern Desert Rat before YOUR security concerns:

Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Homeland Security Committee Chairman

John Conyers (D-MI), Judiciary Committee Chairman
John Dingell (D-MI), Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman
Bob Filner (D-CA), Veterans Affairs Chairman
George Miller (D-CA), Education and Labor Committee Chairman
James Oberstar (D-MN), Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Chairman
Silvestre Reyes (D-TX), Intelligence Committee Chairman
Louise Slaughter (D-NY), Rules Committee Chairwoman

Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY)
Susan Davis (D-CA)
Raul M. Grijalva (D-AZ)
Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX)
Zoe Lofgren (D-CA)
Solomon Ortiz (D-TX)

Remember these people in November, and let them know how you feel about their partisan maneuverings affecting our border security.

Here is our "security" as it is:


Here is our security as has been proposed:


YOU decide which is better at protecting you and your family, and act accordingly.
