The must-pass Continuing Resolution is a great opportunity to pass H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act. This legislation, if passed, would help to end the crisis at the U.S. / Mexico border. This legislation would:

  • plug the loopholes in our asylum system that are exploited by illegal economic migrants, restoring its integrity and protecting it for legitimate asylum seekers;
  • block the government from continuing its policies of catch-and-release, thus deterring future waves of illegal migrants;
  • put a stop to the surges of family units and unaccompanied alien children, protecting them from exploitation and victimization by the cartels and traffickers;
  • put teeth into efforts to deter visa overstays;
  • rein in the breathtaking and illegal abuse of parole; and
  • institute mandatory nationwide E-Verify, which would shut off the “jobs magnet” for illegal immigration while protecting jobs for American workers.

As you can see, H.R. 2 is an incredibly important piece of legislation that would help to end the crisis at the U.S. / Mexico border. Please get H.R. 2 passed by attaching it to the Continuing Resolution!

P.S. Secure our borders. Stop the influx of immigrants and refugees. Implement the Congressionally-mandated biometric entry/exit system. Evict those here illegally. End chain migration. End birthright citizenship. End the visa lottery. End amnesty. End asylum. End catch-and-release. Make E-Verify mandatory. And more! Illegal immigration is a weapon of mass destruction!
