|U.S. border's must be secure before reform can happen|
There is a one thousand page immigration bill working its way through the U.S. Senate. Buried in those many pages is vague wording that “some day” our borders will be secure….We promise.
We have already seen how this current administration respects our immigration laws, by issuing executive & stand down orders to bypass current law that it doesn’t agree with.
So what will be any different if after amnesty is granted to 11 million illegals, that this administration or the next one will decide to leave the borders alone and unsecured?
We have billions of dollars in illegal drugs being shipped in through our southern border AND it can be crossed at will by anyone that wants to pay a “coyote” to guide them in, or in many places, just walk in.
Of course our borders are pierced illegally in other ways as well, like over staying visas, coming in through the northern border and by ship along our coasts.
But the visible symbol of being serious about illegal immigration is the securing of our porous southern border. Until that border is secure, it is a slap in the face to all American citizens that an immigration bill is even being considered.
The politicians can promise all they want, but we’ve been down this road before.
When it comes to immigration reform, Americans want their borders secured first before anything else on immigration is deployed.
Just like President Reagan said: Trust….But verify
