U.S. Border Security: What We Think

Dear Elected Officials:  We, The American People, present the following with the hope that you will take this matter seriously, as we very often feel we are left with no voice.  We are all Americans right now. We do not want to play party politics. We are done arguing along party lines. With that said, we will make this simple.  We agree with President Trump’s January 19, 2019 plan for southern border security and demand that Congress give him the requested resources. We demand that all party politics halt effective immediately, as they are holding our country hostage; Only making a situation, that has been brewing for over a decade, much worse.  We demand Pelosi and Schumer stop playing politics and playing games with the American People. They are acting without Good Faith for American People. We are appalled at Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and their supporters’ blatant attempts and on-going campaign to stop President Trump with anything he brings forth in his presidency.  He is the President. He deserves a working partnership between all three branches of government.  Using privilege and power to stop him from doing what WE elected him to do is acting without Good Faith. That is not how our government should work.  We demand Pelosi, Schumer, and their supporters stop using the media to lie to Americans, in effort to promote their own agenda.  We implore all Congressmen to vote for President Trump’s border security bill, because it’s the right thing to do. Full Stop.  Below outlines Chuck Schumer’s own plan for border security. How can he oppose President Trump so strongly, yet agree with him? Answer: Party Politics. It needs to stop.  “Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple” Chuck Schumer said during a 2009 speech. Schumer lists seven principles for immigration reform  - Illegal immigration is wrong, and future illegal immigration must be curtailed. *******-Control of borders is needed through increased infrastructure (fences, borders), and security personal at the border******* -We need an employment verification system to guarantee that all workers hired are in the country legally. This must be strictly enforced with penalties for those who don’t comply.-For those currently in the country illegally, he proposed requiring them to register with the government and submit to a rigorous process of becoming a legal citizen, or face deportation.-Reducing illegal immigration will make more room for legal family immigration.-We must encourage the world’s “best and brightest individuals to come to the United States and create the new technologies and businesses that will employ countless American workers. But we must discourage businesses from using our immigration laws as a means to obtain temporary and less expensive foreign labor to replace capable American workers.”In summary: “We must create a system that converts the current flow of primarily low skill illegal immigrants into the United States into a more manageable and controlled flow of legal immigrants who can be absorbed by our economy”   Please Congressmen of The United States: Stop playing games with The American People. You should be listening to US not to the the leaders of your parties, who care only about lobbyists and posturing. It is time that you decide why you are in office: for us, The American People, or to advance your own position and power.  It is clear that you all agree that border security is indeed needed. Come together and make it happen.  Stop holding us hostage in political power plays.  Vote President Trump’s border security plan through and start working together!  Thank you, The American People

Stop making corrupt Somali Politicians Rich

Did you know that the US government is planning to send a billion dollars to Somalia (a country in East Africa)? Why? According to a statement issued by the US Ambassador to Somalia, the money would be used for humanitarian assistance, expanding education and healthcare, building institutions, and creating jobs. Now this would be great if the Somali Government actually used the money for developing their country. According to Transparency International, Somalia is ranked the most corrupt nation in the world, tied with North Korea. And according to a UN report, 70% of foreign aid received is unaccounted for. In fact, the United States suspended food and fuel aid to this Somali Government in 2017 because they were unable to account for all the aid given. Now ask yourself this, if we can’t trust this Somali Government to distribute food to its own people, then why should we trust that they would use our hard-earned tax dollars to better their county? Not to mention this is the same government in Somalia that has rigged its nations election process and when their citizen questioned them the government had them arrested and even killed. When the UN questioned them, the government ousted the UN Ambassador from the country. If you don’t want your tax dollars used to support a nation who can’t even be trusted with food, then sign this petition and let our President, and Congress know that we don’t trust this Somali Government with our money.
