White House predicts 127,000 new unaccompanied alien minors will cross the border this year
We know how to fight this, but we need your help now!
Better get ready, because another massive surge of so-called "unaccompanied alien children" (UACs) is moving across our southern border right now.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has just unearthed an incriminating year-old PowerPoint presentation to Congress prepared by the White House and four Cabinet departments. The presentation predicted that 60,000 illegal alien minors would cross in 2014, and that twice as many would cross this year, in 2015.
You'll recall that Obama and other officials claimed that they were taken by surprise at the border surge last year, but this slideshow reveals the truth and proves that the White House knew what was coming all along.
Do you remember watching TV news day after day after day, showing the minors crossing the border and then turning themselves in to the first Border Patrol agent they could find?
You remember that because these UACs were from Central America and they were operating under a loophole in the law that allowed them to disappear into the U.S. population in the custody of family members or friends already in this country. Court hearings were set for the minors, and guess what -- hardly any showed up for the hearings, and virtually none have been deported.
America was scammed last year, and according to the White House, the scam isn't over! We're going to be slammed twice as hard this year.
How much will this disaster cost the American people? The slideshow said the surge would cost taxpayers more than $2 Billion.
So, what can we do about it? Better said, what can NumbersUSA and our millions of citizen activists do together to end illegal immigration once and for all? LOTS OF THINGS!
The House Judiciary Committee has approved 4 terrific bills that, if signed into law, would help end the problem of illegal immigration. These bills would strengthen interior enforcement and close loopholes at the border:
1. Rep. Lamar Smith's (R-Texas) mandatory E-Verify bill, the Legal Workforce Act (H.R.1147) would require all businesses to check new hires through this web-based system within three years.
2. Rep. John Carter's (R-Texas) Protection of Children Act (H.R.1149) would prevent unaccompanied alien children (UACs) without a legitimate humanitarian claim from using loopholes and inconsistencies in immigration law to remain in the U.S. and instead be returned home.
3. Rep. Jason Chaffetz' Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act of 2015 (H.R.1153) would make critical improvements to an asylum system that is overwhelmed with fraud and abuse.
4. Rep. Trey Gowdy's bill, the Michael Davis, Jr. in Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act (H.R.1148), would bolster the interior immigration enforcement system dismantled by the Obama Administration and defund President Obama's unconstitutional executive actions on immigration.
Wouldn't you like to live in an America with these laws in place? It can happen! As I said, these bills have already passed in committee. They need a VOTE on the House floor to advance to the Senate. So, again, it depends on House Speaker John Boehner to allow these desperately needed bills a fair vote.
The question is: Will Boehner do it? It probably depends on outside pressure from NumbersUSA and other citizens.
We will need to send hundreds of thousands of free faxes and have our members make many thousands of toll-free phone calls to get this matter enough noise to force the Speaker to act. We've done it before, and we will do it again.
Well, I said "free", but obviously our faxing system and our toll-free lines are anything BUT free! It costs us a fortune to support this enormous volume of citizen activism.
We all want to stop the surge at the border. We all want to end illegal immigration. But letting up is not an option!
NumbersUSA cannot do this alone. We need you and the rest of our members to help fund this effort, and course, send the faxes and make the phone calls.
Will you help? We need you to donate today.
