Why the Wall Must Be Funded Now

Allen Roth | President of Secure America Now

Without borders, we don’t have a country. Our borders are porous and being overrun by illegal aliens. We must secure our borders.

 

 

This is not a fringe or radical argument to make - in fact it is pretty mainstream with the people of the United States of America. Politicians on the left and right have talked about the need to secure our borders for decades on end. Just take a look at some of these quotes. Considering today’s political climate, these may shock you.

 

“All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country.”

-Bill Clinton, State of the Union, 1995

 

“We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.”

-Bill Clinton, State of the Union, 1995

 

“The American people are fundamentally pro-legal immigration and anti-illegal immigration.”

-Chuck Schumer, Speech at Georgetown Law, 2009

 

“‘I voted numerous times when I was a senator to spend money to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in, and I do think that you have to control your borders.”

-Hillary Clinton, 2015

 

So why is it that after decades of rhetoric and big talk from our politicians, we still cannot control our borders?

 

The good news is that President Trump is taking action. He has already began construction on the border wall on our southern border.

 

Since President Trump has taken office:

 

  • In 2017, there was an 83% increase in ICE arrests of MS-13 gang members
  • Department of Justice worked with Central American allies to get criminal charges against 4,000 MS-13 gang members
  • In 2017, ICE removed 226,000 illegal aliens from the country, including thousands with criminal offenses related to drugs, violent crime, even homicide.
  • We have deployed our military to the border to stop the violent migrant caravan from entering the country.

 

Now President Trump is demanding more funding for the wall from Congress before they leave in December.

 

There is no chance we will be able to get funding for the wall once Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker in January! Now is the time for Congress to act in the security interests of the American people.

 

Tell Congress to keep their word and fully fund President Trump’s border wall before they go home in December.
