AMAC Supports H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act


This legislation has two fundamental goals it aims to achieve, secure the US border, and combat illegal immigration. It would require finishing the border wall, better resources for border patrol, more transparency on illegal crossings, and strengthening current laws to protect children.

Dear Congressman Diaz-Balart and Congressman McClintock,

On behalf of the over 2 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), I am
writing in support of H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act of 2023. The US immigration system is deeply
flawed and cannot be left unaddressed by Congress much longer. America is experiencing the worst
immigration crisis of its time, leaving the border overwhelmed and our state apparatus vulnerable to
high-risk security threats. AMAC fully supports the passage of this legislation for its necessary and
comprehensive response to the national security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

Under the current administration, there have been over 5 million illegal entries along the southern
border, a record amount of narcotics entering the US such as fentanyl poisoning, and five out of nine
border sectors are unsecured and under considerable strain, according to the Chief of the U.S. Border
Patrol, Raul Ortiz. Even more concerning is the reckless neglect of unaccompanied children crossing the
border that our country is legally responsible for protecting and caring for but has failed to the highest
extent. Investigative reports regarding migrant child labor recently found that the Biden administration
has misplaced 85,000 children. This is a humanitarian crisis that we cannot afford to ignore and must
come together as a nation to resolve.

The Secure the Border Act of 2023 has two fundamental goals it aims to achieve, secure the US border,
and combat illegal immigration. It would require finishing the border wall, better resources for border
patrol such as higher pay and technological advancements, more transparency on illegal crossings, and
strengthening current laws to protect children.

Thank you, Representative Diaz-Balart and Representative McClintock, for your diligence and hard work
in crafting this solution to protect the nation’s border and the lives of innocent children.

In 2017 and 2018, we had a Republican President-best in over 150 years, in my opinion-and both houses of Congress. (A Democrap administration, with a brain-dead puppet at the top showed what could be done in two years, under the same scenario, and our country may never recover.) President Trump got his tax reduction and that was all. House Speaker (R) Paul Ryan never let the border wall come up for a vote, we might as well have had Pelosi as speaker. Later, when dumping Nobana Care came before the Senate, RINO McCain cast the deciding vote to keep it and saddled the people of our Country with that piece of crap forever, because he hated one person, Mr. Trump.

It’s easy now to pass terrifically popular bills, with very nice titles, by the Republican House because they know they will die in the Democrap Senate, or be vetoed by the Democrap Puppet. They can go home and say “we tried” and probably get re-elected to play the game again. Three times in my life the Republicans have held the Executive and Legislative branches of Government. I wasn’t old enough to know what President Eisenhower did with his two years of one party control, but “W” didn’t do anything conservative with his four years with a Republican legislature. Republicans have a way of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. There is just not enough testosterone on the right side of the aisle.

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness!!!

Each border state can build their own wall paid for by state funds and private collections. Crazy?? Yes!! Necessary??? You know the answer. We are being invaded by a foreign govt which on command will destroy our electrical grid,water supply,food sources and transportation.All with out a shot.They realize what they are up against and who if anyone will fight back.. Can you identify our enemy here in America??? We don’t like what is happening but don’t know how,who or what to fight until it’s to late. Time for marshal law and military courts which are temporary assets at our disposal.MAGA!!!!!

The bottom line is Joe Biden and his administration sold out this country and I thought Jimmy Carter was a bad president no comparison, Joe Biden will go down as the most infamous president this country has had so far in my opinion.

As a citizen of the United States of America, I have a constitutional right to sovereign borders , like every other country in the world. The key word is LEGAL immigration. Disease, crime , chaos , abuses are all that open borders promote . Enforce our decades long , already passed LAWS !!!!! I do not want a new world order or globalization. Fight for our country before it is a thing of the past.

DemocRATS will never secure the border. Their next move is to allow illegals to vote. Our country as we have know it is lost. God help our country.
