    National VFW Response to Issue of Border Security

    Date: Wednesday, May 23, 2007 2:16 PM
    From: Michael Wysong <>
    Subject: RE: Senate Amnesty Bill

    Col. Harrison:
    U.S. border security and immigration is a major concern and high priority issue for the VFW. The VFW is actively engaged in this issue and is urging the Administration and Congress to fast-track funding to departments and agencies responsible to halt the flow of illegal aliens from entering the U.S.; calling upon the Department of Homeland Security to expedite all initiatives to secure the entire U.S. border and all ports of entry; and insisting that the U.S. government aggressively work to identify all illegal aliens and determine who should be deported.

    We are also calling on Congress to settle bipartisan differences and work together to secure America’s borders and halt potential threats to the safety and security of this nation and its citizens.

    I am a VFW member and a past Post Commander. Request you join the American Legion in opposing the amnesty scam for illegal aliens currently being promoted in the US Senate. It is a travesty that will mean the ruin of our great nation. What we need is enforcement of existing immigration law not new laws that reward aliens who broke into our country illegally.

    This was a very lukewarm response. We need the VFW to stand with the American Legion and oppose this Amnesty bill publicly and nationally!

    Mr. Wysong:

    Read the lukewarm letter you sent to Col. Harrison.

    First of all, the VFW, LIKE THE AMERICAN LEGION, should be FULLY AGAINST AMNESTY for the 12 - 35,000,000 illegals who will eventually cost us, our children, grandchildren and beyond, trillions of dollars.

    Fine companies, businesses and individuals BIG BUCKS for hiring illegals, with prison sentences for repeat hiring. Take away the public dole. With no trough to feed at, these lawbreakers will have no choice but to self-deport.

    As for the politicians.....they are slitting their own throats.

    We, like thousands of others, are tearing up our (republican) voter registration cards and registering independent.

    My forebears came to this country in 1632. They have fought and died in every war since! And they did not fight and die so this country could be sold down the river to Mexico. You are dishonoring the war dead by not fighting THIS WAR.
