    Congressmen Call for National Guard to Secure Border

    Congressmen Call for National Guard to Secure Border

    Joshua Cook 1 hour ago

    Congressmen Steve King (R-IA), Walter Jones (R-NC), Thomas Massie (R-Ky), and Jeff Duncan (R-SC) are the few leaders in Washington who are trying to take action on America's southern border.
    The first item on their agenda: secure the border.
    In a press release this weekend, Rep. Jones called on border state governors to deploy their National Guard forces to gain control of the border and turn back any individuals attempting to cross without legal immigration status.
    Rep. Jones cosponsored H. Res. 675, which would make this request of the governors of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California as well as recognize and defend the constitutional authority of any governor to deploy the National Guard to secure the border.
    "In order to resolve the crisis on our southern border, we need to strictly enforce our immigration laws – something the Obama administration has failed to do," said Congressman Jones. "Securing our borders and deporting individuals who have arrived illegally sends a clear message that such behavior will not be rewarded with citizenship in the future, and the National Guard is critical to this effort."
    Rep. Jones, along with other Congressmen, seem to be taking the first step by using a common sense approach to immigration – similar to what Congressman Ron Paul suggested in his book Liberty Definedby simply "enforcing the laws already on the books."
    Below are excerpts from Ron Paul's Liberty Defined on fixing our current immigration problem:
    Enforce the laws now on the books with more border guards; permit states to enforce the law; allow landowners to provide private property security assistance, just as we do every day throughout the United States, and to work with Federal Border Control authorities. Private landowners have a right to post No Trespassing signs on their property to achieve this.

    Do not grant automatic citizenship to children of illegal immigrants born in the United States, deliberately or accidentally.
    Stop all federal mandates on the states to provide free education and medical care for illegal immigrants. The absurdity that South Texas schools are overburdened with Mexican children going back and forth over the border each day to our public school systems is resented by cash-strapped school districts.
    End the drug war. The deteriorating economic conditions and the mess with immigration invite the violence of the drug lords and corrupt officials on both sides. It's time to break up the coalition of the religious drug warriors and the drug dealers who fight any effort to decriminalize drugs. It's time to treat all drugs the way we treat alcohol and cigarettes, substances that kill millions more than hard drugs do.
    With free markets and private property, a need for immigrant labor becomes obvious. Make it legal and easy with a generous visitor work program.
    Immigrants who can't be sent back due to the magnitude of the problem should not be given citizenship—no amnesty should be granted.

    Illegal immigrants creating "the magnitude of the problem" really were not the problem. American government was and we must not yield to those that say the problem is too large. If we do that, we did not slam and lock the door! Dang, cannot they see what led to this in the first place, it is simple, if you are an alien you must go!
