Please call John Radcliffe and tell him to vote NO onHR 399. Capitol Switchboard -- 202-224-3121.Rep. Radcliffe will probably vote for this unless we tell him we have had enough of the eindow dressing. We demand real border security.
OUR PROBLEM WITH H.R. 399, the
'SECURE OUR BORDER FIRST ACT'?
IT DOESN'T 'SECURE OUR BORDER'
DON'T LET GOP ESTABLISHMENT GET
AWAY WITH THIS ROTTEN BETRAYAL
SHOUT DOWN H.R. 399 AND DEMAND
SECURE BORDERS, NOT A SELL OUT
URGENT ALERT: H.R. 399, the "Secure Our Border First Act" – is ANOTHER border betrayal sham by the GOP that MUST be furiously REJECTED by patriots like YOU!
You see, this bill actually instructs the Department of Homeland Security to TEAR DOWN 66 MILES OF FENCING while requiring a pitiful 27 miles of TOTAL new fencing along the 2,000-mile border… for anyone not already doing the mental math, that's a NET LOSS.
"It is remarkable that the direction of our progress is going backwards, from a goal of building 700 miles of double-layer border fencing [in 2006] to only 27 miles [in 2015]," a staffer opposed to the bill told The Hill, adding, "Where the double-layer fence has been put in, it has worked spectacularly. The public is with us 80, 90 percent on this issue."
BUT REPUBLICAN "LEADERSHIP" IS IN FULL SELL OUT MODE – UNLESS YOU HELP US CRUSH THEIR BETRAYAL WITH CITIZEN OUTRAGE!
This 27 miles is the ONLY NEW FENCING in the bill – and our Border Patrol rank-and-file field officers are ALREADY loudly denouncing H.R. 399 as a disastrous breach of trust with the voters who elected the new 114th Congress to SECURE the border.
Texas Republican Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security says extra fencing would be a WASTE OF MONEY – despite construction being a modest $10 billion dollar allocation.
In 2010, Obama claimed the partially built fence "now basically complete." Since then, thanks to Obama and a complicit Congress, the ongoing Mexican and other-than-Mexican influx at the southern border has been swelled by more than 150,000 lower-skilled Central American migrants crossing UNFENCED parts of the border to stay, apply for asylum, and get government benefits and work permits.
At 5 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 26 H.R. 399 is scheduled for review in the House Committee on Rules… YOUR GRASSROOTS RESISTANCE IS NEEDED NOW!
Saudi Arabia is building 1500 miles of FIVE-LAYER fencing along its northern border with Iraq. It comes complete with chain link razor wire, silent alarms, WATCHTOWERS with video and thermal and night vision surveillance, 240 rapid response vehicles, seven command centers, 28 communication towers, and 32 military response stations (equipped with helipads) to keep out illegal immigrants, smugglers AND invading terrorists. There is even a concertina wire barrier rendering the area between fence layers a NO MAN'S LAND.
According to Homeland Security Newswire, British contractor EADS won the bid with KSA to build an estimated 8,000 miles of fencing and surveillance for the Sauds for a reported $2.3-2.8 BILLION. We've spent $1.6 billion just to TEST two types of fences in Arizona. And we're poised to spend another $10 BILLION in this border security betrayal coming before Congress NEXT WEEK – FOR JUST 27 MILES OF NEW FENCING!
It is CORRUPTION, WASTE AND INEFFICIENCY in Washington that is KILLING America – NOT a lack of WILL of the American people to secure our sovereign territory!
Seeing that physically securing its border is such a cost-effective investment of government resources, Saudi Arabia is now considering ANOTHER fence along its border with the imploding terrorist stronghold of Yemen.
Maybe there would be 'change' to spare here in the USA for true border security if the GOP Establishment "leadership" hadn't capitulated and funded Obama's open borders DHS through February!
MAYBE WE JUST NEED TO FLY THE EADS CONTRACTORS OVER HERE?
But we know money is JUST AN EXCUSE.
This sad state of affairs, the pathetic proposed "fixes" that make things worse, the BETRAYAL is infuriating especially after WE showed up on Nov. 4 with a mandate to SECURE OUR BORDERS and STOP OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY.
Oh rest assured, the Establishment Pubbies in the pockets of the cheap-foreign-labor Chamber of Commerce and multinational corporations are already saying the 66 miles of REMOVED FENCE are just being "fixed" – it is pedestrian prevention fencing being "fixed" by replacing it with VEHICLE FENCING… in other words, now wannabe illegals can just drive up to the border and WALK ACROSS ON FOOT.
THE 'FIX' IS IN WITH THIS WIDE-OPEN BORDERS, WAGE-SHRINKING AMNESTY BILL, FOLKS!
Check out these H.R. 399 "fun facts" pointed out by Border Security Hawk Sen. Jeff Sessions in a Jan. 20 statement:
"does not end catch-and-release [of new border crossers]; it does not require mandatory detention and return; it does not include worksite enforcement [and] it does not close dangerous asylum and national security loopholes"…
"does not cut-off access to federal welfare; and it does not require completion of the border fence. … It [also] delays and weakens the longstanding unfulfilled statutory requirement for a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system"…
In other words, IT HELPS OBAMA'S OPEN BORDERS, NO DEPORTATIONS AMNESTY AGENDA!
And this beauty comes complete with a token wrist-slap: Fail to prove "operational control" of the border within five years and political appointees at the DHS will be barred from receiving BONUSES! Oh, the inhumanity… of course, political appointees serve at the PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT.
Is it any wonder this stinking betrayal is being RUSHED through the legislative process by Boehner – complete with SUSPENSION OF THE RULES – with a vote expected BY WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK before they all slink out for a long weekend?
MUST BE NICE.
We have just days to stop this betrayal in its tracks by blasting Congress in D.C. AND home district offices.
With this border betrayal expected to be shoved through Congress NEXT WEEK, we need YOUR URGENT PETITIONS NOW pounding Capitol Hill to get back in line with the American voters who PUT THEM IN OFFICE!
Let's not forget, if this is the "border security" bill… just how bad is every other immigration "reform" bill coming down the chute?
YOUR voice, your petitions make a difference and will help us slam the brakes on this latest Boehner betrayal.
Please, SELECT HERE to BLAST CONGRESS and demand SECURE BORDERS!

Subject: Call Ratcliffe's office
John Ratcliffe's office phone number in Washington is (202) 225-6673.Call him today and let him know how disappointed you are in his vote on Tuesday. I was told he is going to be voting as a conserrvative on the President's Amnesty bill and the pipeline this next week. Well duh!!!! Those are easy votes. He would be STUPID to vote against the pipeline or for amnesty!We needed him to support a fellow Texan in vote for Speaker. He is an easy squish! He 'stuck his finger in the air" to see which way the wind is blowing. He got a TON of calls asking him to vote for Louie. He wasn't willing to risk anything, which means he wants to be there for a long time. He cares more about the office than the people he represents!Call his office today (202) 225-6673.
