U.S. Border Security Council’s Legislative Team Discusses Threat of ISIS with Armed Services Committee Member Walter B. Jones

September on Capitol Hill came to a close with a flurry of hearings examining the President’s plan of action to combat the growing threat of terrorism in the Middle East. Two separate hearings were held on September 18th in the Rayburn House Office Building. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, as well as Secretary of State John Kerry, both testified in front of Congress on the administration’s plan to deal with ISIS.
“There was a lot of skepticism among Congressmen from both sides of the aisle,” stated U.S. Border Security Council National Spokesman Steve LeBlanc. “Many Members of Congress wondered the same thing as our membership, what about our southern border? Is American soil safe from another terrorist attack?”
After the hearing with Defense Secretary Hagel, Project Director Sean Ferritor stopped by the office of Congressman Walter Jones, member of the Armed Services Committee, to discuss the Hagel hearing and what comes next for America. “Congressman Jones is very pro-military but was concerned with losing even a single American soldier by putting boots on the ground,” states Ferritor. “There’s no question that Congressman Jones agreed with our supporters though, that our southern border must be secured as soon as possible.”

Immigration Battle Continues to Rage on Capitol Hill

The House of Representatives recently passed a bipartisan bill to fully fund the Department of Homeland Security, while repealing President Obama’s Executive Action granting amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal aliens.
“Our worst fears have become a reality,” states National Spokesman Steven J. LeBlanc. “And it will only get worse from here, unless Congress steps in to curtail the unilateral actions of a President who views himself as above the law.” Senate Democrats have employed the filibuster strategy to protect the White House from having to veto legislation aimed at curbing his unconstitutional actions regarding immigration.
Both parties are scrambling to find common ground on immigration to avoid a February 27th deadline to fund the Department of Homeland Security. The U.S. Border Security Council has been very active on Capitol Hill identifying the key players in order to make sure that your voices are represented in key negotiations.
“I have reached out to my contacts in Speaker Boehner’s office to make sure that we have the most up to date information,” says LeBlanc. “It’s pretty obvious to all parties involved what the plans of Senate Democrats are: force the shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security before deporting law-breaking illegal aliens,” continued LeBlanc. “And then point fingers and blame the Republicans.”

National Spokesman Steve LeBlanc and Presidential Candidate Allen West Discuss Immigration Reform at Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)

U.S. Border Security Council National Spokesman Steven J. LeBlanc and potential presidential candidate Colonel Allen West joined forces at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference to discuss immigration reform, as well as President Obama’s executive action granting amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal aliens.

“Colonel West is a staunch opponent of the President’s unilateral action granting amnesty to almost half of the nearly thirteen million illegal aliens currently residing in America,” states LeBlanc. “It was refreshing to hear from a potential presidential candidate who stands with America,” continued LeBlanc. “A man who would uphold the current laws of the land instead of constantly breaking our own laws to adhere to a radical agenda like the current President.”

LeBlanc and West agreed that something needs to be done to fix America’s broken immigration system. “We must strengthen our southern border and enforce current immigration laws in America to achieve that goal, not grant amnesty to more than thirteen million people who have entered and stayed in our country illegally,” concluded LeBlanc.

Survey Results Show Americans’ Overwhelming Support for Legislative Strategy

This fall, amid the federal government shutdown, the U.S. Border Security Council conducted a “Border Strategy Survey” and the results are clear: Americans are concerned about border security issues and are in favor of making Congress hear their concerns.

Previously, Representative John Boehner (R-OH), Speaker of the House, publicly discounted the possibility of a House vote on the contentious comprehensive immigration reform, but Fox News reported that the Speaker changed his tune. Now, the feeling on Capitol Hill is that the House may take action to overhaul immigration before the end of 2013.

“Our latest survey clearly shows that this decision is clearly not in step with the values of most Americans,” said U.S. Border Security Council National Spokesman Steve LeBlanc.

When the U.S. Border Security Council asked if we should continue to use petitions to show the politicians in Washington the nationwide opposition to Amnesty Plus, 96% of respondents agreed that it was a good idea.

Another 88% solidly stated that they feel it is a good idea for U.S. Border to generate a steady stream of phone calls and postcards to elected of­ficials (at both the federal and state levels) with their policy positions and concerns regarding our nation’s border security.

Ninety-two percent thought that it was worth­while to continue to reach out to the news media to spread the word about Amnesty Plus.

And, 96% feel that U.S. Border Security Council should continue in its efforts to recruit more sup­porters to fight Amnesty Plus.

The White House and its pro-amnesty allies con­tinue to beat the drum for their version of Amnesty Plus — like the legislation that passed in the Senate earlier this summer. In fact, many leading Repub­licans are leading the charge toward an immigration reform bill. (The lingo is different, but the end result is apt to be the same. We are no longer seeing the politically divisive term “pathway to citizen­ship” used. Instead, pro-amnesty forces are simply calling for “legalization” of buy cialis aliens.)

“The charge from our supporters is clear. Take the fight directly to the halls of Congress,” said Fer­ritor. “Surveys and petitions — and personal letters from our supporters — tell a compelling story to our elected officials. We need each and every supporter to combat efforts to pass Amnesty Plus, expand fed­eral benefits for illegal aliens, and to ignore enforce­ment of current immigration laws already on the books.
