30 Jan Appointment of the Congressional Border Security Committee Conferees
The American people want actual border security, including the building of a wall where needed, the destruction or securing of the tunnels running under our southern border, the swift return to their home countries of all border crossers who do not meet the current US asylum law standards, and adequate funding for border personnel and equipment. Border security is national security, and is vital to a sovereign nation.
Americans who care about this issue should call or email the members of the Border Security Committee Conferees to make our demands known. Voters should hold accountable all members of Congress who fail to stand up for America’s sovereignty.

Some elected Democrats KNOW that they need to do something for border security,
but they are fighting the leadership of the Democrat Party that will not let security happen because they do not want it.
Here are some statements made by some elected Democrats who know their party is on the losing side of this battle.

· Rep. John Garamendi (CA03): “Democrats Have Repeatedly Said That We Will Support Border Security, We Will Support All Of Its Elements Including Fences.”
· Rep. Jared Golden (ME02): ‘Very Frustrated With All The Leadership Right Now’
· Rep. Cheri Bustos (IL17): “If We Have A Partial Wall, If We Have Fencing, If We Have Technology Used To Keep Our Border Safe, All Of That Is Fine.”
· Rep. Adam Smith (WA09): “The Wall Is Not In Itself a Bad Idea…It’s Been Done.”
· Rep. Max Rose (NY11): The shutdown “needs to end now.”

· Rep. Lucy McBath (GA06): ‘If We Don’t Compromise, The American People Are The Ones Who Get Hurt’
· Rep. Abigail Spanberger (VA07): ‘If I am getting comments and contact from my constituents expressing concern that the Democrats are not prioritizing security, then I think we can do better’
