FORMER BORDER OFFICERS ASK: WHERE ARE THE BARBARA JORDAN’S OF OUR TIME

NA:tional Association of Former Border Patrol Officers (NAFBPO) invoked the memory of the late Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-Texas) by calling on Members of Congress “to not only stop but to reverse the illegal over reach of this administration” on immigration. Barbara Jordan chaired the bipartisan commission that made several recommendations to Congress, including reducing overall immigration numbers and strengthening interior enforcement.

In the letter, NAFBPO quoted Jordan, writing “it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest. Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave.”
The letter also cited polling from conducted by The Polling Company/Woman Trend that found that “seventy five percent of American voters reject President Obama’s executive amnesty and eighty percent do not want foreign workers taking jobs of American Citizens and Legal Immigrants.”
The full letter reads as follows:
The American people are trapped in a conundrum. They find themselves appealing to Congress to effectively address nationwide Immigration Insecurity while fully realizing that Congresses failure to insist that current Immigration Laws are fully enforced is precisely what has lead to the current crises’. Who then will pick up the banner in the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives and rally to the rescue of the disenfranchised American Citizen, the Legal Resident Alien and call for the total abandonment of any pathway to citizenship or amnesty for the undocumented law breakers?
If seventy five percent of American voters reject President Obama’s executive amnesty and eighty percent do not want foreign workers taking jobs of American Citizens and Legal Immigrants why does this administration and members of both political parties continue to push for Amnesty? Clearly it is the pursuit of money and power and not in pursuit of the National Interest.
Listen once again to the words of Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, Democrat Texas, when she stated that for America’s immigration laws to be taken seriously, “it is both a right and a responsibility of a democratic society to manage immigration so that it serves the national interest. Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave. The top priorities for detention and removal, of course, are criminal aliens. But for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process.”
Are you so corrupted in the pursuit of money and power that you will not listen to over seventy-five percent of the electorate? We ask again, who will rally to not only stop but to reverse the illegal over reach of this administration? Where are the Barbara Jordan’s of our times? Where are they?
God Save America,
