Feedback by supporters of Veterans for Secure Borders, page 17
definately in favor for closing the borders and securing this country, and expelling all those without citizenship.
James [Jim] Lowe, Lahaina, HI, Navy, E-4 AO INTEL, 1973-1975
I am totally infuriated right now involving the situation with our borders. I am in the military and fight to support our security and freedom and it is really hard to do when we have an open border policy. It is also difficult when we have our president and district attorney's taking the sides of drug smugglers instead of our own agents. I never thought that I would see the day when this would happen in America. We need to stand together and get the borders closed and make sure that this is still a government for the people by the people. I pray for the two border patrol agents and their safety. I hope that Mr. Bush will come to realize that the real criminal here is Mr. Sutton and he has been for a long time now. God bless.

We must all band together before we lose our once great country !!!

American lives and tax dollars are being poured into democracy for the Iraqis, something that can never survive. American workers are being displaced by illegal aliens because they turn a house into a commune for dozens of people so they can live here and send half their income out of the country. Our people lose good jobs and have to fight a losing battle for low paying jobs that go to the illegals. If they started counting citizens who have run out of unemployment benefits and stopped counting illegals who are grabbing available jobs the unemployment rate would be more like 10 to 15 percent. If we don't control our borders first, we'll never be able to do anything about the criminal element streaming into this country. Hundreds of thousands of gang members, killers, thieves, rapists and we are expected to make them welcome? Even the decent ones are still breaking the law. Tax dollars used to be used to build our superstructure, roads, bridges, dams, schools and provide services for the welfare of our citizens. Now funding for all of these has been cut often while we fund unnecessary wars, corporate subsidies, tax breaks for the wealthy, welfare for illegals (we tell our own people to get a job but we send the good jobs overseas.), billions for bilingual (spanish,not vietnamese or swahili or any other language)education and legal representation. Our superstructure is literally crumbling. We keep wages low while the cost of everything is doubling and tripling every few years. At this rate it won't be long before the civil war we'll have to worry about will be carried out here. All those guns of all kinds that the GOP insists everyone should have will be shedding blood in our own streets. Desparation will drive good people to do things they otherwise would never do. Our government needs to start working for americans again instead of working for the rest of the world.

What good are all these other programs and debates if we are giving our country away to illegal aliens?
Steve Nelson, Highland, NY, Army, E-4, 1968-1974
I have an idea that I've tried to get this out. On sept. 11th, 2007 Legal americans, Soldiers Spend a day either on the border or around there own state Capital building. Evidently our government is not listening. I am a disabled vet and I will go. I've been there. We've heard from those who are against us having a secure border now let them hear us.

It is disgusting that tax money is being spent to benefit people who are here illegally.
Allen Thomsen, Hibbing, MN, USAR, Specialist 4, 1986 - 1994
Our country will never be safe, with out secure borders.
Kenton Leach, Black Canyon City, AZ, Navy, HM2, 1977-1988
You guys are awesome. I hope that with this organization we can change the current status of our borders and agents and get some security back at our borders!

I'm not a veteran, I didn't serve during a war. I don't know if that makes me acceptable or not. Whatever, I still support you.

Lets arm and go to the border and protect it.

I have taken an Oath for the military in 1967, and just because I'm no longer in the Army dosn't mean it does not stand today. If it comes to fighting on our own soil to save our country then, COUNT ME IN.
COCKED AND LOCKED ON TARGET

We as a nation owe to the millions who have served, sacrificed and made the ultimate sacrifice for this great Republic of ours. Our nations enemies both foreign, and especially domestic have laid siege on America and her sacred constitution. Thank You God, for groups such as yours who will stand up and defend her honor.

you need a ticket to get in not come in and then get a ticket
Jon Randall, Monroe, OR, usaf, sgt, 1968-1972
I'm in support 100%. I'm tried of having my tax dollars pay for these illegals instead of our own people.
Robert Yoast, Savanna, OK, US Army, PVT E-2, 1974-1978
If Eisenhower could deport 1 million with 50's technology, why can't we do better in the 21st. century?
