CLOSE THE DAMN BORDERS
Jack Buneta, Pahrump, NV, ARMY, Sgt, 1967-1969
As the grandson of legal immigrants, I am proud to have served my country during the Vietnam War. My wife and I appreciate your efforts in securing America's borders and protecting the rights of legal, hardworking, taxpaying citizens of the United States. We believe the USA can still be the best nation Under God! Take Care, Dr. & Mrs. Stephen P. Hayes

As a "first" generation American I staunchly support secure borders.
My father came here to become an "American" from Germany to escape the very things going on now.

I am a member of the veterans party.
and I am ashamed as to how our leaders ignor and treat the U.S. Citizen
John Plunkett, Abilene, TX, Army, E-7, 1969-1982
I have written, called my Senate and Congress Represenative.
We have to stop bush, kennedy, mccain and the others
who think our Constitution is just a piece of paper.
Jonathan Stuart, Traphill, NC, USAF, SSgt, 1966-1969
When I enlisted I swore to protect this nation from both foreign and domestic enemies. Again my nation calls and again I will gladly serve.

I come from a family that has sacrificed much for this country and would not hesitate to do it again. My grandparents came to this country from Italy in the late 1800's. They loved the USA,learned English and raised their children as Americans and to love America as you would a mother.
My Father fought in the South Pacific with Honor and Valor with the USMC in WW-II. He was severely wounded twice lost many of his USMC brothers. That love of country was passed down to me and it is a natural love in my children.
My Wife and Children sacrificed much while I served my country over the years. I think of my Military brothers I have lost and It makes me sick yo my stomach how the elected officials are giving away my country.I am very disapointed in the President. How are our children expected to understand that they must obey the laws of this country but the Illegal Aliens are exempt? I am still recovering from injuries received on my last deployment to Iraq in 2003. When I get my final 2 surgeries I will be ready to take a more active role in securing our borders and the sovereignty of America. I will not forget those who paid for this country with their lives and blood . I will do whatever I can to make sure their sacrifice was NOT in vain !!!

I Think we the citizen of this great nation should take back our country and remove, fire, or do away with this DO NOTHING CONGRESS,lets start there. They are suppose to protect this country, and its citizens, and the constitution. Remember the oath they took?What they are doing is illegal! If they pass any law that would make these illegal mexicans legal, then all the laws already in place are void and mean nothing. IF YOU WANT A WAR AT HOME. JUST KEEP DOING NOTHING. WE'RE NOT ALL ASLEEP OR LEAD AROUND BY THE NOSE.JUST TRY AND TAKE MY COUNTRY.
james DeLamorton, Yuba City, CA, Army, sgt E-5, 1967-1969
I'm not against immigration legally, but I didn't serve for 20 years to have possible terrorists enter because no one is checking! Those in leadership obviously don't care what we did to defend our nation since they allow anyone and everyone to enter. God Bless America!
Richard Stevens, Denver, CO, Army, SSG, 1980-2000
We are no longer a land of laws by the people, for the people and if the government cannot govern by the law then we should 1 by 1 succeed from the Union. This government is like a third rate mafia (extort taxes and says we will protect you). We pay big taxes for protection and we have chaos at our door's. We now demand a Tony Soprano protecting the Border. Instead we get Tony the cock-eyed gunslinger that looks and acts like Barney Fife (Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff) with the 1 bullet to his name kept in safe keeping in his breast pocket to keep from hurting himself. Corruption has no place in our leadership. These people that call themselves our leaders (by the people; for the people) and expect us to follow them blindly... I say NO MORE .... Fraud, Waste and abuse of power is out of control and it's time to say like the Donald "Your Fired"
Michael Amos, Naples, FL, Army, SFC, 1980-2001
Secure our borders and preserve our country
Terry Youngblood, Fort Worth, TX, USAF, E-4, 6 years
NO amnesty in any form!
(1) Absolutely seal the borders, using manpower (possibly military manpower) and electronics, so that no one gains entry without adequate proof. No more namby-pamby handling of illegal aliens by the border patrol (or their instructors).
(2) Develop a foolproof ID card (not Soc Sec, nor Driver's Lic), and require every legal person in the U.S. to carry it. Any person must present it upon request from anyone in authority, federal, state, county, or local, or pay consequences.
(3) Require all employers to verify that every employee, current or past, is legally in the U.S. by viewing this card - under heavy fine and/or imprisonment of employers who do not adheed.
(4) Deport all those who are asked, and fail to show, a legal-resident card, but let attrition take care of those who are not caught in this way. Without job availability, they will all soon return to their native country.

Proud member of the Constitution Party working for secure American borders and smaller federal government!
Timothy L. Polk, Wichita Falls, TX, USN, E-6, 1973-1993
We must secure or borders. I can't belive or elected officials won't defend or Country as our brother veterans have. I pledge to vote against any politician who doest not make his stand clear on this issue.Iam tired of years of double talk.
Darryl Jeffries, Tebbetts, MO, USAF, E-5, 1971-1978
Great site, I will be refering many. Keep up the good work.
Josh Griffin, Oceanside, CA, USMC, Corporal, 2003-present
without secure borders, chaos rains within.
Arthur Winans, Florence, TX, Army retired, SFC E7, 1964-1985
I do not believe in open borders. Illegal immigration is wrong, it is a crime to enter a country without permission. It is time Hispanic-Americans stand up and say "no more illegal immigration".
Felix Delgado, Glendale, AZ, USA, MSG, 1986-2005
i truly suppot this mission to stop this invasion and get our country back thank you . norman cray
cray norman, summerville, SC, us navy, sa ret., 1951 1952
It's about time somebody stood up on their hind legs to defend this country. I have nothing against immigrants, regardless of their national origin or religion or race -- I do have a problem with those who come in illegally, then demand special treatment while breaking our laws, overburdening schools, hospitals and the welfare system. Those are not immigrants, they are criminals and are not to be tolerated.
