We Must Stop this Border Insanity

As we watch this caravan of over 7,000 migrants approaching our southern border, we are all reminded of why Trump won the 2016 election. He has told us our immigration policy has been broken and it has created a national security crisis that will only be solved once our borders are secure again. This caravan shows just how broken it really is. Probably most who are reading this letter are the sons, grandsons, daughters or granddaughters of an immigrant. We need to be clear: American's are not against immigration, we are simply against unregulated and illegal immigration. When our grandparents came to America, they had to have a sponsor whose role was to help them integrate into society, to learn English, get a job, to become independent and, if necessary, support them until they got on their feet. This diversity made us great. But, what is happening now is completely different. No society can survive thousands upon thousands of people flooding their borders with no existing support system. The result is anarchy, crime and exhaustion of societal resources. This should not be a Democrat issue or a Republican issue, this is an American issue. Few of our Washington representatives are willing to stand strong and address this issue, but Kevin Cramer will. That's why he has earned my vote.
