They Let Me Down-They Let America Down
A few months ago I was happy to see that legislation passed to build a border fence. Now I read our President and some Senators have let me down.
Six months after approving a bill promising to build some 850 miles of fence along the U.S.-Mexico border, the Bush administration and Senate Republicans are now saying 370 miles is enough.(LINK)
Presidential candidate Duncan Hunter, who authored the legislation is pissed. I am too. The bill passed yet now they are not funding it.
"I drafted that bill. It says 'shall.' That's the same language we put in the border fence in San Diego," said Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican. "Doggone it, this is the law. Follow the law."
Duncan Hunter is serious about securing the nation. The fence in his district cut traffic by 90%. You can see the video here. There is no other candidate who can touch Hunter on border security. It is sad the leadership will not follow through on the legislation passed just a few months ago. I am tired of the issue of border security not being taken seriously. When the party calls asking for my money I will send it to Duncan Hunter instead. You should too. Michael Ryan writes:
Once again, President Bush has sold conservatives down the river with respect a linchpin issue. And once again Duncan Hunter proves he is a true conservative willing to stand up to the GOP and represent his values and his constituency. The message is quite clear. We cannot be a sovereign nation without effective border and immigration policy. Mr. Bush seems too concerned with garnering favor for the GOP among Latinos than with executing the duties of his office. Kudos to Rep. Hunter for helping keep the discussion on point.
I for one am sick of it.
