ACT For America

Unity --

Recently, several immigration reform proposals were unveiled before the American public.  This includes immigration reform legislation introduced in both the House and Senate, and -- most recently -- a proposal put forth by President Trump, which we expect to hear more about during tonight’s State of the Union Speech.  

To be clear, as the nation’s largest national security grassroots advocacy organization, ACT for America has one main goal when it comes to reforming our broken immigration system: Keeping our nation secure.  

Right now, our broken immigration system leaves us dangerously vulnerable.  The devastating terrorist attacks that have taken place on U.S. soil over the years provide ample evidence of this fact.

‚ě°All of the 9/11 hijackers were foreign-born and entered America through temporary visas; some illegally overstayed their visas

‚ě° Sayfullo Saipov entered America via the Diversity Visa Lottery & murdered 8 people in New York City

‚ě°Akayed Ullah entered America via chain migration & detonated a bomb near the Port Authority in NYC

‚ě°Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, who fired at police officers in Pennsylvania, entered from Egypt through chain migration

How many more of these attacks must take place before our government wakes up? How many more Americans must be victims of terrorism on U.S. soil? How much clearer can American voters be that protecting our nation through immigration reform is a top priority?

The good news is that there is a piece of legislation before Congress that will take a much-needed first step in fixing our immigration system, and in a more than fair and equitable way.

Though not perfect, H.R. 4760, the Securing America's Future Act,  introduced by Congressmen Goodlatte, McCaul, Labrador and McSally, is a permanent solution to addressing our nation’s broken immigration system.  

Not only does the bill provide for merit-based immigration and help to protect us from terror attacks, but it also addresses permanent solutions to prevent illegal entry into our country. Here are just a few key components that make passing this bill so critical:

  • Kate's Law
  • E-Verify mandatory
  • Ends chain migration
  • Authorizes the border wall
  • Decreases immigration by 25%
  • Ends the Diversity Visa Lottery
  • DOJ can withhold $ to sanctuary cities
  • Increases green cards for skilled workers
  • 5,000 more agents & 5,000 more officers

 

As our federal legislators debate which proposal to move forward, they must hear that there is strong support for H.R. 4760 in their communities.  The more support this bill has, the better its chance of moving forward through the legislative process.

So please take action today. Click HERE to contact your federal legislators, and express your support for H.R. 4760, the Securing America’s Future Act.  It will only take a minute of your time but your voice is critically important.

The U.S. Congress must fix our broken immigration system -- before the next terrorist takes advantage of our current vulnerabilities. and forward this alert to everyone you know who wants the U.S. secure, now and for future generations.

Thank you for all that you do on behalf of our country.  Always remember: If each of us does just a little, together we will accomplish a lot.
