This week, dozens of big business groups will help fly conservative business owners, faith leaders, farmers, and law enforcement officials in to Washington to push for a blanket amnesty. And just this morning, House Speaker John Boehner told reporters at his press briefing that he would still like to pass an immigration bill before the end of the year.

It's important that Congress hears from you before next week's fly-in!

The McCaul-Jackson Lee border bill, H.R.1417, has already passed through the House Homeland Security Committee with bipartisan support, and it is likely Speaker Boehner may bring this bill to the House floor, thus making it the potential vehicle for conference with the Senate amnesty bill.

The bill - improperly called the Border Security Results Act - will do anything but deliver results on the border. The bill weakens current law and simply calls for the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to develop a plan to secure the border. Should DHS not implement its own plan, the bill only requires the Secretary to send a report to Congress explaining why.

The bill also weakens current federal law in at least three major areas:

Current law requires DHS to achieve and maintain full operational control of both land and maritime borders, but H.R.1417 only requires submission of a plan to gain control of high traffic areas and the Southwest border.
Current law defines operational control as the prevention of all unlawful entries, but H.R.1417 changes the definition to a 90% apprehension rate of all known unlawful entries as determined by DHS.
Current law requires a biometric entry/exit system at all ports of entry, but H.R.1417 allows DHS to replace a biometric system with an alternate plan.

The bill has already received accolades from amnesty advocates, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee. Rep. Jackson-Lee is a lead sponsor of the bill, while Rep. Pelosi has removed the Senate's border security plan from her amnesty bill (H.R.15) and replaced it with the McCaul-Jackson Lee bill.

NO! to this bill... SECURE OUR BORDER!!!   ALL OF IT 100%

No to immigration action.

My email to RINOL: ander crenshaw not that he will read it, care, or dare go against the demoncrap parter:  "Please Do NOT vote for H.R. 1417 the McCaul-Jackson Lee bill. Remember your oath "to protect The Constitution of the United States of America." Please do NOT give America away PLEASE!!!

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…
