Dear Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan,

We send this letter to you, as representatives of your respective bodies in the U.S. Congress.

Last November 8th, the American people sent a clear message to those who represent them in Washington, D.C.: 

We want leaders who are not afraid to cast political correctness in the garbage, and who will be strong enough to make the difficult decisions required to make America a safer place to call home, and restore it to greatness once more.

So far, we have not seen any of that change from many of those who represent us in the U.S. Congress, particularly with regard to national security issues.  All we have seen is more of the same:  A lot of talk.  A lot of excuses.  And a lot of criticism against our 45th President.

We’ve seen everything except action. This is unacceptable.

We want sound national security legislative policies enacted and enacted now, particularly regarding the following issues:

Refugee Vetting

We fully support President Trump’s efforts to temporarily ban refugees from targeted, dangerous areas around the world – until effective policies can be put in place to keep our nation safe.  Further, we support the implementation of strong vetting policies, so that those who wish to do our country and its citizens harm are prevented from accessing our shores.

These matters must be addressed by the U.S. Congress now.

Support for Law and Order

We have been watching law and order degrade throughout our nation for years – including gang violence, disrespect for our law enforcement communities and, most recently, efforts to squash free speech by groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

We have always proudly supported those in our community who put their own lives on the line to protect our citizens and our democratic freedoms, including our state and local law enforcement and certainly our men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces. 

The United States Congress must do a better job of demonstrating that it is working to return law and order to our nation; and that it opposes groups that seek to undermine our constitutional freedoms, especially through the use of violence, like Antifa.

Specifically, Antifa must be designated as the domestic terrorist organization that it is.

Defending our Borders

Protecting the borders of our nation from those who wish to do us harm – or who break our immigration laws – is of great importance to us. 

We fully support President Trump’s efforts to BUILD THE WALL.

All requested funding for the wall and any other border security initiatives that are needed at this time must be appropriated immediately.  We have not forgotten that the primary duty of those in the federal government is to protect the nation and its citizens.

We won’t turn our backs on this.  BUILD THE WALL.

Defeating ISIS

We support President Trump’s efforts to provide our military with what they need to defeat ISIS and all other affiliated Islamist groups who share its barbaric ideology. 

We expect the same from you. 

Specifically, we expect our legislators to call the enemy by name: Radical Islamic terrorism; and to provide to our military with the means to eradicate it from this world.

Designating the Muslim Brotherhood a Foreign Terror Organization

The Muslim Brotherhood is the oldest Islamic terror organization in the world and has served as the “mothership” for jihadists for almost a century.

We fully support the Muslim Brotherhood Terror Designation Act, legislation that is pending in both the U.S. House and Senate. 

The legislation has been pending in your respective bodies for years. The United States must join Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, and declare the Muslim Brotherhood as a terror group. Our continued timidity on this matter will only allow this dangerous group to continue spreading terror and violence across the globe.

The Muslim Brotherhood Terror Designation Act must be passed through Congress now.

We respect President Trump as a leader who has rolled up his sleeves to get to work on the promises he made to the American people during last year’s campaign. 

He is clearly ready to do so.  Are you?

We will be watching over the coming months to see if the policies the American people have clearly demanded are enacted.  If they are not, you can be sure that the voters will speak loudly at the ballot box next November. 

Sincerely,
