"Secure Our Borders" is an ACT for America activism campaign focused on raising awareness to the issues surrounding our country's national security. We believe there is nothing wrong with making sure the people entering our country don't want to harm us. This campaign is about the following issues:
- Securing our borders
- Ending chain migration
- Ending the diversity lottery
- Enforcing stronger immigrant vetting practices
Below is a petition you can sign to show your support for our issues.
Securing Our Borders starts with making sure that the people entering our country do not want to harm us.
On October 31st, 2017, Sayfullo Saipov drove a rented pickup truck down a New York City bike path, murdering eight innocent people. Sayfullo was born in Uzbekistan and entered America through a Diversity Visa Lottery. Similarly, Akayed Ullah detonated a pipe bomb near the Port Authority in NYC on December 11th, 2017. Akayed entered the United States through chain migration. In both of these instances, had President Trump’s common sense vetting been in place, neither Sayfullo nor Akayed would have been able to carry out terrorism. It is evident that America does need a more qualified vetting system, as terrorists infiltrated two of our immigration programs. What is also clear is that there is nothing racist or xenophobic about making sure the people we allow into our country do not want to murder us, as we have consistently seen in New York City.
This is why we need Congress to pass the "Securing America's Future Act" HR4760.
