Southern GOP Senators of Alabama, Louisiana, & Texas Ignore Northern Border Al Qaeda Terrorist Plot of April 2013 During Immigration HearingsThursday, May 9th, 2013
Where are the so called pro national security people at with regard to the entire border of our country?
Did you know that Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Cornyn (R-TX), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and David Vitter (R-LA) have not taken any action with requesting additional funds regarding northern border security despite a U.S. and Canada foil Al Qaeda terrorist plot to derail New York to Toronto passenger train that occurred just last month in April 2013?
Surely these southern senators know the United States has undocumented Canadians in our Nation, too.
Anti-immigrant hardliners like Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), John Cornyn (R-TX), Ted Cruz (R-TX), and David Vitter (R-LA) have taken strong stances against legal comprehensive immigration reform and many did not support the DREAM Act vote of 2010. Some of these anti-immigrant hardliners have taken shameful stances in equating the Mexican border to terrorism, but where are they at when it comes to the porous Canadian border and actual Al Qaeda as recent as last month?
As a proud woman veteran of our Armed Forces who served during Gulf War I, I believe we should protect all of our borders that touch Canada, the Pacific Ocean, and the Atlantic Ocean, too. Mexican-American veterans are paying very close attention to the actions of our southern Senators as it relates to the Gang of Eight Legal Immigration Reform — specifically in states with heavy Mexican-American population. 2014 and 2016 is just around the corner, and there are approximately 500,000 new “Latin” up and coming of age voters every single year.
