Ben Quayle Challenges Obama on Border Security


As Barack Obama scrambles for an election-year foothold, he reaffirms the notion that he’ll say and do anything to get reelected.

Most recently, the casualty in his self-interested calculations has been your security.
Members of his own party have expressed outrage at White House leaks of sensitive national security information, obviously contrived to facilitate media portrayals of the community organizer president as a grim and determined terror warrior.
Then on Friday, the Obama Administration announced it would bypass Congress and rewrite the nation’s immigration laws. The President unilaterally decided how the immigration problem should be addressed and in doing so, undermined our border security and entire immigration system.

The power our propagandist president purports to exercise here does not belong to him. His first obligation is to the Constitution, and all of the American people, and not to his reelection campaign.

The fact of the matter is, before new immigration policies are implemented, our border must be secured.

This week Congressman Ben Quayle introduced a bill to stop Obama’s immigration policy power play. The “Prohibiting Back-Door Amnesty Act of 2012” will nullify the immigration policy changes outlined by President Obama. In addition to stopping these policy changes, the bill will also prevent any similar executive overreaches from occurring.

This is not the first time Rep. Quayle has taken the lead on border control and security enforcement.

  • He sponsored the successful Border Tunnel Prevention Act of 2012, which increases criminal penalties for constructing, financing, or using cross-border smuggling tunnels.
  • He sponsored a bill to provide U.S. customs and Border Protection with access to Federal lands to carry out certain security activities in the Southwest border region.
  • He cosponsored the Legal Workforce Act, which would mandate e-verify for new hires.
  • He cosponsored the Nuclear Family Priority Act to end chain migration.
  • He cosponsored the Birthright Citizenship Act, which eliminates birthright citizenship.
  • He cosponsored Clear Law Enforcement for Criminal Alien Removal Act, which reimburses law enforcement agencies for the costs associated with incarcerating illegal aliens.
  • He voted in support of the Cravaack Amendment that would keep violent illegal aliens in custody.
Congressman Quayle continues to gain attention for his leadership on immigration enforcement and border security. Just recently, the immigration enforcement advocacy group “Numbers USA” granted Rep. Quayle an ‘A’ grade, ranking him the highest in the Arizona delegation.

Ben Quayle is the serious conservative representing your interests and working hard to challenge the liberal Administration and tackle the issues that are raging in Washington. We need conservative leaders like Ben Quayle in Congress.

A donation of $50, $25 or even $10 would go a long way to making sure that we keep Ben Quayle's effective leadership in Washington.
