In a major statement just released, Congressman Lamar Smith, representing the 21st Congressional District of Texas, and Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, demonstrated the kind of common sense that is so often lacking in Washington, DC, today.
Why not secure our borders and get tough on illegal immigration? Our porous borders are currently a free and dangerous pass into our nation for those who wish to do us harm. Why do the Eric Holders and Janet Napolitanos of the world literally recoil at the thought of actually keeping our threats at bay?
ACT! for America salutes the many great men and women in the U.S. Congress who get it. Do not be guilty of “throwing all the bums out”! Be selective. The “bums” need to go, but let’s leave the heroes in place who are providing leadership in Washington, DC—heroes such as Congressman Lamar Smith.
Mr. Smith was one of several Members of Congress who addressed our Legislative Briefing on Capitol Hill this past Tuesday and represents the kind of leadership needed to guide our nation through the rough waters ahead. ACT! for America sincerely thanks him for investing the time and resources to address this critical issue. We stand with him.
