We write as patriotic Americans deeply concerned about the safety of the American people strongly support the necessary barriers and border security to protect our country.
For too long, large areas of our southern border have gone unprotected, allowing open corridors for the trafficking of illicit and dangerous drugs into our country. Those drugs make their way into Maine's communities, destroying lives and families.
Beyond drugs, we also know that human trafficking often occurs in these corridors.
News reports indicate that many crimes against our fellow Americans are committed by people who have come into our country illegally.
American border patrol officials strongly support President Trump’s policy on securing our border, and we feel they know what is needed more than anyone else.
We have what is, perhaps, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to truly secure our southern border and begin to fix our immigration system.
We support, in the strongest possible terms, providing our President the funding needed to build the wall and secure our border with his plan to protect America.
President Trump recently said that wealthy politicians don't build walls around their homes because they hate the people on the outside, but because they love the people on the inside. We love the American people.
Now, it is time for all Americans to come together in providing for the common defense, promoting the general welfare, and securing the blessings of liberty for our children and grandchildren, which all greatly depend upon our government securing the borders of our great and sovereign nation.
