Action Items

1. Call or email your Congressman and 2 Senators and tell them:
-The president has all the laws and resources he needs to stop the border surge by starting to enforce immigration laws instead of breaking them.
-Do not give the President one penny of his $4.3 million request. He should secure the border, enforce current laws, and end DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

2. Call or email your Congressman and 2 Senators and tell them:
-Allow the Export-Import Bank to expire. No more crony capitalism.
-Allow TRIA (Terrorism Risk Insurance Act) to wind down. It has been 13 years since 9/11, and private insurance companies no longer need this government backstop.
