America’s southern border is under attack in a way that we have never experienced before. At the direction of President Obama, the federal government has refused to enforce current immigration law and in turn has allowed thousands of illegal immigrants to enter the United States.
Americans are rightly and understandably fed up.
In an effort to take a stand against the mismanagement of our southern border and to bring awareness to the situation, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) and Overpasses for America joined together to organize “National Days Of Protest Against Immigration Reform Amnesty & The illegal immigration surge.”
On July 18-19 more than 321 protests took place nationwide at state capitals, on overpasses, outside the offices of amnesty supporting lawmakers, and at locations where the Obama is attempting to bus and house illegal aliens.

An event organizer for a New Jersey protest who goes by the name, James “Paul Revere” sat down with me to discuss the border crisis.
We have serious concerns about what’s happening on our southern border. The men, women and children coming over here are not following a lawful process; many of them have diseases and illnesses and the burden to address these issues is falling on the shoulders of this country. It’s not right.
The organizer continued,
People, many who are sick, are being bussed into our cities and towns at the taxpayers expense. Meanwhile our own elected representatives are being denied access to view holding facilities where illegals are being housed.
When asked whether he and his group are against immigration all together, as many on the left claim, he emphatically answered, “absolutely not.”
This nation is a nation of immigrants. There has always been a process by which people can come to this country; a lawful process. It’s not being followed. We believe in lawful immigration and lawful processing of immigrants who wish to be a part of this great nation. But we can’t have anyone and everyone show up at our doorstep and expect to jump the line.
