TOP 5 REASONS: Why We Must Secure the U.S. Southern Border

March 15, 2023

Two of America's many evergreen principles are respecting the rule of law and protecting our nation from those that would do us harm, but the border crisis is a result of the Biden-Harris Administration's attack on these principles.

From national security to economic security, there are many reasons to secure our border... but here are the most pressing reasons.

The U.S.-Mexico border crisis has far-reaching implications on America's national security, economy, sovereignty, and way of life. In our latest podcast episode, we explore the top five reasons why securing our border is of utmost importance:

  1. National Security: Securing the border is vital for preventing terrorists and criminal organizations from entering the country and causing harm to American citizens. A strong border defense minimizes the risk of these threats to our nation's safety.
  2. Economic Security: Illegal immigration strains the economy, affecting American jobs and wages. By securing the border, we protect American jobs and ensure fair wages for all workers, contributing to a more robust economy.
  3. Protecting American Sovereignty: The United States has the right to control its borders and enforce its immigration laws. Securing the border preserves our nation's sovereignty and upholds the rule of law, a cornerstone of our exceptional way of life.
  4. Protecting American Communities: Illegal immigration can lead to higher crime rates and put a strain on local communities. A secure border helps keep out criminals and reduces the burden on American communities, promoting a safer and more prosperous nation.
  5. Protecting the American Way of Life: As a nation built on the principles of freedom and opportunity, unchecked illegal immigration undermines the values that make America great. By securing our border, we preserve our way of life and ensure that the United States remains a beacon of hope for all.
