Governors : End Illegal Immigration
This petition is now closed.
Politicians in state, county, and city governments across
the nation are thumbing their noses at federal law in order to harbor illegal
aliens. A majority of Americans agree that federal state, and local enforcement efforts to end illegal immigration have been "grossly inadequate."
Illegal immigration enforcement is deeply important to every local, state, and federal taxpayer. When people come to this country illegally, they affect our lives in many ways and without a doubt, a portion of the true cost of illegal immigration is hidden in the taxes we pay.
A modest estimate places the cost of illegal immigration on the U.S. taxpayer at $134.9 billion per year, with only a fraction of that ever recouped.
The consequences of illegal immigration are beyond dispute. We need stronger and more vigorous enforcement of our immigration laws.
Our borders will only be secure when state and local sanctuary city policies are dismantled and federal immigration laws are fully enforced.
By signing this petition, I tell my governor to uphold the rule of law and end illegal immigration now.
