BORDER QUOTES
WHAT GREAT MINDS OF OUR GENERATION ARE SAYING

Failure to properly control our borders costs citizens in many ways: schools become overcrowded, medical resources are stretched too thin, other government services are overtaxed, and taxes increase further

Zach Wamp

We can control our borders, we just choose not to

Tom Tancredo

Our system was not set up to for the government to be able to do with a man’s kingdom what they want. It was set up to protect that man’s kingdom, to allow him to feel that his borders, no matter how great or small, would always be secure and that he would always be allowed to defend them
