This Issue: Local communities watching our new map for federal plans to fill them with latest illegal aliens from the border surge
The map below has quickly become a galvanizing image of the assault the federal government is making on local communities as it moves tens of thousands of illegal aliens into them soon after they cross our borders without permission.
U.S. Senate office sent a mass email about the map almost as soon as we
posted it. That seems to have triggered the Drudge Report earlier today
posting a link to the map. So many people clicked that they
temporarily brought our website to its knees. But our tech department
got everything fully functioning to handle the traffic in about an
At the bottom of this email, you can quickly catch up with some of the most important news about community efforts to resist these federal relocations
and about various political proposals for alternative handling of the
current storming of our southwest border by Central Americans.
Melanie Oubre is notifying our members as soon as we get information
about federal efforts in their community. We are pleased that so many
NumbersUSA members have been involved in the resistance thus far.

WHY 'HUMANITARIAN' RELOCATIONS ARE THREAT TO HUMANITY
of your friends and neighbors -- perhaps even you -- have a tendency to
have sympathy for the open-borders advocates' argument that it is a
humanitarian obligation to move the minors arriving at our border to
shelters around the United States.
In fact, this
mass 'humanitarian' transportation of illegal aliens from our borders
into our interior threatens to create far more danger, abuse, rape,
illness and even death for Central American teens.
all of those terrible things are happening to the young Central
Americans as they make the arduous journey to our border and because the
only reason they are doing it is because they believe they have a
chance of remaining in this country.
story about a busload of illegal aliens arriving in a U.S. community
will spur at least five more busloads of minors to risk their dignity,
health and lives to leave Central America.
in mind that very few minors were making this journey until the Obama
Administration went around Congress and gave work permits
to hundreds of thousands of younger illegal aliens two years ago. The
number storming our border has increased rapidly as the news media have
trumpeted around the world that if Congress doesn't pass an even-larger
amnesty the Administration will grant the amnesty on its own.
THAT is why this mass movement to our border is happening.
Obama and other Administration officials have repeatedly said in the
last two weeks that Central Americans must know that they will not be
allowed to stay if they show up at the border. That they will
eventually be required to go home.
In other words, the Obama Administration agrees with me that the only way to stop the surge is for Central American communities to see all their neighbors returning from the U.S.
The problem is that the Administration is NOT sending the minors back to Central America. Not many, anyway.
Central America is seeing the Federal government quietly attempt to
relocate the "Surgers" without consulting local residents.
is important that the news in Central America contain very different
images and signals of UNwelcome -- in order to reduce the number of
minors enticed into the dangers of a trip north.
the truly humanitarian actions are coming from those who are showing up
at city council meetings to protest relocations and who are physically
blocking the arrival of buses.
Members of Congress are becoming bolder. This week, 32 U.S.
Representatives signed a letter authored by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA)
calling on President Obama to immediately end the failed policies,
specifically DACA, that have encouraged the Surgers to come. If your
Member of Congress signed the letter, we have posted faxes for you to
thank them for their leadership.
Rep. Randy Weber (R-TX) introduced H.R. 5014, the Illegal Entry
Accountability Act of 2014, which would suspend aid to Mexico, Honduras,
Guatemala, and El Salvador until Congress determines that sufficient
action is taken to stop the Surge.
WHERE SHOULD 'SURGERS' BE RELOCATED?
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) yesterday offered a very sensible proposal:
than 92 percent of these individuals who have been part of the recent
influx at our southern border come from must three countries El
Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, Gosar wrote to the Federal Emergency
my top three suggestions for shelter locations are as follows:
Guatemala City, Guatemala; San Salvador, El Salvador; Tegucigalpa,
the few Surgers who have truly legitimate reasons to fear their
neighbors (not the government), they can be sheltered in their own
country while alternate settlement can be found -- in THEIR country.
These are not countries where nobody is able to live safely. It will
be much cheaper to run the shelters in those countries than in U.S.
moving everybody to shelters in their own country should stop the
storming of our border because it will clarify in a way that the Obama
Administration has failed to do thus far that you will not be rewarded
for coming across our borders uninvited.
INDEPENDENCE DEPENDS ON REAL BORDERS
I wish you a celebratory Independence Day, we are reminded that true
independence requires continuing vigilance and efforts of all citizens.
actions through your customized NumbersUSA Action Board and in response
to alerts from Melanie are definitely in keeping with the efforts of
our nation's founders who sought to create a national community with a
government dedicated to serving the interests of the members of that
community. None of that can exist for any people without clearly defined
and clearly enforced borders.

In a followup town hall meeting, an overflow crowd, including the citys
mayor Alan Long, strongly objected to the federal gambit.
About 400 people attended a town hall to speak out against holding
illegal aliens at a local Federal Law Enforcement Training center. Only a
few spoke out in favor of helping the illegal aliens. City and federal
officials heard from residents who are afraid the illegal aliens might
take jobs from locals and resources away from American-born children.
Ginger Kelly said the illegal aliens are getting assistance while some
locals lack food and health insurance.
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), who represents the border sector most
impacted by the ongoing border crisis, bucked Pres. Obama and his
party's leadership by saying that the United States should deport all
illegal border crossers immediately, regardless of what country they're
from. Cuellar said that's the policy the U.S. has for illegal border
crossers from Mexico, and the country should treat all illegal border
crossers the same.
Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) was denied access to the illegal-alien
housing facility at Ft. Sill in Oklahoma yesterday. The facility is
housing 1,200 illegal aliens who were relocated after being caught and
processed by Border Patrol agents in Texas. The facility is currently
under the control of Health and Human Services.

WHEN THEY SAY: immigration reform
WHAT THEY WANT: uncontrolled immigration
the term "reform" is used almost universally in the media and by
politicians to include work permits and legal status for illegal aliens,
and increasing legal immigration from the current million or more a
of CONTROLLED IMMIGRATION which we favor, they want very high numbers
of foreign workers and their families that are not tied to the real
needs of the American people.
it is possible that a person favoring "controlled immigration" might
use the term, be wary of anybody advocating for "immigration reform."

HOUSE REPUBLICANS: END BORDER SURGE BY ENDING POLICIES GIVING ILLEGAL ALIENS SPECIAL TREATMENT UNDER THE LAW
House Republicans joined Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., in a letter to
the president calling on him to end the policies that have caused the
surge of illegal border crossings. The letter calls on Obama to end the
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and to forego
policies that give the recent illegal border crossers or other illegal
