...I’m on the list. I encourage you all to sign the petition. I think this is extremely important and if we all agree, let’s do something about it. I stumbled on this site form World Net Daily and was impressed. We Need A Fence is an organization created specifically to the promotion of border security, something completely overlooked from this Administration. Now is the time to further our security by putting a stop to illegal immigrants. OTM (Other Than Mexicans) immigrants are on the rise and needs to be stopped:
"Other Than Mexican" illegal immigrants pose a national security risk to the U.S.
The serious national security threat posed by "Other Than Mexicans" is not widely understood. Approximately 100,000 illegal immigrants entering the United States from Mexico each year are not Mexicans. The Border Patrol refers to these persons as "OTM's" - "Other Than Mexicans"

Illegal immigration is expensive - forcing citizens' taxes higher
In California alone, the annual estimated cost burden of providing education, health care and incarceration for illegal immigrants is over $10 billion:
Education. Californians spend approximately $7.7 billion annually on education for illegal immigrant children. Nearly 15 percent of the K-12 public school students in California are children of illegal aliens.
Health care. Uncompensated medical outlays for health care provided to the state's illegal alien population amount to about $1.4 billion a year.
Incarceration. The cost of incarcerating illegal aliens in California's prisons and jails amounts to about $1.4 billion a year (not including related law enforcement and judicial expenditures or the monetary costs of the crimes that led to their incarceration).

I implore everyone that visits my site to sign the petition and help us defend this great nation. Consider more than just the influx of illegal workers but now, the terrorists that are in our country. This neglect has gone on long enough, we must stop pretending that this isn’t a problem.
