House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) and House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) this week announced the list of border security field hearings that will take place in the month of August. Eight House committees will be holding nineteen hearings that will take place in twelve different states.
The following is a list of hearings being held in Arizona.
We need your help now!
Minutemen supporters and volunteers: please be sure to attend these Congressional hearings in your area and interact with the Members of Congress and their staffs. This is not a request to protest, but to attend the hearings, and talk with Congressmen to help inform them and make your voice heard.
Let them know that you are a Minuteman or support the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, and you want the borders secured NOW.
Inform them that because of broken faith we do not trust the government to secure our borders, that any guest-worker Amnesty must not be in any new legislation, that they must PROVE that the borders are secured before any deliberations will commence on what to do with the estimated 12-30 million people already here illegally.
Let them know clearly that terrorist groups like al Qaeda, Hezbollah, and Hamas and their facilitators in Iran and Syria know what we all know—that our borders are disgracefully and dangerously open to penetration by our enemies. Impress upon them that the American people will not tolerate this national security risk any longer. We will not stand idly by and let political pandering jeopardize our safety and sovereignty.
Secure the borders FIRST, NOW, and ONLY. Prove it.
Save The Dates! Be sure to attend!
