Tell Obama to secure our borders

From RandPAC:

Medicine is my first calling.

That's why I was so humbled this past week to travel to Guatemala as part of a medical mission to help conduct pro bono surgeries and distribute eye glasses to help restore or improve sight.

Medicine and surgery have always been my passion and I was grateful for the opportunity to help those in need.

While I was in Guatemala, I also met with President Otto Perez Molina to discuss the current immigration crisis.

He agreed to review his country's policy of banning American families from adopting Guatemalan children.

Enacted in 2008 at the urging of our State Department in order to conform to the United Nations Hague Convention on Intercountry Adoption, this law blocked the tens of thousands of adoptions each year by American families of Guatemalan children.

Now there are zero adoptions.

In place of adoptions, thousands of immigrant children are now streaming illegally across our borders.

Rolling back this misguided policy is one step in solving our border crisis.

You see, the root cause of the debacle on our southern border doesn't lie in Guatemala.

The heart of this crisis is the lawless executive orders issued by President Obama.

President Obama created magnets for tens of thousands of men, women, teenagers - and even children - to spill across our border.

And even in the face of the disaster he created, President Obama refuses to secure our border.

That's why I supported legislation passed by the House of Representatives that would defund programs President Obama expanded that transformed the situation along our southern border from a fiasco to a full on crisis.

So I hope you'll join RANDPAC in electing constitutional conservatives who will fight to secure our border by signing your petition today.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul (R - KY)

P.S. Sign your petition today and help RANDPAC fight to secure our border by election constitutional conservatives this November.
