R-CALF: Restore our border

From the Ranchers-Cattlemen Action Legal Fund, United Stockgrowers of America:

R-CALF USA fully supports an 18-point plan titled “Restore Our Border (ROB) Security Plan” created by the Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association (ACGA) and Southern Arizona Ranchers that requests the “immediate attention and implementation by Local, State and Federal Authorities charged with securing our border with Mexico and the security of the citizens of Arizona.”

According to ACGA, this report is the culmination of over 18 months of meetings, research, fact-finding and interviews regarding potential solutions to the current border crisis, and the basis for the report is to provide concrete actions which have been vetted as viable and needed along with measureable results regarding the implementation of these needed actions directly adjacent to the U.S./Mexico border.

The report states:

* We call for the politicians and government officials to take the necessary steps to enforce our laws and protect our fellow Arizonans.
* We must put the necessary manpower directly on the border to stop the foreign invasion.
* We must give law enforcement and the judicial system the ability to enforce every immigration law.

“R-CALF USA fully supports the ‘Restore Our Border Plan’,” said R-CALF USA CEO Bill Bullard. “We implore both Congress and the Administration to act quickly and decisively to implement the ROB plan to protect U.S. ranch families along our southern border whose lives and property are continually threatened by drug trafficking and other unlawful border-crossing activities.

“Additionally, we encourage both our members and U.S. beef consumers to offer their endorsement of this plan that recognizes it is the responsibility of our government to protect U.S. ranch families whose lives and property are threatened by a foreign source,” he added.

Persons who wish to offer their support for this plan can give their endorsement at
