Letter to the Editor


Dear Editor,

Passing The Border Bill is a “No-Lose“

The Senate is expected to pass a bi-partisan Border Bill that some very prominent Republican Senators (Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, etc.) have said will help the border, Israel, and Ukraine.

But House Speaker Mike Johnson has already declared the deal would be “dead on arrival.”



Why? Because Donald Trump asked. He thinks it will help him defeat President Biden. Senator Mitt

Romney (R-Utah) said he found that “really appalling”.



Why not pass it? What is there to lose? A lot if they don’t pass it. There are 270 days until the election.

Failing to close the border means that 270 x 10,000 (per day) = 2,700,000 more illegals will enter our country before the election. And that’s not counting the “got-aways.”

Failing to fund Ukraine gives Russia 270 days that it can run wild. Are House Republicans willing to betray an ally during war? Desecrate the Reagan Doctrine?

About 240 Palestinians a day (24,000 in 100 days) are dying in Gaza, mostly civilians. That works out to around 100 children, 70 women, and 70 men, every single day. It is not “antisemitic” to seek a peaceful solution.

If Congress fails to support Israel and end this conflict, then 27,000 children, 18,900 women, and 18,900 men will die by election day! Just Palestinians. How many Israelis? How many U.S. now that the war is spreading?

Americans need to have a real Howard Beale moment (movie “Network”). Go to the window, open it, and yell “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!” MUST SEE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFzlm9wQ4MI

Then call/write/email your Representative. If the GOP continues to serve Trump, the Republican

Party may go the way of the Federalists or Whigs (remember the 2018, 2020, and 2022 election losses). https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative
