9/11 Families For a Secure America

What We Believe

Families who lost loved ones on September 11th know that the federal government failed to live up to its most basic obligation to its citizens - to protect them from foreign attack. There were failures in the areas of foreign and domestic intelligence. There was a failure to respond with sufficient force to the string of terrorist acts perpetrated against American citizens throughout the 1990's. And we know our government failed to maintain control of our borders. The failure to keep out unauthorized aliens led directly to the 9/11 attacks and the deaths of our loved ones.

The problem is massive (there are an estimated 10 million illegal aliens in the US) and has grown over a span of 30 years. A succession of Presidents and Congresses have permitted and even encouraged this situation. Congress, eager to evade accountability, has blamed the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), and the new agency that replaces it, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). However, the policies, regulations, funding and staffing of the INS/ICE have always been and still remain subject to the absolute control of the President and the Congress.

Members of both the Democrat and Republican parties who oppose secure borders have made their own political survival more important than our national security by catering to special interests. But independent polls show that approximately 75% of Americans want strict enforcement of border security measures immediately.
