                               RESOLUTION


 
 Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that officers of 
the Department of Homeland Security should not undermine the efforts of 
citizen groups such as the Minuteman Project to preserve the integrity 
    of the borders of the United States and protect the Nation from 
                               intrusion.

Whereas a primary duty of the Federal Government is to secure the homeland and 
        ensure the safety of citizens and lawful residents of the United States;
Whereas the porous nature of the Nation's borders is a threat to national 
        security and allows for a massive influx of illegal aliens on a daily 
        basis;
Whereas if it is possible for illegal aliens to enter and remain in the United 
        States with impunity, it is also possible for terrorists to enter and 
        remain in the United States while planning, rehearsing, and carrying out 
        terrorist attacks;
Whereas the failure to control and prevent illegal immigration into the United 
        States increases the likelihood that terrorists will succeed in 
        launching catastrophic attacks on United States soil;
Whereas news outlets reported that officials of the Customs and Border 
        Protection division of the Department of Homeland Security alerted 
        Mexican officials as to the location of individuals who participate in 
        the Minuteman Project while such individuals were conducting 
        surveillance on the southern border of the United States;
Whereas some officials of the Department of Homeland Security have stated that 
        the action taken to alert Mexican officials as to the location of such 
        individuals was not an authorized course of action; and
Whereas individuals participating in the Minuteman Project are performing a 
        valuable function by helping the Border Patrol of the Customs and Border 
        Protection division of the Department of Homeland Security conduct 
        surveillance on the southern border of the United States in an effort to 
        serve and protect the Nation by securing the borders: Now, therefore be 
        it
    Resolved,  That it is the sense of the House of Representatives 
that officers of the Department of Homeland Security--
            (1) should not undermine the efforts of citizen groups such 
        as the Minuteman Project to preserve the integrity of the 
        borders of the United States and protect the Nation from 
        intrusion; and
            (2) should not contact Mexican officials about the location 
        of individuals who participate in such citizen groups while 
        such individuals are conducting surveillance on the southern 
        border of the United States.
                                 <all>
