Senator John Cornyn introduced an amendment which would spend up to $360 million of unspent US stimulus money to pay for more border fence surveillance and monitoring technologies. As recently as this week, SBINet and ISIS program border surveillance technologies were reported to have failed in providing proficient border security.

The prospect of spending bailout stimulus funding on incompetent border security surveillance is a slap in the face to families and future generations expected to pay down the tab for these excesses.

Please tell Senator Cornyn not to spend stimulus funding on machines and programs which do not work to secure our borders. Here is a sample of what you could write:

Dear Senator Cornyn,
I recognize the combined constituent pressures from the national security industries in Texas, abroad and on the border.
The people who opposed the bailout do not want you to spend any of their money on technology and infrastructure which failed to competently protect our border. Senator Joe Lieberman recently declared SBINet and ISIS a "failure". Please do not use stimulus funding to pay for incompetent border security surveillance projects in the amount of (up to) $360 million US dollars.
The Amendment to Supplemental Appropriations Act (HR 4899) may have support for "boots on the ground" from President Obama, but our nation cannot sustain needless and expensive surveillance costs when it is clearly time to cut wasteful pork projects from our national budget.
Please only ask for what America absolutely needs. Do not put forward any more funding towards a failed fencing project which keeps no one safe from danger.
Regards,
[YOUR CONSTITUENT]
