American GI Forum letter supporting Cong. Joaquin Castro, 2-21

Congressman Joaquin Castro 
& Larry Romo American GI Forum 
National Commander

Here is the American GI Forum Letter of Support on Congressman 
Joaquin  Castro's Joint Resolution to stop diverting allocated funds for President's Emergency Declaration.

Dear Senators and Congressmen, Congresswomen, February 19, 2019

The American GI Forum fully supports a Joint Congressional Resolution that stops the President’s Emergency Declaration to redirect congressional approved funds to build any part of the border wall.
While it may or may not be unconstitutional, we agree that it appears illegal under the National Securities Act and illegal under the Antideficiency Act. If Congress does approve the Joint Resolution and the President overrides with a successful veto then the matter must be addressed by our federal courts and should be found either unconstitutional or illegal.

The American GI Forum supports our Constitution and the separation of powers between our legislative, judicial and executive branches. It is essential that one branch does not take power away from another branch and we maintain check and balances.

The American GI Forum supports bi-partisan dialogue for comprehensive immigration reform legislation. We ask that Congress for the greater good of our Country get together and find solutions and produce legislation on the DACA issue, Deported Veterans issue, Temporary Protected Status, Common Sense Border Security as suggested by the United and Securing American Act (USA Act) of 2018. The USA Act had bi-partisan support so it is possible to find immigration solutions that will get majority bi-partisan support.

May God Bless you, the American GI Forum and the United States of America.

Lawrence G. Romo
American GI Forum National Commander
Lieutenant Colonel, USAFR, Retired
Former US Selective Service System Director, Retired
