WASTE: White House giving free cell phones to illegal immigrants

Published in Blog on April 07, 2022 by Article V Patriot

The White House is defending its decision to hand out free cell phones to illegal immigrants who attempt to enter the southern U.S. border. 

Press Secretary Jenn Psaki told reporters this week that the policy is an attempt to track the movements of these would-be immigrants.

"It's all part of our effort, as individuals come into the United States and individuals who are entering who will proceed to immigration proceedings, to monitor and track where they are," she said.

Of course, anyone with two brain cells to rub together can see the flaw in this perfect plan: immigrants who don't want to be tracked can simply toss the phone in a trash can. 

Instead of using an ankle monitor, as we do with other criminals, this White House is opting to hand out taxpayer-funded cell phones to people who knowingly and flagrantly break immigration law. Those who don't want to be tracked will toss the phone, and those who plan to attend their immigration hearings anyway (and therefore don't need to be tracked) will get a free phone.

Either way, it's a massive waste of money for the American people.

We need a way to force the federal government to stop wasting our money, and we've found one in Article V of the Constitution.

Article V allows the states to call a Convention of States for the purpose of proposing constitutional amendments. These amendments can, among other things, force Congress to balance the budget every year without raising taxes. Such an amendment would compel Congress to cut all the wasteful and unnecessary government spending, which is the first step to reducing the national debt and getting our economy back on the right track. 

With a balanced budget amendment in place, do you think Congress will continue approving free cell phones for illegal immigrants? We don't think so. That's why we're working to call the first-ever Article V Convention of States.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
