Even as countless illegal immigrants continue to cross America’s southern border, the federal government is scrambling to find the resources necessary for those already being held by U.S. authorities. As an example, the Department of Homeland Security recently submitted a request for underwear – up to size XXXXXXL – to clothe thousands of detained individuals.
One innovative solution put forth by the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC would not only help meet that staggering need, but might drive home a larger point to Washington politicians unwilling to assist in securing America’s border. As ALIPAC President William Gheen wrote:
“Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and DC politicians a message by mailing them our used underwear, and some of our pairs are in really bad shape due to the bad economy and all of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans.”
The group included the White House and House Speaker John Boehner’s office as suggested destinations for the donations.
