To Saxby Chambliss, Johnny Isakson, Doug Collins and all members of our legislative branch of government: I thought you all were elected to represent us peons and to look after our interests. Is not the legislative branch along with the president and Supreme Court (equally) the top authorities in this great nation? Have I got those facts wrong?

If I am correct, will you please explain how an agency that our leaders formed can deny any member of our top lawmakers the right to inspect what they are doing? I am talking about the Border Patrol denying entrance to a United States legislator to these internment camps for these illegal children, going so far as to ban cameras, recording devices and not being able to interview anyone.

Are you kidding me? You are their bosses! There is no law that prohibits a legislator from doing these tasks, only rules made up by an agency that you created.

You, and no one else, are letting our country fall to where we are beginning to sound like Germany or Russia before the people became slaves. Somebody in the legislature needs to go there and push your way in. What are they going to do? Arrest you? On what charge? Looking out for the interest of the people?

Suck it in and do your job. The people out here want to know what is being hidden. We are the ones that will eventually pay for it. If you guys would have closed the border years ago like you voted to do, we would be home safe now.
