KRIS EGGLE NEWSLETTER

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONCERNS AND YOUR SUPPORT. YOU HAVE EACH HELPED US GREATLY DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

With this first edition, we recognize the feelings you have expressed and now ask your help-let us start with a letter-writing/e-mail/phone/fax campaign.

Kris' death can/should become a "call to action" for Congress to immediately take steps in improving our border with Mexico to stop the uncontrolled flow of drugs and illegal aliens. Controls must begin NOW-before other young men or women are killed in this out-of-control BORDER WAR! We choose to use the term "WAR" because that is what it is!! KRIS WAS THE FIRST FATALITY IN THAT WAR! Let us pray he is the last.

Also, we must examine the big picture of our Homeland Security and Counter-Terrorism. The U.S./Mexican border, which is only barbed wire, and much of that knocked down and driven over, is a great part of that concern. Kris told experiences of having apprehended Chinese, Russian, and other ethnic groups mixed into the flow of Mexican UDA's(undocumented aliens). Therefore, terrorists could also easily infiltrate.

As we have tightened security at airports, terrorists are not dumb. They will/can go to our weakest security area-OUR MEXICAN BORDER. We must change policies to have more Law Enforcement staff, better radio communications, and build that vehicle barrier to curtail this constant flow of drugs, illegals, and who knows what else.

You can help by communicating to your Representatives, Senators, the National Park Service, Department of the Interior Secretary, and any other names on the list. Peter Hoekstra and Tom Tancredo are working diligently on this issue and want results. Urge those you contact to take action before it is too late. You have our permission and encouragement to reference Kris' death as your alarm/challenge to them to investigate and take action!

Again, thank you for your support. Let us now make Kris' sacrifice meaningful.

Very Sincerely,

The Family of Kris Eggle, murdered L.E. Ranger
