Congress needs to secure our borders

The real story underlying the U.S. Supreme Court's decision today in regards to the Arizona immigration law is the failure of Congress to secure our borders. Congress' inability to protect our borders and pass a comprehensive immigration reform plan left Arizona to do what it felt necessary to protect its people.

The ultimate response out of Washington was to sue the very state trying to protect itself, while the leaders in Washington slept at the wheel. Today's decision shines a bright spotlight on Congress' ineffectiveness, and unfortunately our congressman is not new to that spotlight. Dave Loebsack, President Obama's rubber stamp in Congress, is Iowa's most ineffective member.

The people of Arizona, Iowa, and the rest of the United States deserve a more effective Congress.
