This model letter is a tool for you to use. Please copy its contents and send to the person(s) who represent you in Congress…in the House of Representatives and in the Senate. The House Foreign Affairs Committee will meet again in September to consider this bill. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD NOW!!!

Thank you Janice B. for your dedication, courage and effort, and caring for the voiceless and oppressed. Many are upset but few actually do something.

I am not a churchy person but I am convinced that someone, somewhere – maybe up above – is watching.

Considering we have family in Belgium that have never met my fiance of 3-years … this would be an outrage!! Preparing my letters for mailing now!!!

Far be it from me to criticize those who have the courage to stand up, show up and speak up.

However – I noticed that in the letter the term *sex offender* is used several times. Not *ex* or *registered* but plain *sex offender*. This is seeping into the comments here, as well.

I have no criminal record but when I was a kid I stole a pack of gum. Who hasn’t. I suppose that makes me a thief. What would possess me to identify myself as such for the rest of my life?

Somewhere I read how someone dealt with this issue – “I am a person / human being burdened with registration under Penal Code 290 for a PAST offense”.

If even the staunchest and most admirable defenders of all rights for all are using this present tense reference, you know what the general publics thoughts are.

Just saying.

Lest we digress,folks …whatever term of art you use to identify those adversely impacted by this bill – WRITE YOUR LETTERS NOW. Thank you.

Free citizens have NOT broken any international law….they have NOT been
afforded due process to restrict their freedom of travel or choice to travel …..
this reminds history when the soviet union
restricted refused east Germans to travel to
west Germany…..Berlin wall ………..this proposal is an offense against history and
an offense against mankind.
