Today, October 21, 2014, FrontPage Magazine has posted my latest article that focuses on an extremely important documentary I am very proud to have been interviewed for. This documentary was produced by the Tea Party Patriots. The force behind this film is a good friend, Mark Hager who is a history professor from North Carolina. He led his team to the U.S./Mexican border to film the truth about what passes for security along our southern border and conduct on camera interviews with sheriffs, Border Patrol agents, ranchers and members of Congress including Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressmen Steve King and Louie Gohmert.
Our borders are our first line, and last line of defense against terrorists, criminals, dangerous communicable diseases and contraband including heroin, cocaine and potentially, weapons of mass destruction.
Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as possible and ask that they, in turn, do the same- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!” We should encourage everyone we know to watch this important documentary.
This film runs under one hour and can be viewed online for my favorite price- FREE! However, it would be greatly appreciated if those who watch this documentary make contributions to help defray the six figure costs that made this labor of love possible.
This hard-hitting, no-holds-barred documentary is narrated by actor Nick Searcy and reports on the truth where the security of America’s southern border is concerned.
Every State is Now a Border State
Exposing the human toll of the border crisis.

Discovering the truth is a daunting and every increasingly elusive goal in many aspects of our country today.
Few of us witness news worthy events and depend on news reports to inform us. There is question that asks, “If the tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it fall, does it make a sound?” An important variation to that question is, “If a tree false in the forest does anyone know it fell if no news agencies report on the falling of that tree?”
The Founding Fathers of the United States certainly understood the importance of journalism in laying out the First Amendment of our Constitution.
The immigration crisis is arguably the most serious crisis currently conforming the United States today. This crisis is the direct result of the failure of the component agencies of the DHS to effectively carry out their respective missions. The significance of these failures undermine national security, public safety, public health and the very futures of our citizens and our nation. However, most news reports concerning immigration fail to honestly and accurately portray this vital issue as being of huge significance. Supposed journalists are rarely to even use honest language to describe foreign nationals who are present in the United States. The term “Alien” has been eschewed by most news organizations, treating that honest term as though it was the equivalent of the “N word.” In point of fact, the term alien is defined as simply being, “Any person, not a citizen or national of the United States.” That definition is to be found in the Immigration and Nationality Act, (INA) the all-encompassing body of immigration laws that are supposed to be enforced and administered by the appropriate federal agencies. How on earth is it insulting to tell someone who is a citizen of another country that he (she) is not a citizen or national of the United States?
Journalists are quick to describe those of us who believe that our border be made secured and our immigration laws enforced as being “Anti-Immigrant.” They also describe those who are opposed to border security and immigration law enforcement as being “Pro-Immigrant.”
How can supporting the enforcement of our immigration laws that not only tell us who to keep out and who to kick out for posing a threat to the well-being of America and Americans but also provide for the lawful admission of more than one million lawful immigrants each year as being “Anti-Immigrant?”
The mission of border security is to prevent aliens from circumventing the lawful inspections process that is supposed to prevent the entry of aliens deemed excludible under Title 8, United States Code, Section 1182, and include aliens who are infected with dangerous communicable diseases, suffer extreme mental illness and are prone to extreme violence or are sex offenders or are convicted felons, human rights violators, spies, terrorists, likely to become public charges or are likely to work, thereby competing unfairly with American workers and either displace American workers or drive down the wages of Americans who are employed in the United States.
Given the true importance of the immigration crisis and the lack of objective reporting by all too many news agencies, Mark Hager and his colleagues have rendered Americans and invaluable service in providing the truth about the abject failure of our government to carry out one of its most fundamental missions, to provide safety and security for our nation and our citizens.
Of course there is far more to the immigration system than simply securing our borders. In reality, the immigration system is comprised of many components as I noted in my July 7, 2014 article for FrontPage Magazine:
