Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and then ask that those to whom you send this, to forward it along to everyone they can- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
I urge you to get involved and demand our elected representatives actually represent us- We the People! The information contained in my article is being provided to educate as many of our fellow Americans as possible so that they can ask the right questions and make the appropriate demands on our political leaders and representatives.
On February 17, 2015 the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s FrontPage Magazine, published my most recent article:
Time for a serious reality check on what really needs to be done to win this battle.

The first step in problem solving is to identify the components of the problem and then devising the best strategies to most effectively deal with the problem. Politicians who are ignoring the immigration component to the threats we face are either supremely ignorant and foolish or are so corrupt that they are willing to compromise national security and the lives of Americans to garner massive campaign contributions and promises of block votes.
While I am not a bible scholar, I am not unlike most people who have learned of the “Wisdom of Solomon” as typified by the story about how two women both claimed to be the mother of a baby. Understanding human nature and maternal instincts, King Solomon found an easy way to use those fundamental human characteristics as an infallible lie detector. He simply offered to cut the baby in two and provide each woman claiming to be that baby’s mother with her “share” of the child he was supposedly willing to slaughter to resolve the conflict.
The much revered king knew damn well that no real mother would allow harm to come to a single strand of hair on her baby’s head, let alone consent to have child’s slaughter.
One “mother” quickly agreed to the outrageous proposal while the other was aghast at that the prospect of having the baby killed to satisfy the conflict. That latter mother said she would rather turn the contested child over to the other woman rather than have harm come to it.
It became readily obvious to all who the real mother was!
Politicians who claim that it is appropriate to provide unknown millions of illegal aliens who evaded the inspections process carried out by the more than 20,000 employees of CBP (Customs and Border Protection) to prevent, in part, the entry of international terrorists, transnational criminals, international fugitives from justice, spies, war criminals and others who would pose a threat to our safety and well being are not unlike that false “mother” of biblical notoriety.
Only a false leader who could not care less about the well being of our nation and our citizens!
Today our nation and our citizens face a list of challenges and threats- nearly every one of which is being exacerbated by long-standing failures of our nation to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws. To be clear, it is not “Anti-Immigrant” to want these two issues to be dealt with effectively. It is not racist to insist on enforcing those laws either- our immigration laws are utterly, completely and totally blind as to race, religion and ethnicity.
In point of fact, the same immigration laws that mandate the categories of aliens to be kept our of our country and the terms under which aliens should be removed from our country have absolutely nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity, also provide for the lawful admission of roughly one million lawful immigrants and the naturalization of hundreds of thousands of new citizens each year.
It is therefore a contradiction in terms and thinking to claim that it is “Anti-Immigrant” to support the effective enforcement and administration of our immigration laws
Finally, this is about making certain that foreign nationals will not become public charges and will not seek or gain employment that will enable them to compete unfairly with American workers thereby displacing Americans similarly employed and/or driving down the wages of such Americans workers.
Let us be clear in our thinking- it is “Pro-Immigrant” to be “Pro-Enforcement!”
The many failures of our immigration system are evident to everyone. The fact that there are unknown millions of illegal aliens present in the United States, the fact that aliens who were granted political asylum, lawful immigrant status and even United States citizenship should raise serious concerns about the vetting process that such aliens undergo. The fact that immigration fraud permeates the immigration benefits program provides clear and unequivocal evidence that the division of USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) is incapable of properly screening applications that they adjudicate, thereby enabling terrorists and criminals to enter the United States and embed themselves in communities across our nation.
Immigration fraud was identified by the 9/11 Commission as being a key method of entry and embedding employed by the majority of terrorists identified and investigated by that commission, including other terrorists who did not participate in the terror attacks of 9/11.
It was clear that while border security is a vital component of national security, that this involves far more than simply supposedly securing the US/Mexican border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico.
Indeed, not one of the 19 terrorists who participated in the attacks of September 11, 2001 ran the US/Mexican Border!
Yet most politicians from both parties keep on insisting that once the US/Mexican border is made secure, it is in our best interests to provide unknown millions of illegal aliens with lawful status and identity documents.
There would be no way of interviewing these millions of aliens in person and no way to conduct field investigations to substantiate the claims that they would make in their applications. Here is what our officials will not be able to confirm:
1. The true names of these aliens
2. The true nationalities of these aliens
3. The possible affiliation that these aliens may have with criminal or terrorist organizations
4. When, where or how they actually entered the United States.
The obvious question- “What could possibly go wrong?”
The second obvious question- ”Why on earth would our leaders sell out America and Americans in so obvious and devastating manner?”
Yet the House Committee on Homeland Security inexplicably proposed legislation that would, over a period of years, achieve “operational control” (whatever that vague term means) over the US/Mexican border while blithely ignoring that nearly half of all illegal aliens did not run that border but were admitted via the inspections process, ran the US/Canadian border or stowed away on ships.
If this is supposed to protect us, I am underwhelmed!
Our immigration system is composed of many moving parts and all must be effectively dealt with. If “a chain is as strong as its weakest link,” the immigration system must be thought of as a chain with extremely weak and even missing links.
