The day after Election Day President Obama conducted a news conference to discuss the results of the election that handed over control of the United States Senate to the Republican Party and increased the size of the already Republican majority in the House of Representatives.  Additionally, more states elected Republican governors.
Prior to the elections Obama properly stated that while his name was on none of the ballots that his policies would have an impact on the elections.  He was correct in that assessment.  In fact, Republicans should be chastened by the fact that many of those votes cast by American voters were not so much cast for the Republicans as against the Democrats.  
Yet Obama appeared to not have been chastened by the election result but appears to have become emboldened to “double down” saying that if Congress did not act to come up with immigration legislation to create “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” that he would go it alone blatantly
ignoring that one of the key issues that is behind the dissatisfaction of many American voters is the way that he (Obama) has sidestepped the legal legislative process mandated by the Constitution of the United States and used his pen and his phone to create policies to provide hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens with lawful status.  While a succession of administrations have failed abysmally to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws, the current administration has been the absolute worst in making certain that our nation’s immigration laws are enforced to protect national security, public safety and public health, and protect the jobs of American workers. 
It is more than simply foolish to not secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws especially in this particularly challenging and perilous era.  Certainly failures to prioritize these issues is nothing short of a betrayal of America and Americans.  This is not what is expected of intelligent leaders. However, the term intelligence also describes the gathering of information to enable law enforcement and intelligence agencies to act preemptively to prevent terror attacks and take other measures to insure the safety and well-being of America and Americans.  Informants are often the key to the gathering of such intelligence.  
As an INS Special Agent I had first hand, day to day experience in using my authorities to develop cooperating witnesses and confidential informants- not just to enforce our immigration laws but in conjunction with fellow law enforcement personnel at the FBI, DEA, ATF and other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.  Indeed, during my assignment as the first INS representative to the Unified Intelligence Division at the Drug Enforcement Administration and my subsequent assignment to the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, one of my key responsibilities was to help identify and recruit informants and cooperating witnesses for the other law enforcement agencies I worked with.  It was also found that many of the criminals we investigated, arrested and prosecuted for committing drug-related crimes were found to have been aliens who had violated our immigration laws.  We used those violations of immigration laws to great advantage to pursue successful investigations to dismantle major narcotics trafficking organizations in New York.
What may not be universally known is that immigration agents are also assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).  Often suspected terrorists are prosecuted for committing visa fraud, immigration fraud or for violating other laws under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
By the words and deeds of this administration and the words and promises of many Republicans who have been quick to say that since we cannot deport all of the millions of illegal aliens already present in the United States, the only “solution” is to provide them with lawful status.
It is staggering to hear our “leaders” hoist the flag of surrender declaring that we cannot enforce our laws against those aliens who have evaded the inspections process designed to prevent the entry of terrorists, criminals and other aliens whose presence in the United States wold be problematic for America and Americans.
John Boehner, the Speaker of the House warned Obama that he was playing with fire and might get burned, but has also said that he wants to work with the administration to address illegal immigration and come up with legislation.  What is disconcerting is that he has repeatedly called for providing lawful status for unknown millions of illegal aliens even though there is no way to interview these millions of illegal aliens.  There would be no way to conduct field investigations to determine the true identities, backgrounds or even dates of entry for millions of aliens who snuck into the United States.
On October 30, 2014 FrontPage Magazine published my article:
One of the issues I raised in that article was how Chuck Schumer, one of the “Eight Gangsters” who concocted “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” legislation (S 744) had recently stood before the television cameras and forest of radio and TV microphones and railed about how there had been a series of trespassers who took down the American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge, hung a Palestinian flag on the Manhattan bridge and carried out a base jump from the World Trade Center.  Schumer declared that the way to deter trespassing is to increase the maximum punishment for the crime of trespassing from the current one year in prison to a maximum of five years in prison.  He said that if trespassers were arrested they should face the maximum penalty because trespassing poses a threat to public safety.
As I noted in my article, Schumer, and former Mayor Bloomberg who also demanded that trespassers who trespassed into public housing projects be prosecuted to deter that crime, both demonstrated an acute lack of mouth/ear coordination.  Their own ears cannot hear what comes out of their won mouths!  They are not stupid but apparently expect Americans to be stupid!  The solution to aliens who trespass on the United States is to deter that form of trespassing the very same way- arrest those who violate the laws and punish them!  This is not hard to figure out- the issue is that these “leaders” don’t want to stop illegal immigration but make remove the distinction between legal immigration as compared with legal immigration!
As Bob Barker, the former host of “The Price is Right” used to say, “Come on down!”

I addressed the many components of the dysfunctional immigration system that go well beyond the obvious failure of the administration to secure the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico in my article for the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s FrontPage Magazine:

The importance of our borders and our immigration laws cannot be overemphasized.  In the war on terror and transnational gangs, they are our first line of defense and our last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.  They are equally important to American workers who are facing unfair competition from foreign workers, aided and abetted by the administration and advocates for “Sanctuary Cities” and Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  

The starting point for any conversation or legislation concerning immigration must be the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission which determined that a lack of border security, including the visa process. and fraud in the immigration benefits program enabled terrorists to enter and embed themselves in the United States, as they went about their deadly preparations.


In his historic speech before the 3rd Army on May 31, 1944, General George S. Patton said, on the strategy of holding a position:

We’re not holding anything, we’ll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”

Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform violates all of the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission but no one is willing to even consider how the lack of real border security and the lack of real integrity to the various components of the immigration system imperil national security and public safety.

Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today!  Simply stated, the immigration laws were enacted to save lives and protect the jobs of American workers.

It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American!”

Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within.  The failures of the DHS to live up to its half of the equation are undermining the efforts, valor and incredible sacrifices of Americas men and women who serve in our military!

If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation! 

All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!

We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.

This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!

You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!

Democracy is not a spectator sport!

Lead, follow or get out of the way!
