On Friday, April 1, 2016 I was a guest on The Steve Malzberg show that is broadcast on Newsmax-TV to discuss how we prevent terror attacks by radical Islamists such as we have recently witnessed in Paris and Brussels.
Steve’s excellent program is broadcast on Direct TV- Channel 349, on Dish TV on Channel 223 and on Channel 115 on Verizon.
Michael Cutler: Let’s Enforce Our Immigration Laws and ‘Create Deterrence’
The title for the interview, as posted by Newsmax-TV, summed up the issue I have been hammering ever since the attacks of 9/11, we need to not only focus on securing the U.S./Mexican border but focus on the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States.
The points I made during my interview largely paralleled the points I made in my most recent article for FrontPage Magazine that was published on March 31, 2016: “Terrorism, Enclaves and Sanctuary Cities: How sanctuary cities facilitate the growth of terror enclaves in America.”
My article for Winter 2016 edition of The Social Contract focused on how Sanctuary Cities undermine national security and public safety: Sanctuary Cities Endanger – National Security and Public Safety
Additionally, in commenting on the true magnitude of the immigration crisis I also referenced my most recent commentary for the CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) website “The Immigration ‘Clown Car’ – While Hardly a Laughing Matter, the Joke Is on Us.”
The point is that while we have been told that there are 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States, that figure has not changed in a decade, notwithstanding that a recent official government report has noted that last year approximately 500,000 aliens who were lawfully admitted into the United States as nonimmigrants remained in the United States beyond their authorized period of admission and this problem is hardly new. Indeed, it is estimated that nearly half of all illegal aliens are aliens who did not run our borders- neither northern or the southern border, but violated the terms of their admission into the United States. Additionally we have witnessed a succession of surges of unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and many other aliens who were apprehended by the Border Patrol and then failed to show up for hearings.
For me the image that immediately came to mind was the circus clown car in which an impossible number of clowns emerge from a compact car and disappear through a screen as ever more clowns continue to exit the vehicle. Here we have a huge number of illegal aliens entering the United States each year- yet the number of such aliens, as reported by the administration never increases. This not only defies logic, but shows the utter contempt that the administration has for the citizens of the United States. This also illustrates how lies and propaganda are complacently spewed by the administration- expecting that the citizens of our nation will be dumb enough to accept these bald-faced lies.
Both political parties have gotten us into the dire circumstances in which we find ourselves in their perilous era. Undoubtedly the current administration has inflicted the greatest harm by its abject refusal to prevent the entry of illegal aliens and effectively address illegal aliens once they make it to the United States.
As I noted when I testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee three years ago, the policies of the administration have, in effect, fired the starter’s pistol for aspiring illegal aliens from around the world. For these folks the finish line is the border of the United States. While Americans may debate the role that government should play in lives- no one can argue that national security and public safety must be at the top of the list of vital governmental missions and priorities.
Our immigration laws, as noted by the 9/11 Commission, are essential to national security. I wrote an extensive article about the 9/11 Commission and its findings for The Social Contract’s Summer 2015 edition:
On July 5, 2015 FrontPage Magazine published my article:
On June 13, 2013 I was interviewed by Neil Cavuto at Fox News on the topic:
The interview ran about 4 minutes and is worth watching.
On April 4, 2014, CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary that asks the questions all Americans need to ask their political “representatives.” My commentary is aptly titled: “How? Why?”
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.
The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation. That commission 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.
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. In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.
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.
American Lives Matter!
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!
