Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and then ask that those to whom you send this do the very same- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
This morning, Thursday, December 4th at 10:00 AM, Eastern Standard Time, I was a guest on JD Hayworth’s excellent news program, “America’s Forum” that is broadcast on NewsMax-TV.
My Segment was posted on YouTube with the title:

With JD Hayworth
We focused on the threat posed by terrorists being able to enter the United States and the lack of action on the part of the administration to act to secure our borders and, in the case of two Turkish citizens who admitted to being affiliated with a terrorist organization were released by an Immigration Judge whereupon they made their way to Canada where they have filed applications for political asylum in Canada.
During our conversation JD also raised the issue of President Obama’s plan to invoke “Prosecutorial Discretion” to provide an estimated 5 million illegal aliens with temporary lawful status and the identity documents, Social Security cards and other such documentation that goes with this granting of lawful status. and how the Republican “leadership” is failing to aggressively address this threat to national security and a host of other issues that have a clear nexus to failures of the immigration system.
I am associated with several terrific organizations for whom I write commentaries and extensive articles and participate in public events. One of those organizations is the David Horowitz Freedom Center. I am a columnist for their excellent publication, FrontPage Magazine and my articles
focus primarily on immigration-related issues.
I have for a number of years, provided my perspectives on the immigration crisis for Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) and My articles
appear on the CAPS website as well.
The entire focus of politicians from both sides of the political aisle is unfathomable and I told JD about a recent article I wrote for FrontPage Magazine that is produced by the David Horowitz Freedom Center. The title of my article was Border Security and the Immigration Colander
I noted during my conversation with JD this morning, that I was invited to participate in the Restoration Weekend that the David Horowitz Freedom Center sponsored at The Breakers Hotel located in West Palm Beach, Florida mid-November this year. I was greatly honored to participate in a panel discussion on immigration with Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressmen Louie Gohmert and John Fleming during this event.
Senator Sessions and Representative Gohmert, along with Representative Steve King were featured in the Tea Party Patriots excellent documentary, “The Border States of America.” The subtitle of this film makes the importance and relevance of the immigration crisis clear to all Americans: “Every State is Now a Border State.” I am also proud to have been interviewed with for this important film.
JD questioned me about Senator Sessions and his position on immigration. I noted that back in June 2007 when I wrote an article for the Washington Times, Immigration bill a ‘No Go’
in which I gave Comprehensive Immigration Reform a new and more descriptive title. I referred to it as the “Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act because that legislation would require providing lawful status and official identity documents to unknown millions of illegal aliens who trespassed on the United States and evaded the inspections process required at ports of entry.
Senator Sessions liked my article and proposed change in title of that ill-conceived legislation that he quoted me, with attribution, from the floor of the United States Senate on three separate occasions including the day before the bill came up for a vote and was defeated.
The editor of FrontPage Magazine is Jamie Glazov. He interviewed me in the lobby of “The Breakers” the awesome hotel where the Restoration Weekend was held. I have attached information, including a link to my interview below:
Former Senior Special Agent of the INS unveils a hazardous threat facing our nation:

Many police departments around the United States have adopted the motto, “To Serve and Protect,” to describe their primary missions. Police departments are almost always underfunded, suffer severe shortages in staffing and often face overwhelming challenges. The phrase, “Thin Blue Line,” sums up just how tenuous their ability is to overcome myriad challenges and protect the people who are present…
Finally, in discussing the true significance of immigration I noted that constituents must ask any politician who favors any sort of massive program to provide illegal aliens with lawful status and official identity documents how such an action would square with the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.
As I have often noted, the starting point for any discussion about immigration must be the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.
The 9/11 Commission Report was released more than a decade ago and has been utterly ignored when immigration-related issues are discussed.
Indeed, there are precious few members of Congress in either the House of Representatives or the United States Senate from either party willing to even mention the fact that there was a 9/11 Commission- when the topic of immigration is raised!
Here are a couple of important quotes to put things in proper perspective:
It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United
States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were
efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border
security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers
demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the
United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security
policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made
The 9/11 Commission Staff Report on Terrorist travel went on to detail numerous examples of instances where terrorists not only made use of visa and immigration benefit fraud to enter the United States but to also embed themselves in the United States. Page 47 of this report noted:
Once terrorists had entered the United States, their next challenge was to find a way to remain here. Their primary method was immigration fraud. For example, Yousef and Ajaj concocted bogus political asylum stories when they arrived in the United States. Mahmoud Abouhalima, involved in both the World Trade Center and landmarks plots, received temporary residence under the Seasonal Agricultural Workers (SAW) program, after falsely claiming that he picked beans in Florida.
This paragraph is found on page 98 under the title “Immigration Benefits:”
“Terrorists in the 1990s, as well as the September 11 hijackers, needed to find a way to stay in or embed themselves in the United States if their operational plans were to come to fruition. As already discussed, this could be accomplished legally by marrying an American citizen, achieving temporary worker status, or applying for asylum after entering. In many cases, the act of filing for an immigration benefit sufficed to permit the alien to remain in the country until the petition was adjudicated. Terrorists were free to conduct surveillance, coordinate operations, obtain and receive funding, go to school and learn English, make contacts in the United States, acquire necessary materials, and execute an attack.”
The catastrophic impact Obama’s immigration power grab will have on America.

On June 13, 2013 I was interviewed by Neil Cavuto on the topic:
The interview runs about 4 minutes and is worth watching.
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. 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,
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.
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!
