Earlier today, Thursday, May 2nd, I was interviewed by Megyn Kelly of Fox News.
I have provided you below, with a link to a video of the interview and a brief report posted on the Fox News Insider website this afternoon.
Michael Cutler, former special agent for INS, joined Megyn Kelly this afternoon to discuss what he believes is a failing system regarding immigrants and the student visa program. He believes the case of Azamat Tazhayakov, arrested for allegedly helping Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by disposing of possible evidence, illustrates this point.
Cutler said there is a database that is supposed to be updated so that in this case, officials at the airport could have seen that Tazhayakov’s visa had been revoked.
“The system failed. The system keeps on failing,” said Cutler, pointing out that so much of the immigration debate is focused on the Mexican border and people have no idea how many other aspects of the program are not working.
“We have a bunch of holes in the bottom of our boat. They’re not plugging any of them and this one involves national security because we know that terrorists in the past have gamed the visa process.”
Check out the full interview to hear all of Cutler’s insights on the immigration system.
As might be expected, our discussion focused on the latest developments concerning the terror bombing in Boston. Megyn provided me with ample opportunities to connect the dots to show how the immigration system consists of far more than the Mexican border which, as I noted on air, continues to leak like a sieve.
It was wonderful to be have been afforded the opportunity to provide my perspectives and concerns about the utter lack of integrity to the immigration system that has been failing for many years going back at least to the terrorist attacks of 1993, both at the CIA and the World Trade Center bombing and certainly made the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 possible.
The lack of integrity to the process by which visas are issued to aliens and the way that the immigration laws are not being enforced from within the interior of the United States all contributed, once again to a terrorist attack, this time the target was the Boston Marathon and people died while others were so savagely injured that their lives and the lives of those close to them have been irrevocably altered.
As I noted during my interview, the immigration laws that the administration refuses to enforce were enacted to achieve two primary goals- protect American lives and the jobs of American workers.
I ended my conversation with Megyn by repeating a phrase I often heard from my parents as I was growing up. “Safety first!”
Long before Schumer and his 7 Gangster friend foist “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” on America and Americans, the national security and public safety implications of this ill-conceived legislation must be considered first!
I hope to be able to join Megyn on her show again soon!

Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today!
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!The immigration laws are supposed to achieve two primary goals- to protect American lives and protect Americans’ jobs.

Our nation is greatly benefited by the rich diversity of our people which is why I could never imagine living anywhere except New York City, arguably the most diverse city in our nation if not, in fact, the world. However, my idea of diversity most certainly does not include members of MS-13, the Mexican drug cartels or members of other transnational gangs or members of al-Qaeda or other terrorist organizations!
It is also vital that American workers never be made to compete with foreign workers for their jobs! (This requirement is a component of the Immigration Laws that are not being enforced today!)
If our government’s failures to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws that are intended to protect our nation and our citizens 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!
I also ask that you pass this e-mail along to your friends and neighbors- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
We the People must 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!
