Today, July 7th, FrontPage Magazine posted my article:
This is followup article to my two previous articles for FrontPage Magazine about the mayhem on America’s Southwest Border that is supposed to separate the Untied States from Mexico.

The stories continue to mount about how a human tidal wave of illegal aliens are arriving daily from Central America encouraged by the clear message being sent by the president and members of both political parties, that since we “cannot deport 11 million illegal aliens” we may as well place them on a path to lawful status or maybe even United States citizenship.
We are constantly told that we need to be compassionate to illegal aliens. Indeed, many of these folks are in a desperate situation- however, today it is estimated that one in five American children live below the poverty line. Should not compassion apply to American workers and their struggling families?
Furthermore the preface of the The 9/11 Commission Staff Report on Terrorist Travel begins with this paragraph:
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 one.
Please forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can, I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
On June 25, 2014 the House Judiciary Committee conducted a hearing into this ongoing onslaught of illegal aliens along America’s southwest border and gave the title of that hearing a name that was quite similar to the title of my earlier article:
Hearing: An Administration Made Disaster: The South Texas Border Surge of Unaccompanied Alien Minors
The members of Congress were largely divided along party lines with the Democrats playing defense and the Republicans playing offense.
In my judgement, the administration has a lot to answer for, but I cannot give the Republicans a free pass, either. Every time a member of Congress or some other government official makes the statement that we cannot deport 11 million illegal aliens, desperate aspiring illegal aliens from around the world see encouragement that if they can only get to the United States it will be easy to hide in plain sight and ultimately acquire lawful status.
International terrorists and transnational criminals pay very careful attention to those statements as well and find, in them, the opportunity to enter the United States for their pernicious purposes.
Meanwhile the beleaguered Border Patrol agents are getting hammered every day working for a critical federal agency that is overwhelmed on a daily basis and is getting conflicting signals from the administration but with the loudest message being, don’t enforce the laws! Those agents and the agents of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) understand just how critically important our borders and our immigration laws are to national security, public safety and a host of other issues, yet they are stymied every day they go on duty.
The disaster on the border is impacting America and Americans from coast to coast and border to border as drugs, criminal aliens and potentially terrorists enter the United States each and every day.
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,
