My article for The Daily Caller: "Syrian Refugees Cannot Be Vetted: However, Neither Can Aliens Who Cross Our Borders"
Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and then ask that those to whom you send this, to forward it along to everyone they can- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
The two recent terror attacks carried out by ISIS have made it clear that national security must be the number one priority of our leaders- especially our president.
I urge you to get involved and demand our elected representatives actually represent us- We the People! The information contained in my article is being provided to educate as many of our fellow Americans as possible so that they can ask the right questions and make the appropriate demands on our political leaders and representatives, especially those who seek the presidency or are running for election or re-election to other political positions.
The 9/11 Commission made it clear that the myriad failures of the immigration system enabled terrorists- and not just those 19 hijackers who so savagely attacked our nation on September 11, 2001, but other terrorists as well, to enter the United States and embed themselves.
Our immigration laws and our borders must be understood to be the first line of defense and last line of defense for our nation and our citizens.
The Administration continues to plan to admit tens of thousands of aliens claiming to be refugees into the United States. However it is clear that these aliens cannot be vetted to determine their true identities and whether or not they are being truthful in their applications for refugee status or if they are, in fact the very same terrorists who seek to exploit the very conditions they themselves created in Syria.
Many governors have now stated that they will not accept Syrian Refugees in their states, out of concerns about the screening process. Members of Congress from both political parties have called for a suspension of the administration plans to resettle Syrian Refugees in the United States.
Yet, incredibly, many of these very same politicians who seemingly “get it” continue to support providing millions of illegal aliens with lawful status in the United States even though there would be absolutely no way to interview these millions- indeed, likely tens of millions of foreign nationals who entered the United States surreptitiously, evading the vetting process that is the mission of the CBP Inspectors at our ports of entry around the United States.
The inability or, perhaps, unwillingness of these politicians to understand that aliens who cannot be effectively vetted poses a serious threat to national security and public safety no matter where these aliens may profess to come from.
These concerns provided the predication for my article today-
On November 23, 2015 the Daily Caller published my article:
The interview ran about 4 minutes and is worth watching.
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!
