FrontPage Magazine just posted my article:
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.
This is one of the most disingenuous arguments imaginable but as the case with most slogans, the words don’t need to make sense- they only need to repeated as often as possible. Think of how many people got sick and died because they believed the slogan, “Winston tastes good as a cigarette should!” While most English teachers back then, complained that the grammar was incorrect, few teachers noted that the message itself was far worse!
Recently Congressman Denham stated proposed the ENLIST Act to enable illegal aliens to join our armed forces and thus become eligible for a pathway to United States citizenship. Never mind that we have a huge problem with gang members joining our military to learn how to handle high-powered weapons. Never mind that we should be concerned about terrorists potentially joining our military to gain access to our “playbook” and our bases.
All of these statements by politicians and actions and lack of action by the administration failing to enforce laws that are on the books and creating policies that have the impact of laws without laws being legislated, such as the DREAM Act.
The message is clear- in the United States today, violations of law will not only not be punished but rewarded!
If you find the article I wrote to be helpful- please forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and ask them, in turn, to do the same. I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
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,
On July 2, 2013 the Washington Times published my Op-Ed:
Who will find the answers while there’s still time to prevent a disaster?
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.
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!
