I will be doing a radio “Triple-Header” today, Tuesday, January 29th. All three shows will, as you would likely expect, address the statements made by the President as well as members of Congress that they are determined to enact “Comprehensive Immigration Reform.”
As I like to say- they are at it again!
I have provided you with a bit of background material concerning the issue of the dangerous inherent in Comprehensive Immigration Reform below, but first, here is the rundown on my radio appearances later today.
First, this morning at about 7:05 AM Eastern Standard Time, I will be a guest on a
terrific radio show, “York’s Morning News” that is hosted by an old friend, Gary Sutton. His show is broadcast on radio station
WSBA from York, Pennsylvania.
It is always great being on his show and I am looking forward to joining him!
Next, at about 7:35 AM Eastern Standard Time I will be a guest on the Curtis Sliwa radio show.
I have been on Curtis’ show many times and I always look forward to joining him on his show!
His program is broadcast from the Empire State Building in midtown Manhattan on AM Radio Station 970.
Here is the link for his show:
Finally, at about 4:25 PM Eastern Standard Time I will be a guest on the Marc Bernier Radio Show that is broadcast from Daytona Beach, Florida on Radio Station WNDB-1150. I have been on his show many times over the years and it is always enjoyable to join him on his terrific show.
Here is a link to his program:
I hope you will be able to listen to all three shows!
Now for some perspectives on Comprehensive Immigration Reform:
Comprehensive Immigration Reform is absolutely to wrong way to address the failures of the United States to secure its borders and create an immigration system that has real integrity that protects innocent lives, protects the jobs of American and lawful immigrant workers and shows respect for the countless millions of lawful immigration who, since the founding of this nation, entered the United States legally to seek to realize their dreams and create opportunities for themselves and their descendants that would not have been possible in their home countries.
Providing pathways to United States citizenship for unknown millions of illegal aliens whose true identities, backgrounds and intentions are unknown and unknowable will undermine national security and community safety for towns and cities across this nation and provide unfair competition for American workers who are already struggling to find work that pays a living wage.
On June 22, 2007 the Washington Times published my commentary entitled:
In this documentary I noted that the fatally flawed legislation known as “Comprehension Immigration Reform” should be given a more truthful and descriptive title- I suggested it be renamed the “Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act” because it would have required the inept and incompetent division USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) to provide official identity documents to millions of illegal aliens who, in the parlance of the immigration anarchists are “undocumented.” This would provide ample opportunities for terrorists to obtain brand new “clean” identities that they could then use to circumvent various “no fly” and terror watch lists and embed themselves in the United States, traveling freely and legally working in jobs that might have critical infrastructure implications or national security implications!
On Novermber 29, 2006 the Washington Post ran an article about that fiasco entitled:
Here are the first two paragraphs from this disturbing news report:
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has lost track of 111,000 files in 14 of the agency’s busiest district offices and processed as many as 30,000 citizenship applications last year without the necessary files, congressional investigators reported yesterday.
The Government Accountability Office, Congress’s audit arm, conducted the review at the request of Sens. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) after U.S. authorities granted citizenship in 2002 to a man without checking his primary file. The file, which was lost, indicated ties to the militant Islamic group Hezbollah.
“It only takes one missing file of somebody with links to a terrorist organization to become an American citizen,” said Grassley, who is chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. “We can’t afford to be handing out citizenship with blinders on.”
This made a complete and utter mockery of the entire immigration benefits program with serious national security ramifications yet no one was fired or, to my knowledge, even disciplined! This was just seen as another one of those screw-ups that are all but inevitable!
USCIS processes between six million and seven million applications each and every year and there are fewer than 700 investigators assigned to USCIS to attempt to maintain integrity to the agency that is, for all intents and purposes, the locksmith of the United States. (Lawful immigrant status and especially United States citizenship are often referred to as the “Keys to the kingdom.”)
You should know that because of its numerous serious failures I have come to refer to DHS as being the Department of Homeland Surrender!
Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat America faces today!
Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within!
If our government’s failures to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, you need to contact your elected representatives to make your concerns known to your elected representatives, especially your Congressional representatives and your senators. This is not just your right but 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!
