Today, Wednesday, February 1st at 8:30 AM, Eastern Standard Time, I will be a guest on the excellent Helen Glover Show which is broadcast on Providence, Rhode Island’s Radio Station, WHJJ.

Today we plan to discuss my most recent commentary for the CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) website that addressed the apprehension of a dangerous fugitive from Mexico was arrested by ICE at his job as a cook at an El Paso, Texas restaurant. Here is the link to that commentary:
As I have often noted, most criminals and terrorists embed themselves in communities across our nation by taking mundane jobs that provide them with a source of income and camouflage. In fact, the day before a terrorist participates in an attack he (she) is likely to hide in plain sight by going to work!
Furthermore, with the justifiable concerns about workplace violence being taken ever more seriously, the vetting process of employees has never been more important than they are today. While many illegal aliens run our nation’s borders to seek unlawful employment, a significant number of illegal aliens have more sinister reasons for entering our country including aliens who have serious criminal histories and may, in fact, have entered the United States in an effort to evade law enforcement in other countries. The specific case that served as the predication for my commentary involved a citizen of Mexico who had been convicted of being a member of a violent kidnapping gang in Mexico and was freed from custody by his criminal cohorts. This thug had been sentenced to serve 42 years in prison for his crimes.
Could you imagine working with a transnational criminal like this guy?
If the thought gives you a feeling of warmth, you are likely suffering from heartburn!
The immigration laws are supposed to prevent the entry of such criminals into our country and to seek their removal should they manage to enter our country. Secretary of Homeland Security Napolitano has often made speeches in which she has minimized the importance of our immigration laws, the reality is that perhaps she should take out time from her busy schedule to actually read the laws contained in the Immigration and Nationality Act. I would urge her to pay particular attention to Title 8, United States Code section 212. This is the section of law that enumerates the various categories of aliens who, under the Immigration and Nationality Act, are supposed to be prevented from entering the United States and are supposed to be removed if they are found here:
Here is a link to that section of law:
Please take the time to review the contents of this section of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
Among the categories of aliens who are supposed to be kept out of the United States are aliens with dangerous communicable diseases, aliens who suffer serious mental illness and are prone to violence, aliens who are convicted felons, aliens who fugitives from justice in other countries, aliens who are human traffickers and drug smugglers, aliens who are war criminals and aliens who have committed human rights violations. Also aliens who are engaged in terrorism and espionage are among those who are, by law, supposed to be prevented from entering our country and are supposed to be removed if they manage to evade the Border Patrol and enter the United States.
Our nation’s immigration laws are intended to protect American lives and American jobs. Aliens who violate those laws and the system that should be operating effectively to enforce those laws create a grave risk to the lives and well being of our citizens, our lawful immigrants and our nation.
I hope you will listening to Helen’s terrific show!
The practice of good citizenship does not end in the voting booth, it only begins there.
The collective failure of We the People to get involved in make our concerns known to our politicians have nearly made the concerns of the great majority of the citizens of this nation all but irrelevant to the politicians. I implore you to get involved!
I believe our nation’s 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!
I also believe that the original purpose of our nation’s immigration laws need to be be brought “front and center” to make certain that our nation does not permit the entry of aliens into our country whose presence in our country is problematic for the citizens of our nation and that if such aliens do succeed in entering our country that our nation have the resources, integrity and dedication to do everything possible to make it impossible for such aliens to function within our country so that even if they are not apprehended, they will find it pointless to remain in the United States.
As I have noted on a number of occasions, “No one would break into the amusement park if they could not get to go on the rides and no one remains in the amusement park at the end of the day when they turn shut down the rides and turn off the lights!”
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, 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!
