On the radio & television today, July 15th, beginning at 9:00 AM, Eastern Daylight Savings Time

Hi Gang:


Today, Tuesday, July 15th, I will be appearing on two radio programs and two television programs to discuss the immigration crisis on the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico and the reverberations this is having on the entire immigration system.  Consequently, this crisis is rippling throughout the United States and the impact is being felt in many different ways.

As you will see, my last scheduled television appearance today will be on “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on the Fox News Business Network.  I was a frequent guest on Lou’s show many years ago when he was on CNN- this will be the first time I have been on his show on the Fox Business Network- I guess you can say we will be “Going back to the future.”

To begin with, I am providing the rundown of my appearances in the media today.  This is followed by links to some of my recent articles and commentaries that provide background information.  Please make certain to pass this information to as many folks as possible and ask them, in turn, to do the same- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
First, at 9:00 AM, Eastern Daylight Saving Time, I will be joining my friend, Charles Butler on his show, “The Charles Butler Show this is broadcast from Chicago, Illinois on Radio Station WGCN.  Here is the link to his show:

Next, at 9:35 AM, Eastern Daylight Saving Time I will be guest on the NewsMax Television program, “America’s Forum” hosted by JD Hayworth.
Here is the link to JD’s show:

 

With JD Hayworth

To provide a bit of background- JD was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives when, in November 2001, I accepted an invitation from then Congressman Tom Tancredo to provide testimony to the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus which Tom chaired at the time.  The topic for the hearing was the failures of the immigration system that enabled the 9/11 Terrorists to enter the United States and embed themselves in the United States as they went about their deadly preparations.  JD was a member of that caucus and he attended that hearing.  I am looking forward to joining him again to discuss they crisis that has the potential to do profound harm to America and Americans.



Then, from 11:00 AM – 12:00 Noon (Eastern Time), I will be on “Commonsense Coalition Talk Radio” hosted by Beth Schoeneberg that is broadest from California, Missouri on numerous radio stations around the United States.  You can listen online at:

Finally, at 7:00 PM, Eastern Time, I will be joining Lou Dobbs on his show, “Lou Dobbs Tonight.”  His program will be re-aired at 10:00 PM Eastern Time.  Here is the link to Lou show:

You will not want to miss these programs!
I hope you will be listening!
Here is some background material:

The starting point for any discussion about immigration must be the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.  Yet there are precious few members of Congress in either the House of Representatives or the United States Senate from either party willing to even mention the fact that there was a 9/11 Commission- when the topic of immigration is raised!

To begin with here are several vital quotes to put things in proper perspective:

The first paragraph of the preface of the The 9/11 Commission Staff Report on Terrorist Travel  begins with the following statement:

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.

The 9/11 Commission Staff Report on Terrorist travel went on to detail numerous examples of instances where terrorists not only made use of visa and immigration benefit fraud to enter the United States but to also embed themselves in the United States. Page 47 of this report noted:

Once terrorists had entered the United States, their next challenge was to find a way to remain here. Their primary method was immigration fraud. For example, Yousef and Ajaj concocted bogus political asylum stories when they arrived in the United States. Mahmoud Abouhalima, involved in both the World Trade Center and landmarks plots, received temporary residence under the Seasonal Agricultural Workers (SAW) program, after falsely claiming that he picked beans in Florida.

This paragraph is found on page 98 under the title “Immigration Benefits:”

Terrorists in the 1990s, as well as the September 11 hijackers, needed to find a way to stay in or embed themselves in the United States if their operational plans were to come to fruition. As already discussed, this could be accomplished legally by marrying an American citizen, achieving temporary worker status, or applying for asylum after entering. In many cases, the act of filing for an immigration benefit sufficed to permit the alien to remain in the country until the petition was adjudicated. Terrorists were free to conduct surveillance, coordinate operations, obtain and receive funding, go to school and learn English, make contacts in the United States, acquire necessary materials, and execute an attack.

I have written a number of articles concerning the immigration crisis for the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s publication, FrontPage Magazine.  My articles can be found at:

Border Security Is Not An Option

Please make certain to forward this e-mail to everyone on your e-mail list- 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:


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.

Last week, 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!
