An unprecedented wave of illegal immigration is washing over America, threatening the fabric of our nation. But the Obama Administration refuses to enforce our immigration laws, resulting in tens of thousands of people illegally entering the US. Now, our new film reveals the full scope of this crisis.
The Border States of America takes viewers from the Rio Grande Valley to towns across the country, telling the story of human smugglers and drug cartels who profit from Obama’s policies; of American citizens whose lives are put at risk; and the social and economic toll on our communities. We cut through the fog to bring you the truth about what is really happening with the border crisis.
Television and film star Nick Searcy has come on board to narrate The Border States of America. He is an accomplished actor, director, and producer with a career spanning more than 30 years in cinema, television, and on the stage. With dozens of starring and supporting roles across a wide range of feature films and TV shows under his belt, we couldn’t be more excited to have him help tell this story.

A new documentary from the Tea Party Patriots will highlight the insecure border with Mexico, featuring interviews with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Reps. Steve King (R-IA) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX) and scores of law enforcement officials who serve along the entire U.S. border with Mexico.
The documentary, titled “Border States of America,” is hosted by Nick Searcy—a star from the FX television series Justified where he plays a U.S. Marshal.
“Every day brings another example of the disastrous consequences of open borders and amnesty,” Tea Party Patriots president Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement about the documentary. “First, it was a humanitarian wave of crime and disease, now suspected terrorists are being apprehended with who knows how many slipping through; and of course there’s now the question of Ebola. Border States of America with Nick Searcy is a must-watch for those who care about the Republic’s security and sovereignty.”
In the statement, Searcy said that this is something that should concern every American.
”Every American who locks the house at night should care about this. The rest of you should keep your house open. Somebody might need something,” Searcy said.
It is set to premiere at the Landmark Theater in Los Angeles on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. PT.
The documentary, which Breitbart News was provided for an exclusive review and sneak peek ahead of its public release, takes viewers from one end of the border to the other—across all of Texas and Arizona. Local law enforcement officials, Border Patrol agents, sheriffs, citizen volunteers and ranchers all go on the record in the film to detail how the border crisis is not limited to just a few tens of thousands of illegal alien children from Central American countries.
“Who’s coming across that wide-open border?” Searcy says at one point in the film. “The current surge of illegal immigrants includes many people officials refer to collectively as OTMs, or people who are Other Than Mexicans. For those OTMs from Central American countries like Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, it can be a 1700-mile journey to the U.S. border. A dangerous journey that can include a long train ride on what is called The Beast. Then miles of walking through miles of desert tundra where they may face predators, both human and animal; where poisonous snakes and spiders are more plentiful than cactus. Sexual abuse, other physical abuse, and even death are not uncommon real possibilities.”
The film shows the places where dead bodies are discovered—even showing a few dead bodies—and where rapes of illegal aliens who are being exploited by drug cartels purportedly take place.
There’s a heavy focus in the film on the connection between terrorism and illegal immigration.
“One fact that the politicians and news media aren’t telling the American people is is the fact that illegal immigrants from more than 75 countries have also been identified, including Syria, Albania, Yemen, China, Egypt, Pakistan, Somalia, even people from nations currently suffering from the world’s largest Ebola outbreak have been apprehended attempting to sneak across the wide open U.S. border,” Searcy says at another point in the film.
One local official from the border at one point held up an English to Urdu dictionary, saying it was dropped by a smuggler who was sneaking people purportedly from Afghanistan or Pakistan—where Urdu is spoken—into the U.S. illegally.
“Last year, during one of our border operations we identified a group of 10 coming out of a ranch on a known trail,” the official, Texas Border Volunteers co-founder Dr. Michael Vickers said as he held up the dictionary. “As they went over the fence one of them dropped this out of his pocket. This is an Urdu-English translation dictionary. Urdu is spoken in Afghanistan, and in Pakistan. It’s the national language of Pakistan. A lot of different phrases throughout this book circled and marked and no question this was a coyote who was communicating with some people from the Middle East and they got away.”
There’s also a focus on how Sessions says there’s not a need for increased immigration in the U.S., because there’s not a need for more workers as the American people are hurting economically.
“We don’t have a shortage of workers, we have a surplus of workers. We have a shortage of jobs,” Sessions says in the film. “It’s not in the national interest to bring in huge numbers of workers in a time when wages are falling and jobs are hard to get. And Peter Kirsanow who’s a member of the US Commission on Civil Rights, an African American, he has made clear in repeated articles that immigration as they’re planning it and they have proposed will hurt African Americans the most.”
“So the last thing we should be doing is doubling the number of people coming into the country to take jobs allowing us a lawful system of immigration to collapse,” Sessions adds.
Michael Cutler, a retired federal immigration agent who worked for INS—an agency that’s since been split into three: Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)—says in the film that Americans can be “humanitarian” with how they deal with this, but the focus of the federal government’s solution needs to be aimed at helping “Americans first.”
“The rule of law coincides with being a humanitarian but understand that the humanitarian instincts have to care for Americans first,” he said. “We can’t take care of our own people if we keep driving down the wages and displacing American workers.”

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
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.”
