I have often noted the difficulties to be found in educating our fellow Americans about a host of issues that mainstream media has no interest in reporting on.
My position at AND Magazine as the Senior Immigration Editor and my website www.TalkBorder.com provides me with the unique opportunity to provide the information and perspectives on the immigration crisis that has been having a profound impact on our country and our fellow Americans.
AND Magazine has just posted my most recent commentary for that online magazine that I entitled,
Recidivism And Politics
Politicization of immigration compromises national security
Here is the link to my article:
My goal is to educate our fellow Americans and our political leaders about the many ways in which failures to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce and administer our immigration laws severely impacts nearly every challenge and threat our nation and our citizens face. Immigration is not really the singular issue that all too many politicians claim it is, but rather a singular issue that hammers national security, criminal justice and community safety along with the economy, the environment, healthcare and education to name the most prominent.
If you doubt the purpose of our immigration laws, just review Title 8, United States Code Section 212.
Title 8, United States Code, Section 212, is contained within the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), and enumerates the various categories of aliens who are statutorily ineligible to enter the United States, will provide a clear prospective as to the intention and extreme importance of our nation’s immigration laws. 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.
It must therefore be presumed that aliens who seek to evade the inspections process that is mandated by our laws to protect our citizens and our country from aliens described in the section of law I noted above are members of one or more classes of excludible aliens. Furthermore, records of entry are not created when aliens are not inspected when the enter the United States, creating additional national security vulnerabilities.
Simply stated our immigration laws are intended to protect American lives and protect American jobs. Any politician who opposes the securing of our borders against illegal aliens and opposes the effective enforcement of our immigration laws is, in essence, saying that he (she) does not care about the lives or jobs of Americans! Yet, incredibly, so many politicians have made it clear that they are adamantly opposed to the enforcement of our immigration laws and yet manage to win reelection to their political offices time after time even though they promote laws and policies that are antithetical to our best interests!
We have no one but ourselves to blame for this lunacy!
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!
