Documentary: "The Border States of America" just received an award! (I am proud to have been interviewed for this film)

Hi Gang:
Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and ask them to do the same- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
I just received notice that the producers of a documentary I was proud to be interviewed for, The Border States of America were awarded a bronze medal at the 36th Annual Telly Awards for that documentary. 

I sent out a notice about this documentary before, but given all of the discussions that are focusing on the issue of border security, I urge you to click on that link above and watch this excellent film.  It is available, in its entirety for my favorite price- FREE!

Among the people who were interviewed for this important film are Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressional Representatives Louie Gohmert and Steve King. 

On November 15, 2014 I was honored to join three true leaders in the United States Congress in a panel discussion on immigration- Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressmen Louis Gohmert and John Fleming at an event that was sponsored by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.  A video of this panel discussion has been posted on the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s website under the title, “Immigration Wars”
The perspectives of these true leaders are well worth listening to.
During my remarks at the panel discussion,  I referenced an Op-Ed I had written for the Washington Times, published on June 22, 2007 in which I articulated my concerns about the previous attempt to enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform in my Op-Ed, Immigration bill a ‘No Go in which I recommended that Comprehensive Immigration Reform be given a more honest and descriptive title, I suggested that it be renamed the “Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act!”  

I recommend you review Senator Session’s statement on June 27, 2007 from the floor of the U.S. Senate on the Immigration Bill in which the Senator made reference to my suggested new name to that disastrous legislation in my Washington Times Op-Ed.  His impassioned pleas to his colleagues averted a catastrophe and that legislation was defeated.

Ground Floor Video presents,
The Border States of America
The Telly Awards has named Ground Floor Video as a Bronze winner in the 36th Annual Telly Awards for their documentary titled The Border States of America.   With nearly 12,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries, this is truly an honor.
The Border States of America, 
a documentary film commissioned by Tea Party Patriots Inc., takes viewers from the Rio Grande Valley to towns across the country, telling the story of human smugglers and drug cartels who profit from Washington’s refusal to enforce our immigration laws. Thousands of people are illegally entering the US putting citizens lives at risk and taking a dangerous economic toll on our communities. Border States cuts through the fog to bring you the truth about what is really happening on the border by following local sheriffs and Border Patrol agents as they come into contact with gang members, human trafficking participants and residents victimized by this crisis. Hosted by international televisionand film star, Nick Searcy, this film exposes the ugly underbelly of life and death along the Mexican border. 
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.
A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents. Less than 10% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Silver Telly while approximately 25% of entries are chosen as Winners of the Bronze Telly.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards. “Ground Floor Video’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”
“We are proud to add another Telly Award to our company’s resume. The Border States of America carried us over 1200 miles of the border where we met the men and women that stand at our gateway daily making sure we are safe and protected. Seeing how this crisis has impacted them and their communities, sometimes in very violent ways is heart wrentching. What we learned is that the problem is crawling its way into every city and town in America making every state a border state.” – Luke Livingston, Executive Producer

I addressed the many components of the dysfunctional immigration system that go well beyond the obvious failure of the administration to secure the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico in my article for the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s FrontPage Magazine:

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 against international terrorists and transnational criminals.  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.  

The starting point for any conversation or legislation concerning immigration must be the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission which 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.

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.

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.

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!
