My Commentary: "Defeat of Comprehensive Immigration Reform Was a Hollow Victory"

Hi Gang:

Ever since the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 I have been determined to educate as many of our fellow Americans about the true significance of the immigration system to national security and a host of other vital issues.  
It is increasingly difficult to have an honest conversation about immigration.  While our immigration laws are totally neutral about such factors as race, religion or ethnicity, those whom I have come to refer to as the Immigration Anarchists have managed to create the completely false impression that somehow those who favor secure borders and the effective and fair enforcement and administration of our immigration laws are xenophobic racists. This is the equivalent of saying that anyone who locks his (her) doors at night and insists on looking through the peephole of their front door when a stranger seeks to enter is “Anti-Social.”
The Immigration Anarchists have labeled those who want our immigration laws to be enforced as being “Anti-Immigrant.”  Of course nothing could be further from the truth.  The truth is that this is a battle of those who are Pro-Enforcement and those who Anti-Enforcement.  Our immigration laws have two primary purposes- protect innocent lives and protect the jobs of American workers. 
The Immigration Anarchists have also managed to have the term “alien” all but stricken from the conversation about immigration- unless of course it is in conjunction with the “DREAM Act” which, incredibly, is an acronym for  Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors.  In point of fact, the term alien is defined by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) as simply being:  “Any person, not a citizen or national of the United States.”  There is absolutely no insult in that definition- only clarity.  Yet just about every supposed “news” organization has marched lock-step with the requirement that the term alien almost invariably be replaced by the term “immigrant.”  This is nothing short of Orwellian.

Today, April , 2014 the American Outrage website posted my most recent article:

This is an important fact-based perspective that no major news organization would be willing to provide.
After you read this article, please consider forwarding this e-mail to as many folks as you can and then ask them, in turn, to do the same.  I am determined to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth.” 
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!
