My Commentary: "Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act"

Hi Gang:

On April 8, 2014 the American Outrage website posted my article:
On April 11, 2014 the American Outrage website posted the second half of my commentary:
The title of this piece was actually derived from an Op-Ed I wrote for the Washington Times when Comprehensive Immigration Reform was first proposed and I was greatly concerned about the impact that such a program would have on national security.  Almost every discussion on immigration focuses on the U.S./Mexican border and the issue of E-Verify.  While undeniably these are significant components of the immigration system, they are hardly the only components of that failing system.  My Op-Ed for the Washington Times and my most current article for American Outrage provides the information and insight that absolutely no one is willing to discuss or consider.  You will be amazed at how the issues I raise in this piece never see “light of day” among the journalists and most of our political leaders when they discuss immigration.
The concerns I had back then have only intensified as ever more illegal aliens enter the United States and as the administration refuses to take commonsense measures to actually enforce our immigration laws that, at their foundation, were enacted to protect innocent lives and the jobs of American workers.  In a very real sense, we have become our own worst enemy.
If you want to give advocates for those Comprehensive Immigration Reform a serious jolt, you need only ask them one question, “Shouldn’t the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission and the 9/11 Commission staff be the starting point for any discussion about immigration?”
That innocuous sounding and reason-based question will either get supporters of Comprehensive Immigration Reform to become angry, ineptly attempt to dodge the question or simply walk away.  The reason is simple- as Jack Nicholson’s character in “A Few Good Men” barked from the witness stand at the famous court martial scene, “You can’t handle the truth!”  Of course it is not that we can’t handle the truth, it is that they cannot refute the truth.  They must obfuscate the truth if they are to succeed in jamming Comprehensive Immigration Reform down our throats.  For them, the truth and reason must be avoided at all  costs.
My mission however, is to provide you with the facts and the truth and have you decide for yourself if Comprehensive Immigration Reform would enhance or undermine national security and public safety- if Comprehensive Immigration Reform would improve the standard of living for most Americans who struggle for their thin slice of the American Dream or plunge them into poverty.
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!
