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 July 7, 2014 article for FrontPage Magazine:
On February 17, 2015 CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary:
The online Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the term “Sanctuary” in part, as being: “A place of refuge and protection” The term sanctuary conjures up the image of a place of safety and security. Incredibly, there are leaders of a number of cities and states who are declaring that illegal aliens will be not only tolerated by local law enforcement but will be shielded…

De Blasio’s New York takes a dangerous turn.
On November 15th 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. A video of this panel discussion has been posted on the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s website under the title,
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. However, not unlike Freddy Krueger, Comprehensive Immigration Reform has been brought back to life through the unilateral actions of President Obama and his proposed executive actions. Furthermore, there are politicians from both parties willing to give this legislative betrayal of America and Americans CPR!
My Op-Ed was entitled:
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!

“You have the business wing that wants cheap labor, and then you have rank-and-file Republicans,” Stein told “Newsmax Prime” host Ric Blackwell. “The Republican Party’s going to have to decide where it sits on this issue — because in the end, if Donald Trump bolts the party and decides to run as an independent, it’s a greater threat obviously to the Republican candidate than to the Democrat.
“Either the Republican Party decides to establish itself at variance with the Democratic position, which is to destroy immigrant limits and controls,” he added. “Or, they’re going to join with the Democrats in sanctioning what is ongoing immigration anarchy.
“So, ultimately, Donald Trump, whatever happens to his campaign, is setting the marker on the immigration issue,” Stein said.
But stopping illegals in America requires more than building a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, said retired Immigration and Naturalization Service special agent Michael Cutler.
“The immigration system has 50 border states,” he told Blackwell. “You really need meaningful interior enforcement.
“You can’t win a baseball game if you have the outfielders sit out the game. You can’t approach this problem of illegal immigration without meaningful interior enforcement.”
Both political parties have benefited from illegal immigration, Cutler added.
“It was Jimmy Carter who said we couldn’t use the term ‘illegal aliens’ to describe illegal aliens, and the term ‘aliens’ simply means any person who’s not a citizen of the United States,” he said. “It was [Ronald] Reagan who gave us the first amnesty, never hired enough agents.
“It’s been both sides of the aisle,” he added. “Too many people are feeding at a very deep and lucrative trough and Americans are paying the price in many ways.
“We’re bleeding red and green. It’s the jobs. It’s the money being sent out of the country by foreign workers — and it’s the Americans who are falling victim to crime.”
