Video of my interview on Newsmax-TV’s "Prime" to discuss Donald Trump’s visit to the US/Mexican Border

Hi Gang:

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:

Border Security and the Immigration Colander

On February 17, 2015 CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary:

Effective Immigration Law Enforcement is ‘Pro-Immigrant,’ Compassionate

The Winter Edition of The Social Contract published my article:
This was also the underlying theme of my recent article for Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS):

For America to Do Well, Americans Must Do Well

Back on October 29, 2011, nearly four years ago, Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) posted my article
that focused on how “Sanctuary Cities” were protecting illegal aliens and leaving American citizens and lawful immigrants vulnerable.

When Will Americans Find True Sanctuary in Our Cities?

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

On November 17, 2014 CAPS posted my commentary with a similar theme:

How far have we fallen that enforcing some of our most fundamental and important laws that were enacted to protect national security, public safety and the jobs of Americans could be controversial?  How far have we fallen that the federal government sues states that openly and contemptuously shield illegal aliens from detection by our federal government?  
As you know, I have written a number of articles about Sanctuary Cities- I have attached links to those articles below- 
In addition to creating new laws we must have an adequate number of ICE agents and other personnel, including prosecutors, to enforce this law that you have worked to enact.
In 1986 was involved in the deportation of a convicted drug trafficker from Panama who had been granted LPR status only to have it revoked after his convictions.  He re-entered the United States illegally and was arrested twice by the NYPD.  Sanctuary policies of the NYPD prevented the police from notifying INS that he was back in the United States and in police custody.  Each time he was released.  The third time he is encountered by a cop, 24 year old New York City Police Officer Robert Machate.  He grabbed for the officer’s gun and, in the fight that ensued, the police officer was killed.  I testified at the murder trial.  His wife was, at the time of his murder, pregnant with his daughter he would never see.  By a truly strange coincidence I met her 20 years after her dad was killed.
I also noted in the article that I had worked with then Senator Al D’Amato to create the Aggravated Felony Statute that provides a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for criminal aliens who are deported from the United States and subsequently reenter the United States without authorization.
It has been reported that in 2010, of all federal prosecutions, 30% nationally, were for violation of this statute.  I actually had the satisfaction of making the first arrest in New York of a Dominican Drug dealer who was sentenced to roughly 5 years in prison for this crime. 
I testified about the impact of sanctuary cities at a hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims in February 2003.
I detailed the murder of the police officer, my  and other material in my July 10, 2015 article for The Daily Caller:
Here are links to several additional articles I have written about Sanctuary Cities:

Sanctuary Cities and Immigration Enforcement Chaos

Sanctuary Cities and Collateral Damage

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “collateral damage” as “deaths, injuries,…

‘Sanctuary Cities’ or ‘Safe Havens’ for Terrorists?

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, 

“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 in which I articulated my concerns about the previous attempt to enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform in my Op-Ed that the Washington Times published on June 22, 2007 and that Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama quoted from, on three separate dates, from the floor of the U.S. during the contentious floor debates.  In my piece 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.  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:

Immigration bill a ‘No Go’

During my remarks I also made note of the excellent documentary produced by the Tea Party Patriots in which Senator Sessions and Congressmen Louis Gohmert and Steve King were interviewed.  I am proud to also appear in this film that is entitled,  “The Border States of America.”  The subtitle of this film makes the importance and relevance of the immigration crisis clear to all Americans:  “Every State is Now a Border State.”  I am also proud to have been interviewed with for this important film.
On November 10, 2014 Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) posted my commentary:
On October 30, 2014 FrontPage Magazine published my article:
One of the issues I raised in that article was how Chuck Schumer, one of the “Eight Gangsters” who concocted “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” legislation (S 744) had recently stood before the television cameras and forest of radio and TV microphones and railed about how there had been a series of trespassers who took down the American flags on the Brooklyn Bridge, hung a Palestinian flag on the Manhattan bridge and carried out a base jump from the World Trade Center.  Schumer declared that the way to deter trespassing is to increase the maximum punishment for the crime of trespassing from the current one year in prison to a maximum of five years in prison.  He said that if trespassers were arrested they should face the maximum penalty because trespassing poses a threat to public safety.
As I noted in my article, Schumer, and former Mayor Bloomberg who also demanded that trespassers who trespassed into public housing projects be prosecuted to deter that crime, both demonstrated an acute lack of mouth/ear coordination.  Their own ears cannot hear what comes out of their won mouths!  They are not stupid but apparently expect Americans to be stupid!  The solution to aliens who trespass on the United States is to deter that form of trespassing the very same way- arrest those who violate the laws and punish them!  This is not hard to figure out- the issue is that these “leaders” don’t want to stop illegal immigration but make remove the distinction between legal immigration as compared with legal immigration!

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!

FAIR President: Trump Forced GOP ‘Waterloo’ on Immigration

By Todd Beamon – Thursday, 23 Jul 2015 08:06 PM


Donald Trump has brought the Republican Party to “a Waterloo politically” over illegal immigration, Dan Stein, president of Federation for American Immigration Reform, told Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

“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.”
