Immigration and Threats Posed by ISIS

Mark Twain once said, “Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” Unfortunately, this quote could be used by terrorist organizations that, contrary to the claims of the administration, are alive, growing and seeking our demise. During the last presidential campaign, the Obama administration simplistically claimed, “Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive” as a campaign slogan. The administration...

Aliens Convicted of Murder, Other Serious Crimes Released by Administration

Many police departments around the country have adopted the motto, “To Protect and Serve,” to describe their mission. The primary purpose of the immigration laws of the United States is to protect innocent lives and the jobs of American workers. Certainly these goals are important and consistent with the motto above. The clearest evidence of the importance and intentions of the immigration laws...

Fmr INS Agent: Obama ‘Obviously’ Wants Border Crisis to Continue

On July 29, 2014, I was a guest on the Fox News program, “Your World with Neil Cavuto.” I have had the pleasure of being a guest on Neil's show many times over the past several years, and I cannot recall a time when he seemed more revved up than he was July 29 – and with good reason. Mobs of illegal aliens defiantly standing outside the White House holding signs that identified them as being...

Change is Coming to America – Every Day Across our Porous Borders

Upon being elected President of the United States, Barack Obama delivered a speech in which he said, in part, “Change has come to America.” Bad as our immigration crisis has been for decades, it has gotten far worse in recent years. Now it’s quickly accelerating to the point of anarchy as our southwest border is swamped with illegal aliens, and the overflow reverberates across the United States....

Michelle Malkin's June 11, 2014, column, “The New Dumping Grounds,” provides insight and perspective on what this means to the U.S. and our citizens,...

For weeks, thousands of unaccompanied minor illegal aliens have flooded across U.S. borders in record numbers, often seeking Border Patrol agents to whom they surrender.

Betrayal of the American Dream

Today the American Dream is becoming less attainable than ever before, while the middle class continues to shrink as America's economy falters. American college graduates are finding it increasingly difficult to find jobs within their areas of training. They expected their educations would provide them with solid careers and their share of the American Dream. They are unable to find jobs in their...

Border Security Is Not An Option

For decades the federal government has failed to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.  These failures ignore commonsense and the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission. Our borders and our immigration laws are America's first line of defense and last line of defense against transnational criminals and international terrorists. When the “Gang of Eight” drew up “Comprehensive...

Advice to Politicians: No Guts No Glory

My dad used to tell me that we cannot fool young children and dogs. I would suggest that over the long haul, politicians cannot fool voters. I am blessed with four wonderful children. When they were young I told them that there are three speed limits in nature that they must be cognizant of. There is the speed of light which, according to Einstein, established the absolute speed limit for the...

Immigration and the ‘Mushroom Treatment’

During my career with the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service), my colleagues and I would refer to those instances when we knew that we were not being given critical information or were being provided with false or misleading information as being given the “mushroom treatment.” We used that term because the way to cultivate and grow mushrooms is to keep them in the dark and feed...
