For America to Do Well, Americans Must Do Well

America’s immigration laws were enacted to achieve two primary goals: protect the jobs of American workers and protect innocent lives. It is impossible to imagine that politicians who traditionally campaign on promises to create jobs for their constituents and reduce crime could take issue with the effective enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws. Yet, Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR...

Exiting Senator’s Report Describes DHS Failure to Secure Borders, Enforce Immigration Laws

The January 7, 2015, terror attack on Paris underscores the fact that, where the “War on Terror” is concerned, the “All clear” has not sounded. Borders and immigration laws are America’s first line and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals from around the world; yet, we continue to operate as though borders don’t matter. The failures in immigration...

Obama’s ‘Gift’ to International Terrorists: Immigration Executive Action

The December 11, 2014, Fox News article, “Fox News Poll: 81 percent expect ISIS attack on US, majority says keep Gitmo open,” makes it clear that the threat of a terror attack, carried out on U.S. soil, is of great concern to the overwhelming majority of American citizens. This is certainly understandable. Although the terror attacks of 9/11 occurred more than 13 years ago, no one who lived...

Criminal Aliens Are Not a Deportation Priority under Obama Immigration Solution

While political “Conservatives” may have heated debates with political “Liberals” on a host of issues, both sides of the political spectrum certainly should agree that one of the noncontroversial missions for our government is to provide for national security and public safety. This is based on our Constitution and common sense. Our nation's borders and immigration laws are America's first line...

Border Patrol Stripping Agents of Rifles

On November 9, television station News 4 KVOA in Tucson, Arizona, reported that some Border Patrol Agents assigned to the Tucson Sector had their M4 Carbines taken from them, purportedly to carry out a “safety inspection” of the weapons, but that the weapons have neither been returned nor replaced. The consequence of this action is that agents are now sharing rifles. This means that the custom...

‘To Serve and Protect:’ Who Is Served, Protected in Sanctuary Cities and States?

Many police departments around the United States have adopted the motto, “To Serve and Protect,” to describe their primary missions. Police departments are almost always underfunded, suffer severe shortages in staffing and often face overwhelming challenges. The phrase, “Thin Blue Line,” sums up just how tenuous their ability is to overcome myriad challenges and protect the people who are present...

Lack of Intelligence in Failures to Enforce Immigration Laws

For decades our nation has failed to effectively secure the borders of the United States and effectively enforce the immigration laws from within the U.S. The influx of massive numbers of illegal aliens has been attributed to the “broken immigration system.” However, the reality is that the massive number of illegal aliens present in the U.S. is, in fact, the direct result of the failures of our...

The Nexus Between Immigration and Public Health

The borders of the United States are supposed to serve as a barrier to safeguard America and Americans from aliens whose presence in the United States would undermine national security, public safety, public health, employment opportunities and wages for American workers, or otherwise have a negative impact on our nation and our citizens. The push for the eradication of America's borders by a...

Enlisting ‘DREAMERS’ Into Our Military May Create a Nightmare

On September 25, 2014, the administration announced that it would permit aliens who participated in the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) program, also known as DREAMERS, to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces and provide them with expedited citizenship. On the face of it, this may well sound like a good idea. However, this scheme could prove catastrophic to our military and national...

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...
