Orders of Deportation (Removal) = Orders of Protection for Americans

Time and again the open borders anarchists complain bitterly that deporting illegal aliens, including those with criminal histories, rips families apart. They equate the enforcement of our immigration laws with a lack of compassion and fairness. It is time to lay waste to these false and misleading claims. First of all, if illegal aliens could not enter the United States in the first place, the...

Funding Catastrophe: Congress Approves Omnibus Spending Bill

My mom used to tell me, “Actions speak louder than words.” On December 18, 2015, Congress voted to approve the 2,009-page Omnibus spending bill, also known as the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016.” As a consequence, Congress became the Obama Administration’s enablers and, indeed, “partners in crime.” Depending on your orientation, this bill...

Effective Interior Enforcement of Immigration Law Vital to Nat'l Security

For decades, discussions about the failures of the immigration system focused almost exclusively on securing our southwest border but ignored not only the legal entry system, but the solution to the failures of both the legal and illegal means by which aliens – including terrorists and transnational criminals – enter the United States: the enforcement of our immigration laws from...

Immigration and Terrorism – It’s About More Than Vetting Refugees

Until recently, most of our leaders and journalists made the issue of security along the U.S.-Mexican border the focus of failures of the immigration system. They ignored the fact that it has been estimated that some 40 percent of the illegal aliens present in the United States were aliens who violated the terms of their admission by overstaying, working on jobs they were not legally authorized...

False Security is Worse than No Security

Security procedures and background checks were top topics on news programs after Russian Metrojet Flight 9268 crashed October 31 shortly after taking off from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, destined for St. Petersburg, Russia. Yesterday’s attacks in Paris, believed to have been conducted by ISIS terrorists, have now eclipsed coverage of the downing of the Russian...

The Alienation of Americans

As the political campaigns for the Presidency continue and multiple debates provide American voters with the candidates’ positions, without exception, the candidates – irrespective of political party affiliation – have forgotten that, while they seek one of the most prestigious jobs in the world, millions of Americans simply want decent jobs. Increasingly American citizens are...

Administration Poised to Provide More Jobs for Aliens

Virtually every politician who seeks public office promises to “create new jobs” and “bring American jobs back to America.” While it may take years and considerable money for a start-up company to be in the position to actually begin hiring new employees, effective immigration law enforcement could free up millions of jobs (with minimal expenditure of capital) by imposing...

Refugee Resettlement Program Raises Unsettling Issues

Last week, I addressed the county council of Spartanburg, South Carolina, on the issue of resettlement of refugees in that community. Residents were upset that their local politicians had apparently abrogated their responsibilities to represent them by not taking a stand on the refugee resettlement. Many local residents had multiple concerns about this program, but their chief concern was how...

Presidential Candidates Dance around Need for Effective Immigration Enforcement

Immigration has emerged as the critical issue in the Presidential campaign. Most of the candidates have agreed the U.S.-Mexico border must be made secure, although former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has declared that securing that border and deporting illegal aliens would simply cost too much. Incredibly, Jeb has declared illegal immigration to be “An act of love.” I would suggest that he...

Controversy over Birthright Citizenship

Donald Trump’s entrance into the Presidential campaign has turned the world of career politicians, and the lobbyists who support their campaigns, upside down and inside out. At the root of their consternation is immigration, a topic that most politicians and journalists have tried their best to avoid and the issue that Trump has focused on with laser-like intensity.   Immigration has...
