Kindly forward this e-mail to your senators and congressional representatives and to as many folks as you can and then ask that those to whom you send this forward it along to everyone they can- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!
My article today is predicated on the stated plans of the Biden Administration to terminate Title 42 even as the ongoing immigration crisis- at the U.S./Mexican border and within other elements of what should be a coherent immigration system that is supposed to protect national security, public safety, public health and the jobs and wages of Americans is doing the precise opposite.
As you will see in my commentary- Ranking Republican Jim Jordan demanded DHS Secretary Mayorkas account for the whereabouts of some 42 known terrorists who were taken into custody at the dangerous Mexican border. All Mayorkas could come up with was the statement that “some of them may still be in custody!” `
Where is the good news for Americans in all of these examples of rampant and pervasive malfeasance of the Biden Administration? What is the true ultimate goal of the Biden administration?
Our immigration laws have nothing to do with race, religion or ethnicity but everything to doe with protecting public health, national security, public safety and the jobs and wages of Americans. Yet the media and globalist politicians outrageously vilify advocates for immigration law enforcement by castigating them as being “Anti-Immigrant, while advocates for immigration anarchy are lauded as being “Pro-Immigrant!”
Today I provide you with a bit of “food for thought” and that you will share your thoughts with as many others as you can. They may not realize the true magnitude of this betrayal to America and Americans.
Facts are indeed, “stubborn things!”
Ignorance is not bliss. Knowledge is power, and it is my goal to empower our fellow Americans in this particularly dangerous era.
If you like my commentary, I ask that you make a point of posting it on FaceBook and other social media and forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can. It is important to dispel the lies and nonsense about the true nature and significance of effective immigration law enforcement in this particularly perilous era.
Being “Pro-Enforcement” is not “Anti-Immigrant.” Indeed, advocates for immigration anarchy are actually taking an “Anti-Immigrant” position by obfuscating the line that separates lawful immigrants from illegal aliens. To provide a bit of clarity, while we are indeed a “Nation of immigrants” America is not a nation of trespassers. The difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien is comparable to the difference between a houseguest and a burglar.
Americans must be willing to stand their ground and not be intimidated by the false accusations- far too much hangs in the balance! We must speak out against mayors and governors who create “Sanctuary Cities” and “Sanctuary States.”
Many people have come to complain that we have become too “Politically Correct” to speak the truth about important issues. My view is that the artful use of language that has been described as an example of political correctness are in fact, the example of Orwellian “Newspeak.”
Having invoked George Orwell, it is appropriate to consider a couple of his brilliant quotes:
Political language — and with variations, this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists — is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.I addressed the way that control of language leads to thought control and ultimately a loss of our freedoms in my article for The Social Contract:
On November 15, 2014, I was honored to join three members of the United States Congress in a panel discussion on immigration- Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressmen Louis Gohmert and John Fleming. The link to the video of the panel discussion was posted under the title, Immigration Wars.
To provide you with a bit of additional material, during my remarks at the panel discussion, I referenced my June 22, 2007, Op-Ed for the Washington Times, Immigration bill a ‘No Go’ that focused on my concerns about the previous attempt to enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Then-Senator Jeff Sessions quoted from my commentary, on three separate dates, from the floor of the U.S. during the contentious floor debates in 2007 when Comprehensive Immigration Reform legislation was under consideration.. 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!”

Discussions about immigration almost invariably focus on the lack of integrity to the border that is supposed to separate the United States from America. Clearly, that border lacks integrity and represents little more than a speed bump to smugglers who transport illegal aliens and contraband including record quantities of dangerous drugs such as heroin and cocaine into the United States.
However, there are many more components to the immigration system including systems by which aliens are granted visas to enter the United States and various immigration benefits such as conferring employment authorization to aliens in the United States and also include the adjudications process by which aliens are granted lawful immigrant status and even United States citizenship.
All of these systems of the immigration system lack integrity. Aliens who have gone on to commit crimes and even participate in terrorist attacks have often been dissevered to have successfully gamed the immigration benefits program in order to embed themselves in communities around the United States as they went about their deadly preparations.
The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation. That commission 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.
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. In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.
It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American” it is also not “Anti-Immigrant” to be pro-immigration law enforcement!
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 America’s 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.
