"Immigration and the Art of the Question – Effective questions that must be asked of our politicians" – My article for The Social Contract

Hi Gang:
Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and then ask that those to whom you send this do the same- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”
Please remember to tune into my radio show, “The Michael Cutler Hour” on BlogTalk Radio on Friday evenings at 7:00 PM, Eastern Time, and find podcasts of my previous programs at:   
As you may know, I write articles that focus on many aspects of the immigration issue for a number of terrific organizations.  One of those organizations publishes a quarterly journal, “The Social Contract.”  The most recent edition of this publication (Spring 2016) was just published and was also posted on its website.  This edition of The Social Contract takes on the issue of how the failures of the administration coupled with the refusal of local and state governments to enforce our immigration laws have created a “Sanctuary Nation.”
I have written extensively about the impact of sanctuary policies and also have testified about the impact of these wrong-headed policies when I have testified before Congress.  In fact, I wrote an article for The Social Contract’s Winter 2016 Edition that was entitled, Sanctuary Cities Endanger – National Security and Public Safety.

However, with the approval of the editors at The Social Contract, I thought that since I had already written about the ways that Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary policies undermine national security and public safety that I would rather tackle the need for the citizens of our nation to make their elected representatives accountable.   
The concept of “Questioning authority” can be thought of in two ways- challenging those who hold positions of authority and how to actually devise questions that pin down the politicians who have, all too often, learned how to be “Artful Dodgers.”
My background, as you will see in my article, has provided me with the experience and training to strip away the smoke screen that these politicians hide behind.  I hope that my article will be helpful to make our leaders accountable.

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


On June 13, 2013 I was interviewed by Neil Cavuto at Fox News on the topic:

The interview ran about 4 minutes and is worth watching.

On April 4, 2014, CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary that asks the questions all Americans need to ask their political “representatives.”  My commentary is aptly titled:  “How? Why?

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.

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!”

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.

American Lives Matter!

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!
