This evening, at 7:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, I will be hosting my radio program “The Michael Cutler Hour.”
My good friend Lauren Martel will be joining me this evening. Lauren is an attorney from South Carolina who is also a Tea Party activist who made my appearance before the Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach, SC possible when the Republican candidates for the Republican nomination for President debated each other.
This evening we will be discussing the nexus between Immigration, border security (or lack thereof) and national security.
This discussion is of the utmost importance because there are politicians from both major parties who have advocated for a massive amnesty program to provide unknown millions- perhaps tens of millions of illegal aliens with lawful immigration status and a “pathway to United States citizenship” even though there is no reliable way to readily determine their true identities. This would creates a huge national security vulnerability for the United States.
This program would also create millions of additional unfair competitors for jobs American and lawful immigrant workers desperately need.
On November 15th a Congressional report was issued that addressed this threats posed to national security. It discussed the threats posed by the growing presence and influence of the Qudz forces (Iranian shock troops) and members of Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations in Latin America. This report also discussed the unholy alliances being forged by the Mexican Cartels and terrorist organizations and how this unholy alliance threatens the security of the United States.
This report bears the clear and unambiguous title:
A LINE IN THE SAND: COUNTERING CRIME, VIOLENCE AND TERROR AT THE SOUTHWEST BORDER
Here is a copy of that report:
Here is the press release that Mike McCaul the chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation who was behind this excellent and worrisome report issued:

McCaul Subcommittee Report Connects Dots Between Iran, Hezbollah and Mexican Drug Cartels
Underscores Terrorist Threat to the Southwest Border
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the Homeland Security Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee, today released the report “A Line in the Sand: Countering Crime, Violence and Terror at the Southwest Border“, an assessment of the threat from drug cartels and terrorist organizations.
While the original Line in the Sand report in 2006 focused primarily on Mexican drug cartel activity, this report connects the dots between Iran and Hezbollah’s growing presence in Latin America, and their recently documented nexus with Mexican drug cartels. The Subcommittee believes this underscores a threat that is not fully on the radar of this administration.
The Subcommittee believes the presence of Iran and Hezbollah in Latin America represents a strategic migration to position terrorist operations within striking distance of the United States. If Iran is provoked, the report asserts Hezbollah finance cells in Latin America will have the ability to turn operational.
The report cites the central criticism of the 9/11 Commission was our failure to connect thedots and to use our imagination when assessing the threat landscape. This report is an attempt to be pro-active and not reactive.
NOTE: The report is the subject of an Oversight & Investigations hearing tomorrow.

While we are on the topic of the interaction of terrorist and narcotics trafficking organizations and sleeper agents, you should know that Rep. Sue Myrick spoke about her concerns about sleeper agents when participating in a recent radio interview that was posted on the WND Website and be found at:
Here is an excerpt from that article:
Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., asserted in a radio interview today she believes it’s possible that Hezbollah, the radical terrorist organization tied to Iran, may be working with Mexican cartels to funnel not only drugs, but also terrorist sleeper agents into the U.S.
“Former [Defense Intelligence Agency] people and others have told me what is going on, there have been a couple of arrests in this country relative to people who have had ties to Hezbollah or Iran, and my concern has been with the drug cartels and the gangs that are operating in Mexico,” Myrick said. “There is, what I have been told, a very strong presence there of coordination between the two.”

The immigration laws are supposed to achieve two primary goals- to protect American lives and protect Americans’ jobs.
Also please check out my website at AND Magazine:
Our nation is greatly benefited by the rich diversity of our people which is why I could never imagine living anywhere except New York City, arguably the most diverse city in our nation if not, in fact, the world. However, my idea of diversity most certainly does not include members of MS-13, the Mexican drug cartels or members of other transnational gangs or members of al-Qaeda or other terrorist organizations!
It is also vital that American workers never be made to compete with foreign workers for their jobs! (This requirement is a component of the Immigration Laws that are not being enforced today!)
If our government’s failures
to secure our nation’s borders and effectively enforce our immigration laws that are intended to protect our nation and our citizens 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!
We the People must 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.
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!
