On April 14, 2014 a local television station, WFMZ, Channel 69 that broadcasts from Allentown, Pennsylvania broadcast a televised discussion about airline safety that I participated in. The name of the program is Business Matters and was hosted by Tony Iannelli.
Here is how the show’s website noted the program topic and the guests:

You may find it interesting that in discussing the way that the TSA screens passengers seeking to board airliners I began by saying that most people would not want to get on an airliner if they saw fellow passengers sneak past the inspections process required before boarding an airliner. This is commonsense. After all, no one wants a window seat on a cruise missile! However, I noted that today because of the lack of enforcement of the immigration laws Americans are being forced to live in communities across the United States with foreign nationals (aliens) who evaded the inspections process at ports of entry. While the open borders advocates whom I have come to refer to as the “Immigration Anarchists” insist on saying that aliens who evade the inspections process entered “undocumented,” in point of fact, these aliens entered without inspection.
While time did not permit me to delve into this issue further on the program, it is important to remember that this is the issue being glossed over by politicians and supposed journalists who keep repeating that we need to provide lawful status for unknown millions of aliens who evaded the inspections process that is supposed to prevent the entry of aliens with dangerous communicable diseases, who suffer serious mental illness and are violent or sex offenders, are convicted felons, terrorists, spies, human rights violators, war criminals, fugitives or would likely become public charges or illegally work- thereby displacing American workers on jobs across America.
When I was an INS special agent, the term we used for aliens who ran our borders or stowed away on ships was EWI- Entry Without Inspection. It is remarkable that New York’s former mayor Mike Bloomberg would frequently rant and rave about how prosecutors were not being sufficiently aggressive and diligent in prosecuting those who trespassed into public housing complexes saying that such trespassers posed a serious threat to the safety of the residents of those housing complexes, yet he proudly proclaimed New York City would not take immigration law violations into account. New York City has been a “Sanctuary City” for many years- in fact, it was also a Sanctuary City under the previous administration of Rudy Giuliani.
As I have noted on many previous occasions, these politicians lack mouth/ear coordination- their own ears do not hear what their own mouths are saying!
On January 14, 2014 CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my article:
The issue I raised in this article concerned how NYC officials were concerned about some 60 “street performers” donned costumes of cartoon characters and were groping women passersby. There was no way to know who was in those costumes and proposals were being made to require that they wear prominent ID so that people would know who they were, meanwhile I noted that millions of “undocumented” illegal aliens could not be easily identified and that these lack of documents to attest to their true identities posed a threat to public safety and national security. Yet this issue was being ignored. In fact, in a subsequent article for CAPS I took on the plans of NYC’s recently elected mayor, Bill DiBlasio who wants to provide official city identity documents to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who lack official ID. This article was entitled:
There is no end to the lunacy where immigration is concerned!
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.
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.
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.
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!
