My article for The Social Contract: "Sanctuary Cities Endanger – National Security and Public Safety"

Hi Gang:

Kindly forward this e-mail to as many folks as you can and then ask that those to whom you send this, to forward it along to everyone they can- I am attempting to create a “Bucket Brigade of Truth!”

Our immigration laws were enacted to serve two primary purposes- protect innocent lives and the jobs of American citizens.

Our immigration laws are utterly blind and oblivious to race, religion or other such factors and make only one distinction- the distinction between citizens of the United States and those who are aliens- that is to say, those who are neither citizens nor nationals of the United States.
It is reasonable and commonsense for a nation to prioritize the lives, health, safety and general well-being of its citizens.  Yet our nation has incredibly come to the point where the administration, members of Congress, irrespective of political affiliation, to equate the enforcement of these laws with racism, bigotry and xenophobia.  
It is particularly incomprehensible given that as the 9/11 Commission was clear on the nexus between failures of the immigration system and the ability of terrorists- and simply the 19 who carried out the attacks on September 11, 2001 but many other terrorists- in the decade prior to those deadly attacks had exploited vulnerabilities in the immigration system to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparations.
Consider  Consider this excerpt from Chapter 12 of the 9/11 Commission Report:

Looking back, we can also see that the routine operations of our immigration laws-that is, aspects of those laws not specifically aimed at protecting against terrorism-inevitably shaped al Qaeda’s planning and opportunities. Because they were deemed not to be bona fide tourists or students as they claimed, five conspirators that we know of tried to get visas and failed, and one was denied entry by an inspector. We also found that had the immigration system set a higher bar for determining whether individuals are who or what they claim to be-and ensuring routine consequences for violations-it could potentially have excluded, removed, or come into further contact with several hijackers who did not appear to meet the terms for admitting short-term visitors.

Our investigation showed that two systemic weaknesses came together in our border system’s inability to contribute to an effective defense against the 9/11 attacks: a lack of well-developed counterterrorism measures as a part of border security and an immigration system not able to deliver on its basic commitments, much less support counterterrorism. These weaknesses have been reduced but are far from being overcome.

Today hundreds of so-called “Sanctuary Cities” and several “Sanctuary States” boast that they refuse to cooperate with the federal government where the enforcement of our immigration laws are concerned.  In effect these cities and states engage in harboring and shielding aliens who are illegally present from detection by the federal government.  As a consequence they induce, encourage and aid and abet these aliens to enter the United States in violation of law and remain in the United States thereafter without authority.  These actions constitute a felony under the provisions of  a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act- specifically:  Title 8 U.S. Code § 1324 – (Bringing in and harboring certain aliens)

The quarterly journal, the Social Contract just published its Winter 2016 edition.  I contributed an article for this important publication that focused specifically on the lunacy perpetrated on America and Americans by “Sanctuary Cities.”

Immigration Law Enforcement: Why Bother?

The crucial issues at stake for American citizens.

On November 15, 2014 I was honored to join three true leaders in the United States Congress in a panel discussion on immigration- Senator Jeff Sessions and Congressmen Louis Gohmert and John Fleming.  A video of this panel discussion has been posted on the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s website under the title, 


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.


The starting point for any conversation or legislation concerning immigration must be the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission which 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.

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!
