A Terrorist & Naturalized Fraud: Why federal prosecutors failed to indict Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud

On June 29, 2017 the Department of Justice issued a press releases, Ohio Man Pleads Guilty to Providing Material Support to Terrorists. Numerous politicians have proposed legislation that would strip an American of his/her citizenship if that American attended terror training overseas or fought on the side of terrorist organizations.  This is entirely understandable and other […]

America’s Gang Crisis: Congressional Hearing Focus on MS-13

As with international terrorists, transnational gangs exploit immigration failures. Failures of the immigration system are, once again, behind headline-making news reports. Last week two Congressional hearings were conducted into what has become America’s most pernicious and violent transnational gang, MS-13 that now operates in some 40 states. I am very familiar with MS-13, I began […]

ENLIST Act Would Undermine Military, Facilitate Insider Attacks

Although it has received scant, if any, attention in the mainstream media, Congress is now taking up a bill, H.R. 60, the ENLIST Act (Encourage New Legalized Immigrants to Start Training). It would potentially provide hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, essentially “Dreamers,” who were granted temporary lawful status under the DACA program (Deferred Action, […]

Fake Security is More Dangerous than No Security

How the “Improved Visa Waiver Program” creates the perilous illusion of security. Once again terrorists have attacked and wounded and killed innocent civilians in London, England. On June 3rd a terrorist attack at London Bridge and Borough Market was carried out by three apparent Jihadists who used a rented van to mow down pedestrians, whereupon […]

Two Alleged Hezbollah Jihadists Arrested in U.S.

On June 8, 2017  the Department of Justice issued a press release, Two Men Arrested for Terrorist Activities on Behalf of Hizballah’s Islamic Jihad Organization. As you will see, terrorists understand that naturalization enables them to act as “Sleepers” and hide in plain sight in the United States and facilitate their movement around the world […]

When ‘compassion’ threatens National Security: The landmines of illegal aliens entering military service

In spite of its well-deserved reputation for wastefulness (and other foibles), Congress does have a “recycling program,” wherein failed legislative efforts are recycled by our politicians in Washington. The ENLIST Act (H.R. 60), currently under consideration, failed to pass in 2014 but is back again. The term “ENLIST” is an acronym for “Encourage New Legalized Immigrants to Start Training.” Here is […]

Manchester Terrorist Could Have Visited U.S. Under Visa Waiver Program

Our nation’s borders are its first and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals. Border security is national security. This commonsense notion was embraced by the 9/11 Commission. The preface of the official report, “9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States” […]

VISA Overstays: A Gap in the Nation’s Border

After decades, and billions of dollars, a major terror vulnerability still persists. A recent headline blared: Secretary of Homeland Security head says terror situation is scarier than you know. However, the situation at the Department of Homeland Security that the Trump administration inherited when it took office is so dire, that I refer to the DHS […]

The Davis-Oliver Act sets out to enforce U.S. immigration laws

Immigration impacts virtually every challenge and threat America and Americans confront each day. Failures of the immigration system have cost thousands of Americans and others present in the United States their lives. The 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, identified those failure of the interior enforcement program, as being at heart of the ability […]

False Claims to U.S. Citizenship — Far from a “victimless crime”

Virtually all criminals lie. Lying is a common tactic used by criminals to conceal their identities, their backgrounds and their crimes.  They lie to cover their tracks, to evade detection and to escape from the reach of the “long arm of the law.” This is why suspects who are taken into custody are fingerprinted and […]

Any ‘Immigration Reform’ Must Put Americans First

Political compromise must not jeopardize national security, public safety, or the well-being of Americans. “New and Improved” is a label often slapped on products to swindle consumers out of money. Several years ago my local grocery store hung up banners declaring that they had permanently lowered the price of bags of sugar. I was impressed. […]

Useful Idiots: American Workers Protesting Trump’s Immigration Policies

The first day of May is also known as “May Day” a day that brings out demonstrators around the world to ostensibly support workers around the world. On May 1, 2017 supposedly pro-labor demonstrations were carried out around the United States purportedly to defend workers’ rights, wages and working conditions.  In some instances the May […]

Trump Administration’s Office to Assist Victims of Criminal Aliens, Prioritizes Innocent Lives

On April 26, 2017, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) posted a news release, “DHS announces launch of new office for victims of illegal immigrant crime – Office built with input from victims impacted by crime,” that is illustrative of President Trump’s pro-American mindset and commitment to keeping his immigration campaign promises. This unprecedented action sent […]

Promise Kept: President Trump Assists the Victims of Criminal Illegal Aliens

On April 26, 2017 ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) posted a self-explanatory news release, “DHS announces launch of new office for victims of illegal immigrant crime, Office built with input from victims impacted by crime” that is illustrative of President Trump’s pro-American mindset and commitment to keeping his immigration campaign promises. This long overdue approach […]
