New U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Mission Statement puts Americans First

For far too long our federal government, and many state and local governments, have been representing everyone and anyone but the citizens of the United States. As an Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) agent I became painfully aware of how the supposedly “broken” immigration system has been operating as one of the most efficient delivery systems in […]

Yet Another Naturalized Citizen Sentenced On Terrorism Charges

Here we go again.  Yet another newly-naturalized United States citizen has been convicted of traveling to Syria to receive terror training, fight on the side of al-Nusrah Front, an al Qaeda-linked terrorist organization, and provide material support to that terrorist organization.  He was additionally convicted of lying to an FBI agent. On January 23, 2018 the Justice […]

Illegal Alien Gamed the Immigration System and now the United States is Suing Itself

Once again I have written an article about how an alien easily gamed the immigration system and ultimately became a United States citizen, demonstrating that immigration fraud is at least as serious a vulnerability as is the U.S.-Mexican border. While there were no allegations that the alien who is the focus of my article today […]

Aliens Who Didn’t Register Under DADA: ‘Lazy’ or Committing Fraud?

The President’s Chief of Staff, Gen. John Kelly, recently raised some eyebrows when he postulated that many illegal aliens who could have applied to participate in the Obama administration’s illegal DACA program may have simply been too lazy to apply for temporary lawful status when the program was in effect. Although General Kelly had a […]

Immigration Anarchists’ Lies Debunked: It’s as Easy as Child’s Play.

So much of what has come to pass for “common knowledge” is actually an example of how the principle of “The Big Lie” can alter the public’s understanding of critical issues. Immigration has proven to be particularly vulnerable to this tactic. Under that principle, officials intentionally concoct falsehoods and repeat them at every possible opportunity to convince […]

Saudi Graduate of al Qaeda Terror Camp Arrested in Oklahoma

On February 6, The New York Times published a chilling report on the arrest in Oklahoma of a foreign national who had attended an al Qaeda training camp. The defendant in this case is Naif Abdulaziz M. Alfallaj, a 34-year-old citizen of Saudi Arabia who has been residing in the U.S. since 2011. Allegedly he attended a terror training camp in Afghanistan in 2000 when four of the 9/11 hijacker/terrorists […]

DACA: President Trump and Congress Must Look Before They Leap

There is a bit of sage advice that warns, “Look before you leap.” Motorists are also warned to not attempt to drive through a flooded street because it may be impossible to know the depth of the water. Those warnings certainly apply to any politician, President Trump included, who may be inclined to reach a compromise on DACA. […]

DACA: The Immigration Trojan Horse — Cost $25 Billion

How the original DREAM act was designed to cover 90% of the illegal alien population in the U.S. Today DACA (Deferred Action-Childhood Arrivals) is a major issue for the Trump administration, with politicians from both parties attempting to persuade President Trump to provide lawful status for the illegal aliens who had been granted temporary lawful status in an […]

Illegal Immigration and Crime: The stunning numbers that no one can refute

On December 21, 2017 the Department of Justice issued a press release, “Departments of Justice and Homeland Security Release Data on Incarcerated Aliens—94 Percent of All Confirmed Aliens in DOJ Custody Are Unlawfully Present.” The initial statistic cited in the title of that DOJ press release shows that there is a truly significant distinction to be […]

Trump Should Rescind Work Authorization for H-4 Visas

Meaningful border security and effective enforcement of our immigration laws are anathemas to globalists who see in America’s borders impediments to their wealth. While U.S.-based globalists routinely spout globalist propaganda, often disguised as “news reports” by American journalists, comparable globalist propaganda spewed by foreign journalists is rarely reported in the United States. On December 18, 2017, Quartz […]

President Trump Links Immigration Law Enforcement to National Security

On December 18, 2017 two important documents were published that illustrate that President Trump is determined to keep his campaign promises and protect America and Americans. First of all, on that day the official White House website posted a document that laid out President Trump’s national security strategy to “advance America’s interests.” His national security strategy includes border […]

Immigration System Must Finally Put Americans First

Chain migration exemplifies wrong approach to immigration system. The failed terror attack on December 11, 2017 has called attention to “chain migration.” We will consider chain migration momentarily, but first we need to consider the entire immigration system as a chain. It has been said that a chain is as strong as its weakest link.  […]

Trump’s Immigration Policies are Working: How 800 Americans in Chicago got jobs overnight!

I often focus on the nexus between failures of the immigration system and the way that these failures undermine national security and public safety.  Today, however, we will consider a more prosaic issue, but one that impacts millions of American and lawful immigrant workers and their families and hurt the U.S. economy.  The fact that […]

De-Naturalization Sought Against 5 Child Molesters

Naturalization has provided the “keys to the kingdom” to criminals and terrorists. On November 21, 2017 the Department of Justice issued a press release, “Denaturalization Sought Against Five Child Sexual Abusers in Florida, Illinois and Texas.” According to the press release, each of the five men had become naturalized United States citizens more than a decade […]
