U.S. MILITARY INFILTRATED BY ALIEN RECRUITS? Pentagon investigators discover fatal flaws in vetting process

On August 1, 2017, Fox News reported the worrying headline, “Pentagon investigators find ‘security risks’ in government’s immigrant recruitment program, ‘infiltration’ feared.” Military bases are among the most sensitive facilities to be found in the United States. Classified materials, weapons and, of course, our members of the armed forces, can all be found on every […]

Former INS Agent: Media Should ‘Fire’ Reporters Who Don’t Report Gang Violence

Former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) agent Michael Cutler told Newsmax TV‘s “Newsmax Now” on Friday the media needed to “fire” their reporters and “start over with new employees” in order to get the message out about the violence posed by gangs and the horrific acts attributed to the infamous MS-13 gang. “Fire them and start […]

REAL LEGISLATION TO COMBAT TERRORISM: Welcome to a bill that makes a crucial first step

The continuing threat of terror attacks committed by international terrorists in the United States requires meaningful, decisive and effective action that protects America and Americans. Congressman Raul Labrador, a Republican from Idaho, has introduced legislation that would help address the issue of the lack of integrity to the refugee program.  His bill is H.R. 2826 […]

COURTING DISASTER: Supreme Court Decides Against Homeland Security

Court guts presidential authority to prevent the entry of terrorists. Within days of taking office President Trump issued an Executive Order that would, among other actions temporarily, suspend the entry into the United States, of citizens of seven countries that are associated with terrorism and/or are unwilling or unable to verify the identities and backgrounds […]

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. […]
