Electors Threatened 

It has been said…If communists cannot come through the front door, they will try the back door.  If that doesn’t work they will crawl through a window. The liberals/socialists/progressives/communists have lost a major battle this election season and they are neither happy nor giving up.

On December 19, 2016, the actual vote for president of the United States will take place in each state even though a projected winnner has already been announced.

The Constitution does not require an elector to vote according to the popular vote of their state.  But, about half the states do require electors to vote according to the popular vote.

Comes the Presidential Election of 2016. In the best tradition of liberal love and tolerance, electors are being threatened in multiple states with physical harm or death in a final attempt to block the election of Donald Trump.

Alex Kim, an elector from the 24th Congressional District in Texas, is being pressured by Democrats to vote for Hillary Clinton.  “At first everyone was kinda enchanted by it,” Kim told NBC Dallas-Ft. Worth.  “Now all the electors are starting to get beaten down.  There are some electors who have been threatened with harm or with death.”

Anti-Trump groups have circulated lists with the personal information of electors encouraging people to sway them to become “faithless electors” – not voting for Trump even though he won the election in their state.

In Georgia, Secretary of State, Brian Kemp issued a statement last week asking people to stop threatening his state’s electors.

Idaho’s Secretary of State has made similar comments after reports of their electors being harassed with phone calls and messages.

In Tennessee, electors told the Tennessean they are receiving about 200 emails a day.

In Arizona, electors are facing “total harassment” from mostly out-of-state emails.

In Iowa, an elector is receiving harrassing emails.

At least one elector in Detroit has received a number of death threats. Michael Banerian, an elector in Michigan said, “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out.  And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails.”

Although the reaction of many Democrats is outrageous, it is understandable why so many Democrats have become so incensed.  Almost overnight, they have become a coastal party, having the smallest number of House Democrats since 1929.  When I last visited Massachusetts, a cousin (one of the nicest Democrats you’ll ever meet) took me to the State House where I saw a plaque with the names of all the state representatives…rows of Democrats with just a sprinking of Republicans. It is now in reverse, not in Massachsetts, but nationally.

When a party loses the White House, doesn’t regain any part of Congress, surrenders a multide of governorships and state legislators, has roughly 70 members of Congress belonging to the Democratic Socialists of America, and finds itself in disagreement with the oppposing party on even the most basic tenets of our free republic, that party desperately needs self-examination.

The Electoral College did exactly what it was designed to do…prevent the states with the largest cities from consistently choosing who the next president will be.

Let’s make it as plain as possible. There is a concerted worldwide effort to establish global socialism/communism. They missed an important opportunity this past election season and they are angry. They know this ‘Trump Movement’ could spread.  It has already affected the ongoing presidential campaign in France and is spreading elsewhere.

Communsts are like vampires.  They never die. They will ‘sleep’ in their own dirt and always awaken when the opportunity presents itself.  I suggest you keep your doors and windows closed.

Jill Stein Wants Recount    

Jill Stein, Greenpeace candidate for president, is filing a motion to recount votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania on the theory that voting machines were hacked during the 2016 election.  The group admits they have no proof of any hacking activity.  Townhall

Editor’s note:  With Obama having left our economy, the world and the Democrat Party totally screwed up, liberals still can’t believe the people want change.  The left is vasilating between the first two stages of grief, denial and anger.  It took over two weeks for Michigan to count the votes and now she wants a recount…please, close your windows!

Fires Rage In Israel

Fires tore across northern Israel as tens of thousands of residents evacuated their homes.  Leaders have blamed arsonists for the blaze calling them ‘arson terrorists.’   Greece, Cyprus, Croatia, Turkey and Russia have offered help with several aircraft already joining the effort. Hundreds of homes have been affected in and around the city of Haifa.  Twelve people have been arrested under suspicion of arson or incitement to commit arson.  Reservists, on Thursday, were called up to aid police and fire fighters.

Update: It has been reported today that fires have broken out near Jerusalem, some 75 miles to the southeast.  The Guardian

John F. Kennedy

5/19/1917 – 11/22/1963


On that day in November, President Kennedy was on his way to a luncheon with civic and business leaders where he was scheduled to make a major speech proposing tax cuts.

Editor’s note:  A little green book with the heading, “I Will Kill” was found in Lee Harvey Oswald’s apartment by a Secret Service agent.  There were four names on the list, an FBI agent named James Hosty, a right-wing general named Edwin Walker, former Vice-President Richard Nixon and Texas Governor John Connally. Through Connally’s name, Oswald drew a dagger with blood dripping downward.  The agent turned the book over to the FBI and, ultimately, to the Warren Commission.  Some time later, the green book, with its huge insight into the killer’s motive was found…with the page torn out.  


In her testimony, Oswald’s wife, Marina, named John Connally and not Kennedy as her husband’s target.

Oswald associated all his misfortune to John Connelly. Oswald had received a dishonorable discharge from the Marine Corp hence his move to the Soviet Union.  When Oswald found that life in Soviet Russia was not as advertised, he appealed to John Connally, then Secretary of the Navy, to redress his discharge, knowing he would have few prospects were he to return to America.  The reply Oswald received was a brushoff.  The dismissive letter arrived in an envelope with Connally’s smiling face on the envelope announcing his bid for the Texas governorship.  LA Times

“I haven’t seen Democrats this mad since we freed the slaves”

Rob Schneider




Editor’s note:  On June 15th, 1864, the first House vote for the 13th Amendment, freeing the slaves and making involuntary servitude illegal,  fell far short of the votes needed to pass, 93 for, 65 opposed with 23 not voting.  Only one Democrat voted for the Amendment. On January 31, 1865, the House took a second vote.  It passed with two votes to spare, 119 – 56.  All 86 Republicans voted for the Amendment with 50 Democrats voting against it.  On April 8, 1864, the Senate passed the Amendment by 38 – 6.   All 30 Republicans voted for it with 3 Democrats being absent.   On February 1, 1865, the proposed Amendment was submitted to the States.


Note:  Women’s suffrage was also a party line issue.  Starting in the late 19th century, Republicans introduced the 19th Amendment (giving women the right to vote) every year, but the Democrats were able to bottle it up in various committees and unsuccessful votes.  Finally, in 1919, the 19th Amendment passed the House with 91% of Republicans voting for the amendment with 59% Democrats voting for.  In the Senate, 82% of Republicans voted for with 59% Democrats voting for the Amendment.

Editor’s Note: From our great friend and regular SUA contributor, Michael Cutler, retired Senior Special Agent of the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service) whose career spanned some 30 years. He has testified before well over a dozen congressional hearings.

He hosts “The Michael Cutler Hour” on USA Talk Radio Fridays at 7 p.m. (EST) and is frequently interviewed by broadcast media on various aspects of immigration issues, especially the nexus to national security.









DHS Loses Thousands of ‘Keys to the Kingdom’

And issues some “keys” to the wrong people.

By Michael Cutler


President-Elect Donald Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall to separate the United States from Mexico resonated with many Americans and galvanized their support, which ultimately enabled him to win the election.  These voters want to prevent narcotics and illegal aliens and the criminals and terrorists among them from flowing freely into the United States.

Indeed, that porous border must be made secure.  However, simply securing that problematic border would not end the immigration crisis.  Indeed, the lack of security along the southwest border had nothing to do with the ability of the 9/11 hijacker-terrorists to enter the United States nor did that border play a role in the great majority of terrorists who have entered the United States prior to the attacks of 9/11 or after those deadly attacks.

While illegal immigration represents a huge multi-faceted challenge and, indeed threat, to America and Americans, the multiple failures of the legal immigration system is no less problematic.

Many politicians have said that after the Trump administration secures the southwest border and removes the estimated two to three million criminal aliens that we should then consider how to address the remaining millions of illegal aliens.  In reality, in addition to removing the criminal aliens the Trump administration must take immediate and decisive steps to address the abject lack of integrity in the legal immigration system that is utterly unable to deal with its current workload let alone deal with any further increases of applications.

Green Cards, also known as Alien Registration Receipt Cards, are issued to provide reliable documentation that attests to aliens granted lawful immigrant status.  These cards serve many purposes including providing prima facia evidence of the bearer’s identity as well as his or her immigration status that enables that individual to be lawfully employed in the United States.

Green Cards also enable aliens to enter the United States through ports of entry not unlike a passport.  Green Cards can also serve as required ID to enable the bearer to board airliners and have access to corporate and government office buildings and facilities.

In a very real sense, given the multitude of lawful uses for these documents, Green Cards represent the “Keys to the Kingdom” and consequently have serious national security implications.

On November 21, 2016 OIG (the Office of the Inspector General) of the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) issued a press release on the continuing failures of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to address numerous deficiencies in the process by which Green Cards are issued.

The relatively bland title of the press release, “DHS OIG Finds USCIS Continues to Struggle to Ensure Proper Green Card Issuance” does not convey the true seriousness of the egregious examples of incompetence and ineptitude reported upon in that press release or the actual report of the investigation conducted by the OIG, “Better Safeguards Are Needed in USCIS Green Card Issuance: (OIG 17-11).”

To begin with, here is the full text of the press release:

A new Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General (DHS OIG) report concludes that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) continues to struggle to ensure proper Green Card issuance. The audit was conducted as a follow-up to a March 2016 report where where the DHS OIG disclosed that USCIS had sent potentially hundreds of Green Cards to the wrong addresses.

In fact, the problem was far worse than originally thought. Over the last 3 years, USCIS produced at least 19,000 cards that included incorrect information or were issued in duplicate. Additional mistakes included over 2,400 immigrants approved for 2-year conditional residence status being inadvertently issued cards with 10-year expiration dates. The agency also received over 200,000 reports of cards potentially misdelivered, or not being delivered to approved applicants.

The majority of the card issuance errors were due to the flawed design and functionality problems in the agency’s Electronic Immigration System (ELIS). The delays and cost overruns of the ELIS system have been documented in previous OIG reports. Although USCIS conducted a number of efforts to recover the inappropriately issued and missing cards, its efforts to address the errors have been inadequate.

“It appears that thousands of Green Cards have simply gone missing. In the wrong hands, Green Cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and undocumented aliens to remain in the United States,” said Inspector General Roth. “It is vital that USCIS ensure better tools and procedures are in place to mitigate such risks.”

The preceding paragraph contained in the OIG press release noted that “In the wrong hands, Green Cards may enable terrorists, criminals, and undocumented aliens to remain in the United States.”  Yet efforts to flag those cards at ports of entry through the computer system employed by CBP (Customs and Border Protection) Inspectors, have not been consistently implemented.  Consequently, aliens improperly issued those cards may still be able to use them to enter the United States.

The press release referenced a previous report issued in March 2016.  That report, “USCIS Automation of Immigration Benefits Processing Remains Ineffective” was also given a nondescript title that downplayed the national security implications of these failures.

These problems are not new but are decades old and have been getting increasingly worse as USCIS is forced to adjudicate a growing avalanche of applications for various immigration benefits including applications filed by aliens for political asylum, lawful immigrant status and even United States citizenship.

In fact, I testified at a hearing conducted by the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security on March 19, 2002 when it was discovered that two of the 9/11 terrorists, Mohammed Atta (the ringleader) and Marwan al-Shehhi had been granted authorization to attend flight school in the United States six months after the terror attacks. The topic of that hearing was, “INS’S March 2002 Notification Of Approval Of Change Of Status For Pilot Training For Terrorist Hijackers Mohammed Atta And Marwan Al-Shehhi.”

The hearing created a media circus and was covered by C-SPAN.  The C-SPAN video is worth watching.  Every member of Congress that participated in that hearing was indignant about this unbelievable failure of the immigration system.

However, virtually none of the promises made during that hearing, nearly 15 years ago, has been kept to this very day, allowing history to repeat itself over and over again.

Aliens who seek to naturalize are supposed to be subjected to a thorough investigation to determine if they possess, “Good Moral Character.”  however, those investigations are rarely, if ever conducted.  Indeed, even face-to-face interviews of these applicants have often been dispensed with.

I addressed the significance of the naturalization process in terms of national security in my article, “The Immigration Factor – Naturalized U.S. Citizen Added to FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List.”

Additionally, these disturbing reports focus purely on the multitude of failures of the mechanics of the system for issuing Green Cards to aliens but do not address the issue of aliens who commit fraud.

On May 30, 2013, UPI posted a report about an alleged former member of Hezbollah successfully immigrating the United States by allegedly concealing his terrorist background as noted in this headline, “Immigrant allegedly failed to reveal Hezbollah membership.”  That immigrant was ultimately naturalized and held a security clearance.

On December 6, 2014 Fox News published a report, “Saudi-born US naval engineer allegedly gave undercover agent info on how to sink carrier” that focused on how Mostafa Ahmed Awwad was educated in the United States and became a naturalized U.S. citizen, agreed to provide an FBI undercover agent with the plans of the Gerald R. Ford, a 13 billion dollar aircraft carrier that was still under construction.  Allegedly Awwad even told the undercover agent where the ship would be most vulnerable to being sunk by a missile strike.

On February 11, 2014, a hearing was conducted by the House Judiciary Committee on the issue: “Asylum Fraud: Abusing America’s Compassion?”

On December 12, 2013, an additional hearing was conducted on the issue: “Asylum Abuse: Is it Overwhelming our Borders?”  This hearing focused on the impact on our borders when, in reality the asylum abuse impacts each and every state.

Of course limiting the hearing to the issue of only “our borders” coincides neatly with the myth that all that our nation needs to do in preparation for a massive amnesty program, likely involving tens of millions of illegal aliens, is to “secure our southern border.”

I wrote about this issue in my February 5, 2015 article, “The ‘Secure Our Border First Act’ Deception » Why it’s no solution to the immigration crisis.”

Donald Trump has promised to “Drain the Swamp” as he referred to the filth and corruption of our current political system.  All Americans should be cheering him on.  However, he must also turn his attention to another “swamp” the Department of Homeland Security or, as I have come to refer to it, the “Department of Homeland Surrender,” especially where all of the immigration components of that horrifically overwhelmed and inept agency are concerned.

A Free Iran: Who is the MEK by Alireza Jafarzadeh

Editor’s Note:

To understand a free Iran we must understand “Who is the MEK”.

From our great friend and SUA contributor Alireza Jafarzadeh.

ALIREZA JAFARZADEH is a terrorism expert, Middle East analyst, and Fox News Channel Foreign Affairs Analyst. He is president of Strategic Policy Consulting, Inc. in Washington D.C. and has frequently appeared on major television and radio broadcasts including CNN, MSNBC, CBS Evening News, NBC, NPR, and BBC to discuss Iran. Jafarzadeh is also former media director for the Washington, DC office of the parliament-in-exile, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).

From the Free Iran Rally in which over 100,000 people attended in Paris, France July 2016.

MG Paul Vallely, U.S. Army (ret.) attended.








Who is the MEK?

November 2016

 by Alireza Jafarzadeh

Formed in 1965, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), the largest and best-organized Iranian opposition movement, is the main component of the coalition, National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which acts as the parliament-in-exile.

The NCRI and MEK, have been committed to a secular, democratic, non-nuclear republic; gender equality; freedom of religion, thought, press, and association; support for peace in the Middle East; and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The president-elect of the NCRI is Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, who addressed a rally of 100,000 in Paris, well attended by dozens of prominent speakers from all over the world.

A. The MEK role was critical in preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb


The MEK has been instrumental in exposing Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Relying on a vast network inside Iran, MEK revelations of the weapons program significantly contributed to the world peace and the national security of the United States.


These revelations triggered the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections of the uranium enrichment facility in Natanz and Heavy Water Facility in Arak in 2002 for the first time, and since then, the majority of the visits by the IAEA inspection teams have been to the sites first exposed by the MEK.


Senior U.S. officials including President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have repeatedly pointed to the role the MEK had played in getting the world attention on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.


In March 2005, President, George W. Bush, emphasized that the MEK’s revelation of Natanz prompted an international campaign to stop the nuclear weapons program of Iran. “Iran has concealed its — a nuclear program. That became discovered, not because of their compliance with the IAEA or NPT, but because a dissident group pointed it out to the world.”


Many of the key front companies exposed by the MEK such as Mesbah Energy, Novin Energy, Kalaye Electric, Kavoshyar Company, and Farayand Technique were eventually sanctioned by the Treasury Department. In July 2011, the MEK exposed a new nuclear organization overseeing the entire nuclear program and run by the military, known as SPND. The U.S. Government designated that entity in 2014. In addition, many companies, key nuclear experts, and military institutions exposed by the MEK have been sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council resolutions 1737, 1747, and 1803.


If it were not for the MEK nuclear revelations, Tehran would have had the bomb by now. Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) told a House Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing “We all owe a debt of gratitude to the MEK for bringing this information to the world, and causing the United States and the world to focus on the problem.”


B. MEK exposed the terrorist network of Iran


The MEK has played a key role in exposing the terrorist operations by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and its entity, the Qods Force. MEK’s actionable intelligence on Qods Force operations in Iraq saved many lives, and thwarted many terrorist operations by the Iranian regime.


MEK documented the details of the Qods force production and shipment of advanced EFP’s (Explosively Formed Projectiles), the number one killer of U.S. forces in Iraq. MEK also exposed Iran’s involvement in the bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 American servicemen.


C. MEK enjoys extensive bi-partisan support in U.S. Congress


Over the past two decades, MEK has gained extensive support among a large bi-partisan group of members of congress. Congress strongly rejected MEK’s FTO designation, which it viewed as a goodwill gesture to Tehran, as 99 members (52 D and 47 R) called for the group’s delisting. Secretary Clinton revoked the designation in 2012, after being urged by the U.S. Court of Appeals- DC Circuit.


Congress held hearings in the House and the Senate strongly supporting the safety & security of thousands of MEK members based in camps Ashraf and Liberty in Iraq, as they were being subject to attacks instigated by Tehran. There were several pieces of legislations in support of MEK members in Iraq, e.g., H.Res.704 with 224 co-sponsors (126 D and 98 R).


In addition, the National Defense Authorization Act for the fiscal year 2016, signed by President Obama and became law, included a language in support of the “security and protection” of MEK members in Camp Liberty, Iraq.


Secretary of State John Kerry lauded the resettlement of all members of “exiled Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin e-Khalq, or MEK,” from Iraq to Europe in September 2016, emphasizing that “their departure concludes a significant American diplomatic initiative that has assured the safety of more than 3,000 MEK members whose lives have been under threat…I first became involved in this effort when I was in the Senate … I’m very proud that the United States was able to play a pivotal role in helping to get this job done.”


Also, the U.S. military fully protected all the MEK members in Iraq and recognized them as “protected persons” under the 4th Geneva Convention, long before the group was delisted.


D. MEK has been leading the opposition against the regime at home and abroad


MEK has been in the forefront of opposition to the mullahs since early days of the 1979 revolution, when it soon become the number one target of the Iranian regime’s repression.


The rulers of Iran view the MEK as an existential threat due to its support at home, and undermining the regime’s Islamic extremist ideology among a vast majority of the Iranian population, especially the youth. MEK’s modern, tolerant and democratic view on Islam has been the antithesis to the Islamic fundamentalists and the velayat-e faqih system. The MEK has been the main victim of repression in Iran. In Summer 1988, the Iranian regime, by direct order of Supreme Leader Khomeini, massacred 30,000 political prisoners, most members of MEK. Over 100,000 of its members have been murdered since 1981, and many of its supporters are currently jailed in notorious prisons across the country. Most of those arrested and sentenced to death after the summer 2009 uprising in Iran, belonged to the MEK.


After having failed to physically eliminate the MEK, Tehran waged an international effort to have the MEK designated as a terrorist organization, which eventually failed after all the designations were overturned in Europe and the U.S. with the help of over 20 court rulings. Eventually, Tehran embarked upon a multi-million-dollar campaign of character assassination and demonization, which described the MEK as a cult, to justify the policy of appeasement. None of those efforts succeeded.

Effective Immigration Law Enforcement Under Trump

Leaders must follow Trump’s lead or risk alienating their constituents.

November 11, 2016

by Michael Cutler

Now that the 2016 Presidential election is literally and figuratively in the history books, candidate Trump must begin the process of transforming into President Trump so that he can implement his goals to “Make America great again.”

Donald Trump has also promised to “Make America safe again” and “Make America wealthy again.”

Trump’s historic rise to power was, in no small measure, the direct result of those promises in addition to the promise to construct a wall along the border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico to keep out rapists, murderers and narcotics.

From the beginning of his effort to become America’s 45th President, Donald Trump, the highly successful billionaire, quickly realized that the key to resolving most of the threats and challenges we face was effective immigration law enforcement.

Trump was highly critical of the H-1b Visa Program that enables tens of thousands of foreign high-tech workers to displace American workers and also promised to use “Extreme vetting” to make certain that no aliens, especially those who are citizens of countries that sponsor terrorism would not be admitted into the United States unless our government could be certain as to their identities and the fact that they did not pose a threat to our safety.

These promises was quickly embraced by huge throngs of enthusiastic supporters along with his campaign mantra that he would “Make America great again.”  In fact, many of those who attended his political rallies during the campaign sported the now famous red caps emblazoned with that phrase.

Of course the open-borders advocates and immigration anarchists immediately accused Trump of being a racist, the most common epithet that they resort to when confronting anyone who would dare call for securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws.

In reality failures of the immigration system consists are not limited to the extreme porosity of the U.S./Mexican border.  I addressed this issue in my article, “Border Security and the Immigration Colander: Why the breakdown of the Southwest border is only the tip of the iceberg.

Additionally, Trump did not call for ending lawful immigration, only for ending illegal immigration.  This distinction between aliens who are lawfully present in the United States and aliens who are illegally present that, beginning with Jimmy Carter, the globalist Democratic Party and even some Republicans, have refused to acknowledge.

My article, “Immigration Failure — By Design: Doing the bidding of the Open Borders anarchists” focused on the Obama administration and the unscrupulous politicians who make certain to reduce our borders to little more than “speed bumps” to facilitate the flow of tourists, foreign students and foreign workers.  These politicians seek the campaign contributions of special interest and lobbying groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce that see in our nation’s borders impediments to their great wealth.

They also hobble the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States so that aliens who violate our borders and/or our immigration laws will not be identified, located, arrested or deported (removed).

For years pundits, pollsters and politicians have created a false narrative that it is purportedly compassionate to permit illegal aliens live and work in the United States and even provide them with lawful status in a massive amnesty program that would lack the capability to conduct face-to-face interviews or field investigations.  They are delusional and blithely ignore the facts that:

  1. There is nothing compassionate about exploiting desperate and vulnerable foreign workers.
  2. There is nothing compassionate about driving down wages so that record numbers of American families now live below the poverty level.
  3. There is nothing compassionate about causing hard-working Americans to lose their jobs and their paychecks.
  4. There is nothing compassionate about “Sanctuary Cities” that make a mockery of our nation’s immigration laws and attract foreign criminals and fugitives and possibly foreign terrorists to those communities increasing the risks to the residents of those cities and creating strong incentives for illegal aliens including the criminals and terrorists to enter the United States, confident that they will easily be able to embed themselves in those cities.
  5. There is nothing compassionate about violating the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission.

Meanwhile for years the various pollsters and the organizations that they work for have divided American into subgroups based on age, income, race, religion, ethnicity, education and other such factors.

The morning after the 2016 election television reporters appeared stunned as they sat in front of their cameras and interviewed some of the pollsters who admitted that their polls were wrong, indeed, often extremely wrong especially where “Latino Voters” were concerned.

For the duration of the campaign the pollsters and pundits all talked about the mythical “Latino Voters” and asserted that Trump could never get their votes.

On Wednesday, November 9th Fox News reported that 29% of Latino voters had in fact, voted for Trump.

One pollster was asked about having “egg on his face” over his totally wrong predictions about Latino voters and a number of other issues.  With a very somber expression on his uncharacteristically soft voice he responded by saying that he did not have egg on his face but an entire omelet on his face.

Those assaulted by a criminal they do not care about the race, religion or ethnicity of their assailant.  People who lose their jobs to another person do not care about the race religion or ethnicity of the person who stole their job and their paycheck.

Fundamentally our immigration laws were enacted to protect the lives and livelihoods of Americans and lawful immigrants.

I expressed my outrage about these flawed polls that involve a disgusting form of bigotry and profiling in my articles, “Skewed Immigration Polls May Skewer AmericansFigures don’t lie but liars can figure” and, “Balkanized AmericaPoliticians, pollsters, and pundits are all responsible for the nation’s division.

Those who seek to exploit the immigration system for their own gain do everything that they can to entice ever greater numbers of foreign workers to enter the United States to take jobs that should be done by Americans.  These aliens include those who enter the United States illegally or violate the terms of their lawful admission into the United States by overstaying their authorized period of entry and/or working illegally and aliens who enter the United States with visas that permit them to work under the color of law even when they game the visa process to essentially steal jobs that should go to Americans in a wide variety of industries including the high-tech industries.

If there was one bit of advice that Donald Trump should be given is summed up in the title of my recent article, “Effective Interior Enforcement Of Immigration Laws Vital To National Security.”

In fact, effective interior enforcement is not only essential to national security and public safety but is essential to all aspects of the immigration system.  What follows is a brief and overly simplified explanation of how effective interior enforcement would help.

Each year the United States lawfully admits tens of millions of non-immigrant visitors.  Each year it is estimated that roughly one-half millions of these aliens fail to depart the United States.  Other non-immigrants admitted as foreign students fail to attend school for which they were admitted to attend while authorized foreign workers fail to go to the jobs for which they were admitted.

A dedicated cadre of immigration enforcement personnel need to be available to seek theses illegal aliens along with this aliens who fail to show up for immigration court appearances.

While there are those who claim that making E-Verify mandatory is the solution to the enforcement of our immigration laws to prevent employers from hiring illegal aliens, they ignore that many such unscrupulous employers simply pay illegal aliens “off the books.”

Again, the solution is to have an adequate number of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents available to conduct these investigations.

Every year more than six million applications for various immigration benefits are filed and fraud is common.  Immigration fraud was identified by the 9/11 Commission as a key entry and embedding tactic of terrorists.  Having an adequate number of agents to conduct fraud investigations could deter that fraud.  Furthermore, even if a fraud applications did not result in a prosecution, aliens who participate in such fraud could be easily deported.

At the beginning of my career I participated in a fraud pilot program involving marriage fraud that was so effective that within one year the number of applications filed was just a fraction of what it had been and fraud that had been common became rare.

Now Soon-to-be President Trump is about to set up shop in the Oval Office and these immigration anarchist / anti-American exploiters are in panic mode.  They know that there is indeed a new sheriff in town and he is on to their game.

They can either board Trump’s train or risk being run over by it.
