Dear Friends of LIFA:

This week we are sending you excerpts from an article by LIFA contributor Michael Cutler who is a retired Senior Special Agent of the former INS (Immigration and Naturalization Service).

“I have spent years disclosing the Obama scam known as DACA (Deferred Action-Childhood Arrivals) that was designed to enact the DREAM Act by executive caveat when Congress refused to pass the DREAM Act.

The idea that funding a wall while providing lawful immigration status to unknown millions of illegal aliens who may be in their mid-30’s is not an act of compassion but national suicide.

After the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 our leaders constantly reminded us that for the terrorists to succeed, they only had to “get it right” once.  For America to thwart the terrorists, our officials had to “get it right” 100% of the time.

Taking warning into account, every alien who gains entry into the United states, either legally or illegally, provides the terrorists with that single opportunity they seek.  Every application for an immigration benefit that is approved similarly provides terrorists with that single opportunity they need to attack us.”

“Being “Pro-Enforcement” is not “Anti-Immigrant.”  Indeed, advocates for immigration anarchy are actually taking an “Anti-Immigrant” position by obfuscating the line that separates lawful immigrants from illegal aliens.  To provide a bit of clarity, while we are indeed a “Nation of immigrants” America is not a nation of trespassers.  The difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien is comparable to the difference between a house guest and a burglar.

Americans must be willing to stand their ground and not be intimidated by the false accusations- far too much hangs in the balance!  We must speak out against mayors and governors who create “Sanctuary Cities” and “Sanctuary States.”

Many people have come to complain that we have become too “Politically Correct” to speak the truth about important issues.  My view is that the artful use of language that has been described as examples of political correctness are in fact, examples of Orwellian “Newspeak.”

Having invoked George Orwell, it is appropriate to consider a couple of his brilliant quotes:

“Political language – and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists – is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

“In my piece I recommended that Comprehensive Immigration Reform be given a more honest and descriptive title, I suggested that it be renamed the “TERRORIST ASSISTANCE AND FACILTATION ACT”

“The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation.  That commission 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.

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.  In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.

It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American!”


“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!”
