The Man Made Threat To Our Security At Home

In recent days, we have heard alarming details concerning the recent failure terrorist attempt
of Flight 253, but to me what is more alarming, is the fact that this Administration continues to be reactive instead of proactive. Reactive in the fashion of continuing to demand more of our freedom and liberties from the people they are to protect than from those wishing to harm every man, woman and child in the US.
They feed the news waves with stories such as, the two Yemen terrorists killed on or around Jan. 4th in an effort to comfort the concerns Americans are increasing feeling. Do not misunderstand – this information is very important no matter what your perspective of the incident is, but does this really bring feelings of security? And yet, we continue to handle individuals, such as the now lawyer’ed up terrorist, who wish us death, with kid gloves.

But, what really angers me, what causes major concerns and should be immediately responded to by both this Administration and Homeland Security is they handling – or should I say non-handling of the pending domestic violence, we no doubt will experience and for many already have.

How many illegal aliens are in the US? 10 million, 12 million 20 or 30 million? Do one knows exactly, and that is my point…………. if those in charge of our national security have no idea WHO and HOW MANY individuals have successfully illegally entered the US, (many being deported numerous times only to enter yet once again), – how can they propose that they are insuring our safety? And, of course, this does not bring into play those who entered legally only to overstay their visa’s and those who should have NEVER been granted a visa in the first place.

Add to this situation, is the pending legislation, known as Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Legislation proposed to grant citizenship to the unknown millions of individuals who have done nothing more than broken our laws. It is rewarding illegal behavior and actions with citizenship – clearly Amnesty.
This legislation has huge hurdles to jump including that of our security and I believe the American people will once again defeat any attempt for passage. A simple question that is not being asked or not loudly enough…… Why is our Country, our borders and ports not secured prior to any discussion of Amnesty?

How can and how DARE, those put in charge of our homeland security put forth a false sense of security while our borders and ports remain unsecured. This is yet another reactive stance rather than proactive.
Meanwhile we play a game of words……. Words like Man Made Disaster instead of War On Terror, words like Undocumented instead of the real wording – Illegal Alien. So if I may… let me ask Napolitano – using her terminology – “Why are Americans continually subjected to Man Made disasters at the hands of illegal aliens?” I am speaking of those Americans, of all races, colors and creeds, who have suffered crimes such as rape, murder, theft etc at the hands of someone who should not be in the Country to begin with? This truly is a MAN MADE disaster, man made by the refusal of this Administration and past Administrations – to enforce our laws. Think this is too strong, I beg to differ and suggest that you ask those who have lost loved ones or those who have been the victims, if they agree.

And yet, the mainstream media down plays stories such as Hezbollah joining forces with the drug Cartels in Mexico. Per the article, “They are teaching them gorilla terror tactics that they use in the Middle East”. One high ranking Mexican Army Office who requested to remain anonymous stated :Hezbollah is now believed to be training Mexican drug cartels the art of bomb making.“
The mainstream media, those with a specific agenda, also fail to correctly and accurately report the violence and death of thousands of individuals in Mexico and ignore the aspects of it extending over our southern border – a violence that will – once it expands – be felt by Americans. Is the Administration aware of this? Is Homeland Security aware? If not – why not – we are and if they aware and in the ‘know’ why is our security from these risks not being addressed?

The lack of enforcement of our immigration laws and the lax security to our nation is not only from individuals residing in Mexico, indeed there are entering from all over the world, but due to the non enforcement on our southern border – many are using this route.

Such an example, is that in a recent article in the North County Times, a heart tugging story by the Associated Press chalked full of sympathy of a Somalia man who recently entered the US illegally via Mexico. After being caught and facing deportation – this individual, who we know virtually nothing about besides his request for asylum – was granted a stay. Kheire left the courtroom and was later dropped off by authorities at a train station with $5.00 in his pocket.

For those already screaming at their screens “Not all illegal aliens are criminals” let me respond with this………
Although they may not all intend to commit crimes against Americans, they all have broken our laws and it is about time that the security of every American is put first.
For those exhaling the same tired old comment of “Americans commit crimes too“….. let me respond with this……….
You are correct – so exactly what does that mean??? Should we ignore their illegal immigration status or their invalid visas because we have crime?

I ask you — What is the price of our security and what would you not do to secure safety for your family? We must know who is entering our Country and why. If and when, the next major act of violence in American, is from a terrorist that entered not by an airplane, such as the Flight 253 terrorist, but rather thru our open borders and ports, for example Mexico, who should be held responsible. More importantly, who should NOW be held responsible for the Man Made disasters against Americans that are already taking place?

Watch for future articles on this issue in the upcoming weeks.
