MARK KRIKORIAN, Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, features in a special-one hour interview about the national security impact of the influx of illegal immigrants entering the United States along the southern border.

Part 1:

  • Who are the illegal aliens pouring into the United States? About 1/3 of illegal aliens crossing into the U.S. via the Mexico-Texas border are "unaccompanied minors." This catch-all term includes young men claiming to be 16 or 17 years old, many of whom have known gang connections
  • Impact on public safety the mass of illegal immigrants is causing, especially in regards to the health of border communities

Part 2:

  • Understanding how the combination of downgraded enforcement, the DREAM Act, and the government's policy of delivering unaccompanied minors to relatives already in the US—no questions asked—has contributed to this "invasion"
  • Evaluating the current degree of security at the Mexico-US border and the condition of the Border Patrol agents—a group of law enforcement officers that number less than the NYPD force and are charged with protecting every American border

Part 3:

  • Ways in which the use of prosecutorial discretion to downgrade illegal immigration to a "secondary offense" is transforming America
  • Critique of the refugee industry racket

Part 4:

  • Reflections on the defeat of the "Texas Reform" in the new Texas GOP platform, and Eric Cantor's loss
  • How much does a Republican win in 2016 hinge on a GOP change on amnesty?

December 14th, 2012 ·

FRED GRANDY of the Center for Security Policy discusses the likely nominations of John Kerry as Secretary of State and Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense, as well as the upcoming referendum on the new Egyptian constitution.

CLAUDIA ROSETT, writer at Pajamas Media and Forbes.com, talks about Susan Rice's shortcomings as the United States' ambassador to the UN, and in particular the failure to block the vote that upgraded the status of the Palestinian Authority. Rosett also explains how the Obama administration's refusal to stop sending money to the UN after the vote goes against US policy established in the '90s regarding recognition of Palestine as a full member before it had a physical state.

Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies MARK KRIKORIAN analyzes what we are likely to see in the way of immigration reform. Namely, he predicts a push for renewable work visas, which he argues will create a servant class within the country akin to that of Saudi Arabia. Krikorian argues, however, that any such amnesty or quasi-amnesty must be preceded by actual enforcement of immigration laws, and a real effort made to screen out people who desire to do damage to the country.

Washington Times journalist BILL GERTZ talks with Frank about the possibility of Chuck Hagel becoming the new Secretary of Defense. Confirmation of Hagel would be especially bad considering his support of weakening the U.S.'s nuclear force, despite an international environment that shows such an action would be foolish.
