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?
