Guest worker amnesty program: worst possible thing for America

President George Bush is at it again. This time he went to the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Training Center in Georgia to push his insane Guest Worker Amnesty Program. He is quoted as having said, "We have a mission, a vital mission, and that's to protect our country," Bush said during a 30-minute speech at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center. "You all are on the front line of that mission."

Of course that statement is absolutely accurate, the question is, how do we achieve the goal of protecting our nation? Consider the President's advocacy for a Guest Worker Amnesty Program and his consistent failure to hire adequate numbers of special agents for ICE and, until this year, Border Patrol agents. Do we achieve that mission by not having an adequate number of Border Patrol agents or special agents for ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)? Do we achieve security by providing unknown millions of illegal aliens whose true identities are unknown and unknowable with official identity documents that would display the names and nationalities that these illegal aliens claim relate to them? Do we achieve security by providing members of violent gangs with lawful immigration status if they simply sign a document that claims that they renounce their gang membership?

Do we make America safe by insisting that the overworked bureaucrats at the beleaguered and inept USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) conduct a computer check of names and fingerprints in 24 hours of each of the 100,000 applicants they would be mandated to process each and every day? (If the prints and name checks are not completed in 24 hours these aliens would be given "interim" documents that would enable them to apply for drivers' licenses and Social Security cards even though there would be no way of determining who these people really are- terrorists would have no problem gaming such an absurd program!) Are we more secure by enabling 22 billion dollars to be wired to Mexico each year by those Mexicans who are working in our country and send American dollars out of our economy to prop up the Mexican economy? (Last year an estimated 45 billion dollars were wired to Latin America and the Caribbean.

This does not include money that was moved out of the country surreptitiously.) Are we more secure when our open borders enable aliens who may harbor dangerous diseases cross our borders without being inspected by our officials? Are we more secure when you realize that an estimated 25% of the inmate population in the federal prison system are identified as being illegal aliens and our borders still lack the security to prevent the entry of still more criminals, drugs and terrorist?

I could go on for pages with these questions, but I am sure you get the point, the President and the "usual suspects" are attempting to ram this absolutely perilous legislation down the throats of the citizens of this country that would forever change America and imperil its safety and the safety of its citizens. Naturally as more and more Americans wake up to the disaster that the Senate immigration bill I have dubbed the "Terrorism Assistance and Facilitation Act of 2007" the President is resorting to an old tactic, speaking before a "captive audience" the newly hired federal agents and their instructors who know that if they do not provide him with the "photo op" he wants, they will pay with their careers!

This is actually nothing new for immigration law enforcement officers, a number of them have been arrested and prosecuted by the infamous rogue federal prosecutor, United States Attorney Johnny Sutton.

It is time that President Bush, America's least liked President contemplate the words of one of America's most beloved Presidents, Abraham Lincoln:

“You may fool all the people some of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all the time.”

When I was a young boy, the old manual cash registers used to have a button that the clerk could push to open the cash drawer that when depressed the drawer would open an a flag would pop up that said, "No Sale"

"We the People are not being fooled by photo-ops and illusions of enforcement created by the President. "We the People" are much smarter than the President and the proponents of the Guest Worker Amnesty Program wish we were! It is time that our leaders did the job that the Americans want them to do, secure our borders and provide an immigration system that has real integrity!

That is why it is absolutely imperative that we must reach out and contact our elected representatives before they return to Washington and the pressures being exerted by the administration and the many special interest groups to sign of on a bill that would have such catastrophic implications for so many aspects of the United States. This is neither a Democrat nor a Republican issue, it is an American issue! Remember, democracy is not a spectator sport!

Michael W. Cutler graduated from Brooklyn College of the City University of New York in 1971 with a B.A. in Communications Arts and Sciences. Mr. Cutler began working for the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) in October 1971 when he entered on duty as an Immigration Inspector assigned to John F. Kennedy International Airport. In August 1975 he became a Criminal Investigator (Special Agent) for the INS at NYC.

He rotated through virtually every squad in the Investigations Branch. From 1988 until 1991 he was assigned as the INS representative to the Unified Intelligence Division (UID) of the DEA in New York. In 1991 he was promoted to the position of Senior Special Agent and was assigned to the Organized Crime, Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) which required that he work with members of other law enforcement agencies including the FBI, DEA, ATF, U.S. Customs and local and state police as well as law enforcement organizations of other countries including Israel, Canada, Great Britain and Japan, to conduct investigations of aliens involved in major drug trafficking organizations. He retired from the INS in February 2002, after a career that spanned some 30 years.

Finally, Michael Cutler has appeared on numerous television and radio programs including Lou Dobbs, Fox News, MSNBC and many other television and radio news-oriented programs to discuss the enforcement of immigration laws.
