DHS Amnesty Memo: More Green Cards, Family Parole, Nix DREAMer Age Cap


TSA Asleep On the Job, Literally

As the twelfth anniversary of 9/11 approaches a government report illustrates that the nation’s transportation system is not much safer than it was when Islamic terrorists carried out their plot using passenger airplanes as a weapon to murder thousands. That’s because the 56,000-employee monster—the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)—created to


Rise in Illegal Immigration Overwhelms Local Police

While the Obama administration insists that illegal border crossings are at the lowest level in decades, local law enforcement agencies in municipalities near the Mexican border remain overwhelmed with the impact that illegal immigration continues to have on their force. Not that we necessarily believe the administration’s seemingly distorted claims…


Argentine Scientist Sells Nuclear Secrets from U.S. Lab

Two employees at a government-owned nuclear laboratory with a long and sordid history of grave security breaches have pleaded guilty to federal charges for passing classified weapons data to a foreign government that’s hostile to the U.S. It marks the latest of many shameful scandals at the Los Alamos National…


Mexico: Securing Border Violates Human Rights

The U.S. proposal to secure the southern border has caused outrage in Mexico, with one renowned Mexican academic claiming in Spanish-language media that deploying more federal agents to the region is tantamount to an increase in “human rights violations.” Under the immigration reform bill floating around in the U.S. Senate…


$1 Bil Later DHS Admits it Uses Wrong Bio Attack System

As if it weren’t bad enough that the U.S. government has blown $1 billion on a faulty system that’s supposed to detect biological attacks, Homeland Security officials now reveal it’s not exactly the right technology for the job and they want more money to revamp it. It only took the…


$878 Mil Later TSA Behavior Program Can’t Spot Terrorists

In yet another egregious example of government waste, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continues funding an ineffective 6-year-old program that’s supposed to spot terrorists at airports but has failed miserably despite burning through a ghastly $878 million. Incredibly, the feds seem to have no intention of killing the costly…


FBI Lied to Congress about Fla. Saudi Family’s Ties to 9/11 Hijackers

The FBI lied to Congress about the deep ties between a Florida Saudi family—that abruptly fled weeks before the 9/11 terrorist attacks—and the hijackers who carried out the plot, according to alarming new records uncovered by a journalism watchdog that’s led the effort to expose the government cover-up. This scandal…


DHS Loses Hundreds of Dangerous Foreigners with Expired Visas

Nearly a dozen years after the devastation of 9/11 the U.S. government still hasn’t found a way to keep track of foreigners who overstay their visa, including hundreds considered by authorities to be national security threats. Have we learned nothing from the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history? Over the…


DHS Keeps Boston Bombers’ Immigration Records Secret

Surprise, surprise the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has rejected the media’s requests for the immigration records of the Boston Marathon bombers, likely because they contain information that could further embarrass the government. After all, the feds ignored critical warnings from Russia about the older Chechen terrorist (Tamerlan Tsarnaev) and…


U.S. Spy Flees, Flouts Indictment from Overseas

Here is a chilling story that’s quite revealing about the U.S. “intelligence” community; a spy earned top secret security clearance, somehow infiltrated the State Department and operated a decades-long espionage ring for a terrorist-sponsoring foreign government. It actually gets better; when the feds finally got a clue the spy, Marta…


Boston Bomber Could Have Been Deported After 2009 Arrest

Updated 4 p.m. Friday related to arrest versus conviction issue:  One of the Chechen terrorists who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings could have been deported years ago after a criminal arrest and/or conviction and the other was granted American citizenship on the 11th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on…


Top Secret Government Bigger Than Ever

A record number of people—nearly 5 million—are cleared to access classified information and the figure continues to rise, though the U.S. government prefers to keep this information from the public. More than 4.9 million have passed the various background checks and scrutiny to access some of the nation’s most sensitive…


12 Years after 9/11 Immigration Plan Offers Security Measures

Could this be a joke? Nearly 12 years after 9/11 the senate’s brilliant immigration proposal promises to finally secure the border, implement a system to crack down on expired visas and a mandatory employment verification program nationwide…in five years!   If it wasn’t so scary it would certainly be funny.…


Jailed WTC Terrorist Has Website, Twitter, Facebook

Here’s a huge slap in the face for all Americans; the Islamic terrorist serving a life sentence for orchestrating the deadly World Trade Center bombing two decades ago is a social media icon/jihadist hero thanks to his official U.S.-based website. This is a guy who was convicted in federal court…


DHS Watchdog Indicted for Covering Up Illegal Alien, Drug Smuggling

In a case that’s rocked the beleaguered Department of Homeland Security (DHS), two officials assigned to crackdown on corruption at the agency have been indicted for ordering the falsification of records—including active criminal probes—to obstruct an investigation into crooked federal agents. The case comes out of Texas and it is…


DHS Ignores Security Lapses at Biochemical Labs

The United States has for years been at risk of a bioterrorism attack because the government agency responsible for securing thousands of labs that conduct research with deadly chemicals fails to do its job. Unbelievable, but true; while the government meddles in areas that it shouldn’t, it fails miserably to…


U.S. Lets Saudis Bypass Regular Airport Security

The Obama administration has quietly rewarded the Middle Eastern country that produced most of the 9/11 hijackers with a special travel privilege that allows its nationals to bypass normal passport security controls at major U.S. airports. Only a handful of U.S. allies—including Canada, Mexico, South Korea and the Netherlands—currently enjoy…


Pakistani Terrorist Suspect Keeps City Salary During House Arrest

A terrorist suspect in Portland will continue receiving his taxpayer-funded salary from the city while he stays home awaiting trial for giving money and advice to a suicide bomber in his native Pakistan. This is the same generous city—Oregon’s most populous—that also offers public workers gender reassignment surgery. In this…


DHS Plugs Secure Border as Grenades Explode Near Area U.S. Consulate

As the nation’s Homeland Security Secretary toured the Mexican border area this week to promote how safe it is, the State Department quietly issued an alert warning about the region’s escalating drug-cartel violence. Who should Americans believe? Here are the choices from two different U.S. government sources just days apart;…


U.S. Lets Naturalized Terrorists, Spies Keep Citizenship

An astonishing number of naturalized U.S. citizens have been convicted of grave national security crimes—including terrorism, espionage and theft of sensitive technology—yet the government allows them to keep their American citizenship. As unfathomable as this may seem it’s simply business as usual in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the…
