Documentary filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch tells Newsmax that our borders are so porous that more attacks like the Boston Marathon are almost inevitable.
Lynch has just released his latest film, "They Come to America II: The Cost of Amnesty," in which he takes on the latest bipartisan immigration measure in the Senate and claims made by the Obama administration on border and immigration issues.

For President Barack Obama to say that the border is secure, means he "is either a pathological liar or he's greatly misinformed because the border is the furthest thing from being secure," said Lynch in an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV.
"In fact, they are so wide open that I'm not surprised if you see what happen in Boston happen over and over again."
Lynch argues that immigration policy is a matter of national security, something that he says he proves in his latest movie.
"There is a misconception that the people coming over the border are just coming here for a better life," he says. "In fact the percentages are off the chart in terms of how many [non-Hispanics] are coming through. We found things in the desert, which are extremely frightening, such as a militia hat with an Arabic tag inside. . . . This is just not from my investigation, it's also a Congressional report that was put out in 2012. We have Hezbollah, which is the 'A-Team' of terrorism."
When asked how weak and porous the borders are, Lynch cites two examples in Texas and Arizona: "In Texas, there's a 40-mile stretch between two dams . . . as you go down through Mexico, every quarter mile there's a drug scout sitting on the [Mexico] side. You know how many border patrol boats we have taking care of a 40-mile stretch of river? Two, and they travel together."
As for the Arizona border, "There's an 8-mile stretch; about half a mile of it is a fence that's no more than 2-feet high. A drug cartel . . . sits on the other side of the fence. Do you know how many border patrol agents we have standing guard there? One.
"Unless we address the drug cartels, you will never be able to deal with a Mexican government that is legit and can really operate in the way that they don't have to worry about their lives being taken away."
Lynch cites "one section of the entire border that" is secure. "Yuma, Arizona has a double fence and they have decreased their crossings by 95 percent."
Lynch says that there's no other way to see the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill than as amnesty.
"It's amnesty and it is in many ways the future destruction of this country," he says. "I've gone face-to-face and head-to-head with Marco Rubio and he had no clear answer for me when I asked him, how can you pass such a bill when your borders aren't secure?"
In addition, he argues that there are far more than 11 million illegal immigrants that Americans will have to contend with if the Senate bipartisan immigration measure is passed, and that these immigrants aren't just looking for menial labor.
"We did an analysis. There will be 33 million new people coming into this country in the next 10 years if this bill passes — all looking for work, and if they have the legalization, if they've got those papers in hands, do you think they're going to want to be picking lettuce? No."
