Filmmaker-Activist Lynch: Keeping Illegals Out Will Help With Many Issues

By    |   Friday, 17 October 2014 03:19 PM

The United States can more readily fight terrorism and out-of-control disease by ending the incentives people have to cross the border, acclaimed documentary filmmaker and conservative activist Dennis Michael Lynch says.

"You have to remove the incentive for people to come here illegally. Nobody ever talks about that. It's always the sexy words of we've got to shut down the border. No, it doesn't work," Lynch said Friday on the "Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The way you do it is you fight fire with fire. You go after the employers who employ these people and you find them. If they do it again, they're going to be prosecuted.

"Then, you have to start doing deportations. Humanely, you let Joe from wherever take home his bag of cash, he worked for it. You tell him take that money home and invest it. Invest it in your country and in a business."

Moves such as those will send a message "America is not playing games anymore" by pulling the plug on jobs and eventual citizenship, according to Lynch.

Lynch — who made the 2012 expose, "They Come to America," a documentary exploring the human and financial costs of illegal immigration — believes that Mexico is part of the problem.

"I remember George W. Bush had said that Mexico was our best friend. With a best friend acting like that, I'm not sure I want a best friend like that," he said.

"Illegal immigration touches everything; health, terrorism, education, you name it across the board. It's an epidemic. In a time we have ISIS penetrating into the U.S., how are you going to turn around and process 11 million to 40 million people? You're not. You're going to rubber stamp them, give documents over and say, 'Go ahead fly in and out of the U.S.'"

If the government tackles the issue, Lynch believes, the number of welfare recipients will be reduced, unemployment numbers will nose dive and wages will be increased.

"This is the way you fix America … You fix it the right way and all the other things start to really improve themselves," he said.

Lynch gets a rude awakening every time he visits the U.S.-Mexico border with his film crews.

"Every time I go down, it's worse than it was the year before. I can't understand it. Especially, in a time right now where we've got ISIS operating in Mexico, Ebola fears and yet, that's what you're seeing across an entire border," he said.

"The president's job, primarily, is to take care of the well being of the U.S. and American citizens. Yet, he's leaving the door wide open for every problem we can possibly imagine to come through.

"This is the number one problem we have in this country and I've been saying it for years … If I was the president, that would be shut down in a heartbeat faster than you can get through a sentence. Yet, there seems to be absolutely no concern."

He compared the U.S. strategy to football.

"What's happening is that on our defense, we've decided we don't need the defensive line; everybody is playing linebacker and safety," Lynch said.

He said he obtained classified border patrol documentation earlier this year that revealed all of the different diseases being caught at the border.

"[It's] everything from chickenpox to pneumonia, to tuberculosis, one after the next, after the next. The list just didn't stop and that was for one location out of the 90," Lynch said.

"Not only do you have to worry about the diseases, but another thing in terms of terror. I'm a guy that witnessed 9/11. I stood at the bottom of those towers and ran as they collapsed.

"I know for certain that terror networks are working with the drug cartels. The drug cartels are not prejudiced. If you've got green in your hands, they're willing to help you out."
