Michael Cutler: Immigrant Driver License Decision 'Catastrophic'

By    |   Monday, 29 Dec 2014 12:16 PM

The move by the Supreme Court to allow a lower court's ruling to stand, enabling young illegal immigrants to obtain drivers' licenses in Arizona, is "catastrophic for national security," says Michael Cutler, former Immigration and Naturalization Service agent.

"We keep hearing it's about young people, [but] the age cutoff is 31," Cutler, who testified before the 9/11 Commission, told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Monday.

"To use that dirty word 'profiling,' if you look at the profile of the average terrorist, we're talking about a foreign national under the age of 30 or 31 — that seems to be the usual age cutoff for the folks out there that would do violent acts in the street such as committing hijacking and so forth," he explained.

"The idea of providing identity documents to people whose identities can't be verified and then to be able to take those identity documents improperly, in my judgment, given to them by the [Department of Homeland Security] so that the state of Arizona is now compelled to take at face value those identity documents is insanity," he contends.

"It violates the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission . . . it violates common sense, and all that it does is make a mockery of our immigration laws," he said.

According to Cutler, it doesn't make sense that the U.S. government engages in a "costly inspections process of ports of entry when our own government says it's not a big deal to run the border."

"According to the budget, DHS requested $3.3 billion to carry out those inspections at ports of entry, and yet we're told by leadership from both the Democratic, Republican parties of Congress that it doesn't matter how these folks get here," he said.

"Once they're here, they have some kind of entitlement to lawful status and perhaps a pathway to citizenship," the former INS agent explained.

"Why are we bothering to inspect people at all?" he added.
