Statement of advocacy for blocking issuance of “Driver Privilege Cards” to illegal aliens in Oregon, By Michael Cutler
The state of Oregon has passed legislation that would provide illegal aliens with what are referred to as a “Driver Privilege Card.” I was asked by residents of the state of Oregon, to provide my perspectives and recommendations to the voters of Oregon and why this document must not be given to illegal aliens.
It is worth considering that while most of our political “leaders” keep on attempting to focus our attention purely on the so-called “Border States” of California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas, the reality is far different. We are a nation of 50 “Border States” and the immigration crisis has a profound impact on every one of our 50 states.
On July 8, 2014 CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my commentary:
Here is a link to the website that contains background information about the Oregon matter:
Oregon Senate Bill 833 will provide state issued identification in the form of a driver card to those who lack proof of legal presence in the U.S. The bill passed the Oregon legislature and was signed into law on May 1, 2013.
Protect Oregon Driver Licenses – PODL – filed a veto referendum in an effort to overturn the new law. The referendum petition signatures were accepted by the Secretary of State’s office and Senate Bill 833 – assigned as Ballot Measure 88 – will now be placed on the November 2014 general election ballot.
Due to go into affect January 1, 2014, the law is on hold until after the November 2014 election. Protect Oregon Drivers Licenses recommends that Oregonians vote NO on Ballot Measure 88. If Oregonians vote No on 88, the law will be dropped. If voters approve Ballot Measure 88, the law will go into effect 30 days after the election.
The document below provides my comments on a document that will be made available to voters who will, hopefully, vote to prevent the law from being enacted.

On July 2, 2013 the Washington Times published my Op-Ed:
CUTLER: Tough questions about immigration ‘reform’
Who will find the answers while there’s still time to prevent a disaster?
On June 13, 2013 I was interviewed by Neil Cavuto on the topic:
“Does immigration reform pose too many risks?”
The interview runs about 4 minutes and is worth watching.
The importance of our borders and our immigration laws cannot be overemphasized. In the war on terror and transnational gangs, they are our first line of defense and our last line of defense. They are equally important to American workers who are facing unfair competition from foreign workers, aided and abetted by the administration and advocates for “Sanctuary Cities” and Comprehensive Immigration Reform,
In his historic speech before the 3rd Army on May 31, 1944, General George S. Patton said, on the strategy of holding a position:
“We’re not holding anything, we’ll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”
Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.
Comprehensive Immigration Reform violates all of the findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission but no one is willing to even consider how the lack of real border security and the lack of real integrity to the various components of the immigration system imperil national security and public safety.
The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation. That commission determined that a lack of border security, including the visa process. and fraud in the immigration benefits program, enabled terrorists to enter and embed themselves in the United States, as they went about their deadly preparations.
Immigration is not a single issue but a singular issue that impacts nearly every challenge and threat confronting the United States today! Simply stated, the immigration laws were enacted to save lives and protect the jobs of American workers. In point of fact, our borders and our immigration laws are America’s first line of defense and last line of defense against international terrorists and transnational criminals.
It is not “Anti-Immigrant” to be “Pro-American!”
Our armed forces are charged with securing America’s borders externally while the DHS is supposed to secure those same borders from within. The failures of the DHS to live up to its half of the equation are undermining the efforts, valor and incredible sacrifices of Americas men and women who serve in our military!
If our government’s failures to protect American jobs by securing our nation’s borders and effectively enforcing our immigration laws concerns you or especially if it angers you, I ask you to call your Senators and Congressional “Representative. This is not only your right- it is your obligation!
All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!
We live in a perilous world and in a perilous era. The survival of our nation and the lives of our citizens hang in the balance.
This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!
You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!
Democracy is not a spectator sport!
Lead, follow or get out of the way!
