Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, a Republican, has taken the explosive immigration issue head on, producing a 25-page pamphlet titled “The Immigration Handbook for the New Republican Majority,” which he distributed to all Capitol Hill Republicans this week. Mr. Sessions’ focus is the economic harm caused by uncontrolled immigration, but his battle plan for controlling immigration would enhance the nation’s security as well.

“President Obama has engaged in a sustained campaign to collapse immigration enforcement,” Mr. Sessions writes. “As long as the president continues to ignore the law, order his officers to free illegal immigrants, and refuse to remove individuals who are here illegally, the problem will only get worse.”obama-border-is-open-378x257

U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who calls himself the president’s “wingman” in the campaign to bend the law to fit the White House agenda, conceded in Paris while avoiding the solidarity march that the United States faces similar threats: “It’s something that frankly keeps me up at night, worrying about the lone wolf or a group of people, a very small group of people, who decide to get arms on their own and do what we saw in France.” If the man who left the gate open to terrorists is worried, the rest of Americans should be, too.

The plotters of the Charlie Hebdo atrocity are said to have traveled to Yemen to train for terror. Yemen has become a training ground, preparing fanatics for the export of jihad. Breitbart News reported in August that four Yemenis were caught trying to sneak across the U.S. border in 2014, and another 28 either turned themselves in or were apprehended at official ports of entry. Twenty-eight persons from Pakistan, another breeding ground for radical Islam, were picked up at the border, and 211 others were stopped at ports of entry.Wake up America

With only five-hundredths of 1 percent of the nation’s estimated 12 million illegals removed in 2014, according to Mr. Sessions, it’s not difficult to imagine that radicals looking for targets of opportunity are walking the streets of America, plotting murder and mayhem. It’s further disturbing that Mr. Obama weakened the legal immigration process last year by relaxing restrictions on applicants who show ties to terror organizations.Obama Muslim collection

There are encouraging shafts of hope in an otherwise gloomy prospect that the president’s failure can be overcome. Two-dozen states, led by Texas, have sued the Obama administration for its malfeasance of duty, arguing that the president’s executive action granting amnesty to 5 million illegals is unconstitutional. A federal court in Brownsville, Texas, is scheduled to hear the case Thursday. Republican members of Congress who are meeting in Hershey, Pa., this week should use Mr. Sessions’ immigration pamphlet as a map to design a strategy to regain control of the nation’s border. Resolving to withhold even a dime for the president’s amnesty scheme, which the House endorsed Wednesday by a vote of 236 to 191, is a good place to start.
