Levin: U.S. More Vulnerable To Terrorist Attack Than In Recent Past

MARK LEVIN: It's been a while since 9/11, but I'm going to tell you something. We are vulnerable to another terrorist attack in this country.

I know we're always vulnerable to it, but we're more vulnerable to it today under this President and his policies then in any time in the recent past. And I want to make this point, I want to underscore this point because we are in many ways unilaterally withdrawing from our border.


Now, Obama can play all the racial politics he wants, he can play all the election games he wants, but the fact of the matter [is] he is making this nation vulnerable. Vulnerable. If somebody wants to attack this country, they see what's going on. They hear what the president is saying. They read the newspapers. They listen to the radio and watch television.

Rather than strengthening our resources and increasing them, rather than building many more hard obstacles for people coming across the border, less we know who they are, rather than requiring people to identify who they are if they're stopped in incident to some other event, we're doing the opposite.

We're taking away our ability to secure ourselves, let alone uphold what it means to be a citizen. So I just want to be just as clear as I can about this because all the people in this business are basically Mark Levin-come-latelys. Most of them, not all of them. I want to be clear about this. As somebody who was chief of staff to an Attorney General of the United States when the immigration activities were in the Justice Department. They're not over in Homeland Security.

I want to be as clear as I can about this. If we are attacked again and somebody slips into this country because of the political ethnic games this president is playing and his supporters are playing by cutting enforcement, by slashing personnel, by refusing to take the steps necessary to defend this nation, our own Southern border …

Obama can say all he wants: George W. Bush. Ronald Reagan. Richard Nixon. Ten years of this and ten years of that. But it is the affirmative policy of our government right now to disengage in many ways from the fight against illegal immigration and securing our border. You can't tell me that the nation that built the Hoover Dam, the nation that built the greatest naval fleet that the world has ever known, the nation that built the highway system, can't secure the Southern border. We can, but they won't.
