Giving legal status to drive a vehicle is virtually giving criminals the right to do almost anything they want.  By receiving a valid drivers license it opens the door for the people that receive it to conduct business, open accounts, lease properties and in some cases even vote.

We don’t give (citizen) convicted felons many of the rights that people who committed a felony to get here will have.

The immigration laws in our country must be changed, I think on that point all sides can agree.

What I, and many people like me, vehemently disagree with, is rewarding people for committing a federal crime, whether or not our government or current administration chooses to enforce those laws or not.

I don’t believe we should just categorically box every person in America that is here illegally and deport them—I think there needs to be sensible compromise on both sides of the issue.

But giving status to illegal residents is not the answer either. It will only serve to make real immigration reform take a back seat and kick that can a little further down the road instead of dealing with the issue we are faced with.

Gary A. “Rusty” Fleming Jr.

Award winning producer, director, author and consultant for 25 years, Rusty started his multi-media company to produce industrial films, commercials and news segments.

Rusty is recognized by national media and law enforcement agencies as an expert on the Mexican drug cartels. Rusty has studied the cartels from the inside out, interviewing dozens of active cartel operatives from Mexico and the U.S., ranging from street dealers to the upper management of the most powerful drug trafficking organizations in existence today. Rusty has been keynote speaker and presenter at dozens of conferences, to teach and inform law enforcement agencies from around the country about the inner workings of drug cartels and their relationships with gangs in America. Many of his videos are now part of standard curriculum for Texas DPS and various departments of Homeland Security and the Texas Border Sheriffs Coalition.

Since producing the award winning documentary, Drug Wars; Silver or Lead, Rusty has spent the past eight years traveling throughout Latin America reporting for international television and radio broadcasts. He has made multiple appearances with MSNBC, CNN and FOX. In addition, he has produced multiple episodes of Gangland for The History Channel and produced other episodic shows for A&E, Discovery Channel and National Geographic networks.

His first book on the subject “Narco-Warfare in the 21st Century” published in early 2009 details the story of how Rusty was able to get inside one cartel revealing the operational tactics they employ to run their criminal syndicates. The book serves as a road map as to how the cartels have evolved and the consequences of continuing to minimize and dismiss their true objectives.

Rusty lives in Sierra Blanca, Texas where he and Sheriff Arvin West have built a faith- based drug and alcohol rehab for men and women called; Ranch on the Rock. Rusty also works with the Hudspeth County Sheriff’s office as Public Information Officer
