It was the experience of touring the country and making They Come to America which opened my eyes. It enabled me to truly see how immigration has not only grown out of control, but how the media is ignoring the negative impact immigration is having on American workers, America’s culture, and our national security. I made that film in 2010 - 2011, and I’ve been locked in ever since. I’ve made three films about immigration and will make more, I am sure. It’s like the Roach Motel, once you get in you never get out. And I’m here to stay until the issue is addressed the way it needs to be.
So many people have dreams and ideas, they know they are destined to do something great — they know they want to use their talents and determination to scale higher and to be more, but for some reason they are scared to try. And so I think if people see where I was in 2008 (when I started making the film), to where I am now, they will get fired up about taking a chance on themselves even if they don’t know where they will land. As for politics, sure there will be political tones in the film but it’s only because I’ve become so engrossed in politics. But I won’t do what the left does — I won’t try to push my politics onto the viewer. That’s not my style — not in this film anyhow.
I receive gifts and letters in the mail each week, and some of them make me cry. Example. I had a veteran send me his medal from Vietnam and ask, “Please don’t stop doing what you do, my son was killed by an illegal alien.” I mean WOW, how do I not continue on with the next film?
Fact is, the cost of illegal immigration goes beyond a dollar figure. How do you put a price on a lost life, or a child raped? For example, in N. Carolina alone, last year more than 1,000 illegal aliens were arrested for more than 5,000 counts of rape of CHILDREN. To me, that’s terrorism. That’s our government allowing illegal aliens to come into this country and terrorize our children. I want it stopped!
For example, The Kelly File was interested in me covering the government shutdown and the Memorials being closed. And so in WE RIDE TO DC the viewer is shown what really took place when the veterans protested by throwing the barricades down in front of the White House. The other media outlets like CNN and MSNBC where there covering the story with me, but they aired selective sound bites that made the veterans look like maniacs and racists. It was so far from the truth and I had the clips to prove it. That said, after 6 months of similar events and situations where I could show the media bias that powers the airwaves, I decided to use my footage to make a film. And so I made WE RIDE TO DC in a matter of weeks and funny enough, after its release is when people began asking me to run for president.
Moving forward, I see myself expanding into other issues. I’m getting ready to do a film about welfare, another about veterans, and a biggie in time for 2016, but I cannot share details about that one at the moment.
As for my films, I tell the story as I see it happen in front of me. I am conservative, but make no mistake, when it comes to the politicians, I am tougher on Republicans than I am on Democrats because I expect more.
