My guest on RIGHT IN DC is Eric Caron, a former US diplomat and US Special Agent. He spent his life successfully conducting and managing covert operations related to national security, transnational crime, terrorism and money laundering. He's held senior positions within Homeland Security and Interpol. Eric recently released his first book, “Switched On: The Heart and Mind of a Special Agent.” In our discussion, we talk about: • What he thinks about the border wall • His answer to critics of the wall who wonder why we need a southern wall as opposed to a northern wall, and what about terrorists who come in to the United States via airplanes/airports. • Why we haven’t had another attack like 9/11 • Why a secure America helps makes the world more secure as well as prosperous • Security policy and diplomacy in the Trump administration • How the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition and the media they controlled worked against him (as the left would do years later against Trump) in a major illegal immigration case. Document referenced: • What advice would he give to young people thinking about going into law enforcement • The core principles of being “switched on” • Nexus between crime and terrorism • The problem of visa “over-stays” • Why President Trump will win again MORE - - - - Follow Gayle Totter: Support Gayle's RIGHT IN DC Podcasts:
