In his wide-ranging argument about immigration, perennial wake-up-caller Buchanan finally seems a little despondent. The West is nearing death by drowning under a torrent of non-Westerners, the preponderance of whom, he insists, are just trying to earn more and live better than they did in their countries of origin. Some few are bad actors, but they would be manageable if the total number of immigrants were much smaller. Crucially exacerbating the crisis are attitudes fostered by original homelands and others neglected by host nations. For example, Mexico, with its permanent, inalienable citizenship and historic grudge against the U.S. for the latter's Mexican War-facilitated purchase of half of Mexico's original territory, actively discourages Mexicans in the U.S. from becoming U.S.-identified. Simultaneously, U.S. elites downplay "Americanization" in favor of transforming most of the populace into a low-wage workforce fragmented by linguistic and cultural differences. Look to Europe, which from Britain to Russia, Buchanan argues, is much nearer cultural collapse, to see the U.S. in 2050--or sooner. Ray Olson

From the Inside Flap
"Eminently worth reading and pondering."
―The Washington Times
"[Buchanan] is a muscular writer, fully in command of the English language he feels is under siege. He is adept at linking history, statistics and the writings of philosophers and economists to proffer forceful arguments. His book crackles."
―The Washington Post
"Mr. Buchanan, in this book, is positively fearless. He is also right."
―Tony Blankley, The Washington Times
In this passionate best-seller, Patrick Buchanan documents the mortal peril America faces from massive, uncontrolled immigration from the third world.
Pat Buchanan is sounding the alarm. Since 9/11, more than four million illegal immigrants have crossed our borders―and more come in every day. Politicians in Washington either lack the political will or can't agree on how to uphold the rule of law. The "melting pot" is cracked beyond repair, and the future of our nation is at stake.
State of Emergency reveals the frightening truth about the effects of uncontrolled immigration and warns of the end of our culture as we know it. With his trademark passion and eloquence, Buchanan details the roots of the crisis and lays out a practical plan for immigration reform and border security. With an estimated ten to fifteen million "illegals" already here and untold millions more poised to cross our borders, and with Congress seemingly paralyzed, few books could be as timely―or as important―as State of Emergency. It is essential reading for all Americans.See all Product Description

It is all about money now. The GOP worships the GDP. Both parties are paralyzed by guilt over American past racial sins. Powerful Mexican and U.S. elites seek to erase America's borders and merge the United States and Mexico into a North American Union. In the last chapter, Buchanan lays out a national plan to deal with the State of Emergency, before it makes an end of America. An Eisenhower-type deportation program, beginning with all illegal aliens convicted of felonies and every gang member not a U.S. citizen.Read more ›

But from reading this book I believe he does have a valid point to make.
I believe perhaps the biggest intellectual contribution he makes to these issues is his discussion of what is the nature of American nationhood. He makes some compelling arguments that the Neocon notion, which is the intellectual underpinning of right-wing open-borderism, that the nature of American nationhood is simply one of ideas, is incomplete at the least and perhaps downright false. His view of the core of nationhood is, as he quotes from someone on the other side, rooted in "blood and soil".
I am not totally convinced, but he does provide powerful supporting arguments for his point of view based on a mountain of examples from throughout the world.
As far as I can tell, Buchanan does not say that there is necessarily anything meritorious about nationhood being defined by "blood and soil" rather than "ideas", but, his core point is, that is the way the world works, and those who wish our nation to be governed based on a falsified view of reality are planting the seeds of disaster.
Of course, as it relates to immigration policy, the notion of what is the nature of our "nationhood" is not necessarily a central issue, because the open borders policies adovcated by the "axis of extremism" (my term for the open borders coalition of the radical left and radical right) are fatally flawed on so many levels that they would be disastrous even if the flood of illegal aliens entering our country were amenable to becoming supportive members of a society based upon the ideals our nation is intended to aspire to- such as equality, justice, and tolerance.
All in all, there are many books which have come out recently that relate to the illegal alien invasion of America, and Buchanan's is one of the better ones, and, equally important, it has achieved a popular following that puts it in a good position to serve as a strong positive force in advancing the popular uprising around the country that is demanding a more progressive and sustainable immigration policy for our nation.
I can see why some people have said this book is racist. That being said, they are wrong. Mr. Buchanan just plain refuses to be politically correct. For that, he does deserve commendation.
In the end, whether you agree or disagree with Mr. Buchanan's opinions, the statistics and history are not up for debate. Sparing the multiple details, I can tell that this book has changed my stance on the issue and I can see why people like Juan Hernandez (arguably the slimiest most underhanded bum-pimple involved in illegal immigration) are not holding back in trying to slap it down.
Pat Buchanan says what Bush and the rest of our national politicians - in both parties - are afraid to say. Facts are facts, and the truth is that this country is being turned into a Mexican barrio full of illegals with their hands out.
If you doubt Pat Buchanan or think he is a nut... take a drive through Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Antonio, Miami or NYC. We are importing over 5,000 illegal poverty-stricken people into this country every day and it will be our downfall. Buchanan is right and he simply states the TRUTH.
Remind me again, didn't President Reagan already grant mass amnesty to a previous horde of illegal Mexicans in the 80's? So we should just keep taking in more because....?
Mexicans and Latin Americans come from very poor impoverished backgrounds and are ignored by the corrupt Spanish oligarchies that rule over them. So that justifies them invading my tiny North Carolina town and turning it in a gang-infested third world slum because....?
Can someone please tell me why I'm a racist for wanting my country's borders defended when ethnocentric Latino organizations called National Council of La Raza(the race) are not?
Oh, and would someone mind telling me why the Irish and the Italians did not hold disrespectful marches in US cities, chanting slogans in Italian and Gaelic, marching under the flags of their countries and demanding rights they didn't deserve in the first place. Oh wait, I remember that they did deserve those rights....because they were citizens.
Political correctness, not Islamic militants, will be the death of this country.
Buchanan explains why the massive influx of illegal immigrants into America is nothing less than an invasion -- and yet the Bush White House and GOP-controlled Congress appear disinclined to do anything about it. He details how our current policy of "open borders" and nearly unrestricted immigration have brought a stream of criminals and thugs into our nation -- for the benefit only of an entrenched political establishment that couldn't care less about the good of the American people. He explodes myth after myth about illegal immigration -- including President Bush's notorious statement that illegal aliens "do jobs Americans won't do" and the idea that foreigners somehow have a natural right to come to America.
Nor will all this be an easy problem to solve. Buchanan demonstrates that any presidential candidate who speaks out against the Hispanic onslaught in the American Southwest will now lose the electoral votes of California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Soon, electoral realities will make it impossible for any serious candidate to speak out against unrestrained immigration. Yet, he points out, if it wanted to, the U.S. Government could secure the Mexican border within weeks -- and details the political reasons why this won't happen, despite the fact that immigration control measures have consistently won large margins of support from American voters.
State of Emergency also lays bare the roots of our immigration crisis, providing a capsule history of U.S.-Mexican relations and explaining Mexico's long-standing grudge against the United States. Buchanan exposes the long-term goals of radical Mexican and Chicano groups that want to erase not only American sovereignty over the Southwest, but also American sovereignty altogether. He warns against the balkanization and tribalism that threaten our future as a nation, and, for those who have forgotten (and there are many), he gets back to basics -- explaining what a nation actually is and should be.
America, says Buchanan, could soon be facing its last chance to stave off national suicide. In State of Emergency, he provides a comprehensive primer for all politicians, activists, and concerned citizens who want to stop the flood of immigration before it's too late.
