The writer, not surprisingly, seems overly protective of the USA economy. In his haste to show how the third world's influx in the USA is weakening its economy, he comes across either as highly prejudicial, lacking in depth and the leuristics of reasoning on the issue, or afraid of the unknown or both. He his quite eloquent in his verbiage but needs to relax and see the true value of immigration and the intermingling of all peoples whether from so-called third world countries, secong or first! It is a good book to the extent that it shows up so much fallacy and as a consequence a great springboard for sound, opposing arguments. I give him five stars for the book, from that perspective.

Pat Buchanan takes the gloves off and comes out swinging in his new book, State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America.--TB. Buchanan criticism of Israel has noticeably been taken up a notch. Buchanan warns that the children born in 2006 will witness in their lifetimes the death of the West. He mentions that one in every twelve people breaking into America has a criminal record. By 2050, there will be 100 million Hispanics concentrated in the U.S. Southwest. Buchanan hits the president hard-- Concerned about his legacy, George W. Bush may yet live to see his name entered into the history of his country as the president who lost the American Southwest that James K. Polk won for the United States.--PB. Pat Buchanan charges the Mexican regime with an Aztlan Plot, a conscious campaign to use America as a dumping ground for its poor and unemployed, both to relieve social pressure and effect a cultural re-annexation of the American Southwest. La Reconquista, the reconquest of the lands lost by Mexico in the Mexican-American War, Buchanan charges, is underway. The Republican Party, a wholly owned subsidiary of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is in the grip of a cult called economism.
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. A ten-year moratorium on all legal immigration, at the level JFK favored in 1958 -- 150,000 to 250,000 a year. A 10-billion dollar, 2000-mile double-line security fence between the United States and Mexico, built with no apologies to Mexico City. I leave you with a few words from Mr. Buchanan-- As I write these lines, the big black headline on Drudge reads, Arizona Governor Orders Troops to Mexican Border.
Both Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano and New Mexico's Bill Richardson have now declared a state of emergency on their border. Why? Because our border is descending into a state of anarchy, as 5,000 illegal aliens daily attempt to cross our Mexican frontier and drug traffickers, with renegade Mexican army troops sometimes backing them up, attempt to run narcotics into the United States.--PB.

A great discussion of US immigration, supported with a lot of statistics. This is a difficult problem for America. It cannot be solved overnight and it is being hotly discussed as long as I can remember. It is a very delicate issue for all president candidates. Therefore I found very important the author discussion of political correctness, and political opportunism. This is a book that all Americans should read.
