Immigration books abound

Immigration continues to make headlines in America. Several new books provide valuable information on this issue.

I earlier reported the publication of In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America's Border and Security by Congressman Tom Tancredo.

Now, the founder of the Minuteman Project, Jim Gilcrest, has written a book with Jerome Corsi entitled Minuteman: The Battle to Secure America's Borders. You can read excerpts from the book on guest worker amnesty, taxing the middle class, and the Reconquista movement. The publisher's description follows.

Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders by Jim Gilchrist and Jerome Corsi

President Bush has called them vigilantes, but millions of Americans call them heroes -- and they're determined to make sure that what happened on September 11, 2001 never happens again. They're the Minutemen, the new all-volunteer group dedicated to reasserting control over our borders. What does border control have to do with 9/11? Everything: on 9/11, over 3,000 Americans were brutally slaughtered because immigration laws had not been enforced. America is at war today abroad because our borders have been rendered irrelevant at home.

In 2004, the decorated Marine veteran and patriot Jim Gilchrist determined to do something about it. Armed with only binoculars and cell phones, Gilchrist and his fellow patriots proved that America's porous borders could be successfully guarded, and in the process set off a national debate on an issue the Federal government had long ignored. In Minutemen: The Battle to Secure America's Borders, Gilchrist teams up with bestselling author Jerome Corsi to provide a shocking firsthand account of the fierce battle that is raging today at America's southern border -- and the plucky team of patriots that is fighting for our country there.

Minutemen describes in vivid detail how our nation's southern border has disintegrated into a horrifying, anything-goes Wild West of human trafficking, drug smuggling, and violent gangs. But Gilchrest and Corsi also explain here why out-of-control illegal immigration poses a threat not only to the border regions, but also to our nation as a whole. They detail why illegal immigration amounts to nothing less than a Trojan Horse invasion of our country, and a springboard for Mexico's ambitious plan to reconquer the American southwest. They clarify why illegal immigration is now creating a massive crisis in social services, saddling the American middle class with an immense, onerous tax burden, giving street gangs and drug cartels free rein in American cities, and even providing a handy escape route for killers fleeing justice in Mexico. Even jihad terrorists have taken notice of our porous borders, and are taking full advantage of them.

They elucidate the role that NAFTA and our need for oil have played in creating this crisis -- and above all, the show how an awareness of all this led Gilchrest to found the Minutemen. Like their Revolutionary War predecessors who defended America against a hostile foreign power, today's Minutemen have risen up to answer their nation's call against another invasion. Minutemen is their story. And best of all, Gilchrest and Corsi show what we can and must do now in order to reclaim America.

With anti-American protestors taking to the streets of all our large cities to demand citizenship for all illegals, and with the President of the United States himself endorsing open borders, it has never been more critical for American citizens to understand the massive social, economic and security problems caused by illegal immigration. Minutemen makes that possible with a refreshing combination of facts and straight talk. This book is an urgent call to arms that no American can afford to ignore.

In Minutemen, Gilchrest and Corsi reveal:

Why the President's non-enforcement of our immigration laws is a disgrace to the sacrifices made by countless Americans to preserve American freedom

American taxpayers: how they're forced to pay the staggering economic and cultural price tag of illegal immigration -- and why our government wants to keep the true costs hidden from the public

How the government of Mexico actually encourages the mass emigration of millions of impoverished peasants -- and will stop at nothing to keep the border open

The huge number of illegal border crossings: why they are not discrete, random events, but actions of a carefully controlled mass movement

Why drug lords are so intent on controlling who gets across the border and how

Why some liberal Catholic Church leaders are speaking out in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants

Why so many "intellectuals" believe that Americans (and the world) would be better off if globalization replaced Washington with a multilateral authority -- and how the attack on our borders fits into that view

How the Minuteman Project's opponents tried to intimidate it with legal opposition and media attacks

The not-so-secret plan to submerge American sovereignty within a large North American economic and political union

Plus: a pledge for politicians to help guide and fortify them to make the right choices about illegal immigration
Now comes the announcement of a new book on immigration by Pat Buchanan. It is entitled State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America. From the publisher's description, it sounds like a follow-up to Death of the West, which would be a welcome development indeed.

State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America by Pat Buchanan

Civilizations die by suicide, not murder, says Patrick Buchanan, and liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide. Its ideas, pursued to their logical end, will prove fatal. And none of those ideas is as certain to bring our civilization to an unhappy end as the proposition that America's borders must be open to any and all comers, legal and illegal. In State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America, Buchanan explains why the very life of our nation is at stake in the immigration debate. If immigration and border controls aren't reintroduced, it will be the end of America as we know it -- and soon.

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.

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.
