Format: Hardcover
Illegal immigration is one of the biggest problems facing this nation since the terror attacks on 9-11. However, getting Washington D.C. to do anything about it is near impossible.

Actually, this book addresses why illegal immigration is bad for Mexico. Why? It allows the corrupt and rich government of Mexico to ignore reforms to help the majority of their nation. That over looked fact has been bothering this reviewer. While all the free trade and pro-illegal immigration people call the anti-illegal immigration people racists they ignore the fact that the corrupt Mexican goverment is full of crime and oppression. The pro-immigration crowd actually hurts the relatives of the people who come to America.

Tancredo does a great job of telling of the law enforcement problems, the budget problems, and the potential health problems of this huge wave of humanity. Note, the Representative will talk of the great immigration wave of the turn of the 19th Century and how those people had to meet a health screening. Right now there is no health screening for the mass of humanity coming across the border. This nation is asking for a break out of a disease. And Washington does nothing.

Representative Tancredo does a great job giving solutions to the problem. It's quite unfair that illegal immigrants are used to depress the wage scales of working Americans. Employeers should be held criminally responsible for this. If the solutions that Representative Tancredo offers then the USA can control the problem that floods our borders.

If Representative Tancredo solutions are not met then we can look forward to great change in the USA that will not be for the better. We will have a large number of people who will not have loyality to this nation, they have loyality to the customs and traditions of Mexico. And this problem may endanger the future of this nation.

This is a five star book.

Format: Hardcover
For those Americans who do not follow politics, (you know who you are) One voice has stood basically alone on Capital Hill leading the battle against illegal immigration. That lone voice has been assaulted with endless criticism from virtually all fronts, ranging from big business to the liberal media. Thank God Tom Tancredo (R-CO) has not withered from the incessant criticism and in the dominion of gloried statesmen such as Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry, has stood fast for what is RIGHT for America. In his book, IN MORTAL DANGER: THE BATTLE FOR AMERICA'S BORDER AND SECURITY, Tancredo brings readers up to date as to why this battle he wages is so critical for America's future.

America has long held a "re-active" stance on issues, particularly where foreign policy is concern. Tancredo encourages taking "pro-active" measures before it's too late. (And that window of opportunity is rapidly closing).

As little as four years ago, Tom Tancredo was a virtual unknown among capital hill members of the House of Representatives. Today, he has successfully formed the 90+ member Immigration Reform Caucus and has established himself firmly as the leader in this important aspect of future generations.

You will find everything here you expect in a book of this nature. All the relevant statistics are included in frightening detail. But Tancredo goes a great deal further than just filling this book with statistics.

Format: Hardcover
Read the book in 2 sittings. Having read most of the books out on said topic, this 1 so far takes the cake. Prior to this 1, Dougherty's Illegals probably held 1st place. Both are bone chilling in their scholarship and revelation; and they both kind of work together. But I believe this 1 to be just a nose out in front.

Tancredo enunciates the problems in depth from virtually all angles: The myths people have bought in to that we're better off in some ways (we're not); the monetary expense on all fronts and how it's bankrupting us (schools overtaxed & overloaded, hospitals closing); the health issues and what many problems and diseases are being introduced into our society by illegals; crime, gang, and prison-overload issues; political and terrorist ramifications (MASSIVE ONES!!!); even stupidity, corruption and abuses and abuses of processes, on both sides of the border in virtually all departments up to and apparently including the U.S. Judiciary itself.(But on this last, I suppose what can we expect when court jesters in England had a better knowledge & understanding of the law than many U.S. lawyers do today.)

What adds on the highest star is that it doesn't just enunciate the problems. It delineates a course to correct the problem, if we have the testicular fortitude to do it; and soon.

I had no idea that some of these things had been going on in my country. Tom's, tell it like it is style, boils down the real risks of a do nothing attitude. I believe that he speaks to the millions of American's who have been asleep for too long. How can anyone living in America, read this book and not see the effects of illegal immigration on our communities, schools, healthcare and security. I think that his plan to fix the borders will be implemented and that it's only a matter of time. After reading this book I can no longer say I didn't know, but it's nice to know I can do something and there is a solution. I would defiantly recommend this to all my American friends, liberals included. Thanks, for the lesson Tom!! I learned a lot!!
