Mark Krikorian steps back from todays debates and examines the big picture, questioning the place of immigration in a modern society. Agree or disagree with his proposals, this is an important book not just for conservatives, but for all Americans.
-- William J. Bennett, host of Bill Bennetts Morning in America
Superbly researched and brilliantly argued, The New Case Against Immigration should settle the debate once and for all. Civilized, compassionate, and wise, this short book may save a great nation.
-- David Frum, resident fellow, American Enterprise Institute
Mark Krikorian has waged an often lonely war to restore some sanity to immigration policy. His latest book will be caricatured by many as insensitiveespecially his calls to select legal immigrants carefully only on the basis of skills and merit. Yet The New Case Against Immigration is a classically liberal call for assimilation and integration in the best past traditions of a multiracial America. The onus is on his critics to show where his economic, cultural, and social arguments are flawed or inexactand that will be difficult indeed, given such a carefully researched and argued book.
-- Victor Davis Hanson, Hoover Institution, Stanford University; author of Mexifornia
This is a radical book, clearly and forcefully written, with the potential to change the immigration debate forevermore. No matter where you stand on immigration policy, you better be ready to confront The New Case Against Immigration.
-- Heather MacDonald, John M. Olin Fellow, Manhattan Institute; coauthor of The Immigration Solution
Mark Krikorian concisely marshals the arguments on one side of the immigration debate. I am sure that many will disagree with his inferences and conclusionsbut I am also sure that anyone wishing to seriously argue the other side will have to address the many questions and doubts presented here. In short, this is a must-read for anyone interested in the most volatile social policy issue of the new century.

Mark Krikorian has been the go-to guy for those of us skeptical of the Bush- McCain approach to immigration. He combines deep knowledge, political savvy, calm and compassion with something thats rare in this field: common sense. In this ambitious book he takes the immigration debate a step further, placing it in an overarching framework that will be as controversial as it is powerful. If you want to find all the best anti-amnesty arguments in one place, The New Case Against Immigration is the place to look. It is to the immigration debate what Losing Ground was to the poverty debate. My copy is already dog-eared.
