Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

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

Book Description

"The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities," said Theodore Roosevelt. State of Emergency will demonstrate that this is exactly what is happening to America and may now be unstoppable.
The United States of 1960 was a First World nation, 90% of whose people traced their ancestry to Europe, 97% of whom spoke English. We studied the same history and literature in school, went to the same movies, read the same books, listened to the same radio and TV, cherished the same heroes. We were one nation and one people.
That America is dead and gone. The deconstruction of America -- along the lines of culture and values, language and faith, allegiance and loyalty -- has begun. By 2050, Americans of European descent will be a minority in the United States. One hundred million Hispanics with ties of language and loyalty to Mexico and Latin America will be living here, concentrated in the Southwest
It is the thesis of State of Emergency that the Melting Pot is broken beyond repair, that assimilation and Americanization are not taking place, and that only action is to seal and secure America’s borders to halt the flow of over a million legal and illegal immigrants a year, and to begin the Americanization of the tens of millions of aliens in our midst can save America. Our civilization cannot survive indefinitely what is going on.
 State of Emergency reveals who is doing this to us, why they are doing it, why this is our last chance, and how, if the will is there, we can yet save America from Balkanization and break-up.

Pat Buchanan lays out the facts about what illegal immigration has done to America.
Raymond F. Kusler
All in all, an excellent book with viewpoints presented that you probably haven't thought of, and excellent points to use when discussing this issue with others.
Eye opening and informative, this one will make you think and I am sure that was Pats goal.

This is the first book by Buchanan I have read. In the past I viewed him as correct on the immigration issue but too focused on the cultural aspect and not focused enough on the anti-labor and anti-environmental effects of immigration policies touted by those who fradulently define themselves as "pro-labor" and "Green".

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.

It really does not matter on which side of the argument you fall on; you need to read this book. I did not agree with everything Mr. Buchanan said, nor will most. The great thing about this book is the overwhelming amount of statistics, history and other people's opinions (like JFK's) that are included. That is the meat of the book. The seemingly unending amount of shocking statistics (from trusted sources) is what hit me the most. He also brings up topics of the illegal immigration debate I had never thought of (i.e. the up swing in certain diseases brought in by the illegals and the increasingly bloody black v. Hispanic gang battle).

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.

I am a person who hass worked in national politics for 12 years and always on the Democratic side of the aisle. I have, however, woken up to the reality that BOTH parties are afraid to say what Pat Buchanan says so well in this book : we are being invaded by criminal illegals, and we have to act now to stop our country from being taken over by uneducated, poor criminals who have no desire to become part of America.

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.

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.
