It is crucially important to understand, if you are considering buying this book, that there is absolutely nothing here that slanders immigrants or suggests that immigrants are lawbreakers by association; such reviews are the inevitable consequence of being so lost in one's own rhetoric that words begin to lose meaning; at worst, these are people who didn't read beyond the front flap of the dustcover, if that much. Malkin describes how ridiculously easy it is to cross the border from Canada, that border (in a post 9-11 world) being patrolled by less than 100 troopers at a time. Get out a map, and look at that border, then think of less than 100 employees. Recently the news has been tripping over stories of "five wanted Pakistanis" who crossed over from Canada. As my title says, it's just another day in the hot-dog factory... The immigration computer system is underused, and in many instances, not even properly installed. Immigration regularly clears immigrants with extensive criminal records in their home countries, including violent offenders. I don't see this as being undesirable discrimination. ... This is not a conservative or liberla issue, it's a common sense one. It's a matter of making sure the security of this country comes first - which is how it is supposed to be, according to the Constitution and the CIA charter. ... This book really helped me to understand just how much of a mess our immigration system is, how badly its priorities have been misplaced, and how this flies in the face of our supposed desire to curb terrorism here in the US. If you don't read it, it should be because you really don't want to know just how bad the system is; but NOT because it is 'politically incorrect'. The last time I checked, truth didn't have much of an agenda.
Michele Malkin makes her point with documented case after documented case. Hard-left liberals and those who like cheap illegal immigrant workers may not like what she has to say, but her arguments and the facts speak for themselves. An excellent and easy read.
