"The simple truth is that we've lost control of our own borders, and no nation can do that and survive." ―Ronald Reagan
America is under siege, facing a hostile invasion on its own soil that most of its citizens know nothing about: the invaders are illegal immigrants, their battleground is the U.S-Mexico border, and what's at stake is the money, security, and freedom of all Americans.
In this chilling exposé, investigative journalist Jon Dougherty contends that today's unchecked immigration is destroying the very fabric of our culture and endangering American lives. With alarming new evidence, Dougherty argues that illegal immigrants are brazenly turning America's welcome mat into a doormat and our reckless policies and lackluster restrictions are allowing criminals, drug lords, and even terrorists to take advangtage of our freedoms. "If 9/11 can't get us to secure our borders," says Dougherty, "nothing will!"
Featuring compelling real-life accounts from the people who engage in the battle on the border every day―Border Patrol agents, local residents, and citizen-enforcement groups―this book shows definitively how illegal immigration costs taxpayers greatly and threatens the lives of all Americans, native-born and otherwise. It also proves once and for all that our government is doing nothing to stop this ever-growing crisis.
This is the untold, unnerving story of life on the U.S.-Mexico border―how illegal immigration is quicklly making us all strangers in our own country.
