    Very Insightful!!

    I enjoyed reading Hispanic because I sense a growing tide of angst against many Latinos and Hispanics. If you look Mexican, many times you are assumed to be here illegally. One thing all should agree with is that Immigration needs to be fixed. It is unrealistic to think that we could round up all illegals and send them out of the country. Mexicans are not the only ones here illegally. You have many Europeans that have over stayed their Visas. They benefit from their resembalance to mainstream America. You also have many Africans who are here illegally. We need to get everyone on the books and have them paying taxes immediately. Think of the time and money it would take to round up all illegals. People don't even want to pay for Health Care or Quality Education. The only part of the book that I took offense to is the sugarcoating of Fox's coverage of the Immigration debate. How do you think they get their ratings. CNN just had Lou Dobbs and that was it. I even included Lou Dobbs in my book Plain Talk. He almost had a slip up with Condelezza Rice.

    His Panic

    FINALLY THERE IS A BOOK THAT SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON ILLEGAL HISPANIC IMMIGRATION IN THIS COUNTRY -- IT IS 'HIS PANIC' His Panic: Why Americans Fear Hispanics in the U.S.. The book sets the record straight on hispanics and illegal immigration in this country and dispells numerous myths about immigration. For example the book establishes that: 1. no hispanic (illegal or otherwise) has ever been associated with a terrorist act in this country 2. the crime rate is ACTUALLY LOWER among illegal immigrants than the rest of the US population (see coincidentally Today's Wall Street Journal) 3. Puerto Ricans ARE actually United States Citizens and 4. All of the 9/11 highjackers entered this country legally with visas issued by INS (the predecessor to the Department of Homeland Security). I recommnend this book without reservation to anyone who wants to be informed on the most volitile issue of our time. By the way, I actually read the book and found it to be a great read.

    the truth

    Mr. Rivera is not only an American but a Hero to the Hispanic race.With bravery and without no regards to what people might think of him. He has written a Book that states the truth .Our ancestors were here in North America before the White Anglos as we know them now came here.White America wants to steal our human rights ,spanish language,religion and our mother Mexico.But it will never happen .........Besides this english language that is taught in puplic schools is not even a language African and BRITISH SPEAK TRUE ENGLISH .Anglo American is a Hillbilly taught language.....

    The journalistic novel, His Panic, is a compliation of Geraldo R

    The journalistic novel, His Panic, is a compliation of Geraldo Rivera’s evidence and facts about immigrants in America. He attempts to reverse the negative misconceptions about Hispanic immigrants, both legal and illegal. He mentions multiple times interviews with those who disagree with him, including Michelle Malkin and Lou Dobbs, and follows up with research to prove their arguments incorrect. He often uses Latino success stories as his counterarguements to these people, specifically those of Ediie Olmos and Cheech Martin. In other parts of the book he uses statistical evidence to prove that immigrants are not hurting the economy but rather helping it. Rivera can get a little personal at times and this leads to a less credible source, but in the chapters where he shows the statistics to back his argument it can be extremely convincing. I like the message of this novel because it is just telling American citizens not to fear immigrants because they contribute to the society just as much as anybody else. The thing I didn’t like about this book is that Rivera ridicules quite often. If someone doesn’t agree with him, Rivera kind of jokes about their ignorance and calls them “Neo-Know-Nothings”. This book would be a good read for those maybe gathering research on the topic of immigration or who want to know a little more of the journalistic side of immigration. I would not recommend this book to those looking for an interesting immigration novel because it can get a little repetitive and dull at times. Some of the emails the author shares are amusing but that is the extent of non-statistical sections. I would not recommend this for a school reading list just because high school kids wouldn’t be able to get through it, they would be extremely dissinterested. Overall, I would give this book a two out of five because the author lets his emotions get the best of his factual argument, and because Rivera rambles a lot (he probably could have gotten his point across in only 150 pages instead of 250).

    Terrible Point

    You know why Americans dont like illegal hispanics? Becse thy are ILLEGALly in this country. Just immigrate normally like the ret of the world has to and there wouldnt be a problem. If your country sucks, fix it. This isnt meant to be hateful, think of how successful the worlds great revolutions were. Stand up to your opression and leave the US out of it. We shiuld be isolationist anyways.

    It's all right

    It's an interesting read, but it only tells one side of the issue of illegal immigration. Geraldo has done his research, but only tells his bias acquired facts on illegal immigration. I read this and Michelle Malkin's 'Invasion' and have drawn my own conclusion about illegal immigration. The one thing that this book is lacking is another view and other facts. I would have given this book another star if he would have told both sides of illegal immigration.

    So bias

    All I got from this book is that America will become a utopia, not a welfare state, if we make every illegal alien and their families legal citizens of the U.S. and start giving them entitlements. This has got to be the most bias book I have ever read.
