Congressman Tom Tancredo explains in cogent, rational detail how America is heading down the road to ruin. He believes that the incredible economic success and military prowess of the United States has transformed a nation founded on Judeo-Christian principles of right and wrong into an overindulgent, self-deprecating, immoral cesspool of depravity. Without strong, moral leadership, without a renewed sense of purpose, without a rededication to family and community, without shunning the race hustlers and pop-culture sham artists, without protecting our borders, language, and culture, the nation that once was the land of the free and home of the brave" and the "one last hope of mankind" will repeat the catastrophic mistakes of the past. "In Mortal Danger" is his prescription for repairing the damage."

This book was well writen. It discusses the truth on illegal immigration and Americas broken immigration system. It also talks about terrism. The issue of illegal immigration and border security is an issue any American of any ethnicty,religion,or background should understand and I think Tom Tancredo did a good job of explaining it in this book.
I agree, the America's borders are in danger and it does affect security...For those who think this its only about low wages Americans can't live on, should pay more attention to people who protest in favor of illegal immigration...For example, in Denver, Colorado, protesters waved Mexican flags and brandished signs saying: ¿Uncle Sam Stole Our Land!¿ and: ¿If you think I¿m illegal because I¿m a Mexican, learn the true history, because I¿m in my homeland.¿ ¿Today we march, tomorrow we vote¿ In Dallas, Texas, on April 9, 2006 half a million people marched, again waving Mexican flags with ¿Our Lady of Guadalupe¿ (an immensely popular ¿apparition¿ of the ¿Virgin Mary¿ in Mexico). We need more books out there like this one, there is a war going on for America's borders!
I REALLY APPRIEATED THIS BOOK 'IN MORTAL DANGER' THE LAWMAKER WHO WROTE THIS BOOK TRULY OPENED MY EYES TO THE GRAVE THREAT THAT AMERICA IS FACING WITH OUR BORDERS. THIS PUBLICATION SHOWS THAT OUR BORDERS ARE A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE CAUSE TERRORISTS CAN CROSS OUR BORDERS AND IT NOT JUST ILLEGALS. THIS IS A REAL FAST PAGE TURNER AND PERHAPS THIS BOOK WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN FOREIGN POLICY. GREAT GIFT IDEA FOR A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER.
This book provides an excellent assessment of the right-wing backlash against migrant workers. Tancredo has a voting record that demonstrates antagonism toward immigrants who seem to be doing all the work that US workers are unwilling to do at dismally low wages. The book provides an interesting examination of a congressman's thinking, but the work does not provide an accurate historical portrait of U.S. immigration and migration policy. The book also seems to take the position that foreigners are a burden to our society and will ultimately lead to its unraveling. No matter the position one takes on this subject, the book will not help the U.S. grapple with the immigration issue during an era when capiatlist-dominated globalization seems to be pushing for an opening to foreign guestworkers. The title MORTAL DANGER exaggerates the threat of foreigners, and does not provide the historical backdrop to the fabric of the nation. Surprisingly revealing is the political calculation of a member of the the U.S. House of Representatives and the necessity of appealing to a avaricious political base to gain ground. The timing of the book, perfect for the elections, will surely help among those who -- right or wrong -- champion a closed immigration policy. Otherwise the book is revealing in demonstrating the power of nativist ideology and its sway within the Republican party.
