Overview

Historically based, this mystery adventure portrays the nation's immigration policy continuing to unravel even with the gratuitous 1986 amnesty for illegal aliens. In fact, bad things are ensuing in the aftermath of the enactment of amnesty, with all its ramifications. As always, a sinister element is at work but this time, even more so. Nicky James Barrot, who joined the U.S. Border Patrol to escape a failed marriage, becomes embroiled in an incident on the border, is transferred as a special agent with investigations to Los Angeles, California, and is caught up in enforcing the new employer sanctions law. Now, mysterious persons and events, as well as suspicious circumstances and consequences are unfolding while Barrot's past continues to haunt him. The Employer Sanctions Unit is viewed as too successful by some, and Nicky soon finds himself fighting not only to uphold the law but for his life as well.

    When Knights Wore Shining Armor

    I couldn't put it down and read it from cover to cover, remembering those turbulent years and the more sinister events from which the author drew to spin this delightful tale of life within the old Immigration and Naturalization Service. While written with artistic flair, there are many kernels of truth underlying the events that took place within the book. Certainly his depictions of INS "surveys" of factories conducted after congress passed the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) have the stamp of truth to those of us who participated in them.

    Nicky's book is a timely reminder that when congress passes legislation designed to control illegal immigration to the United States, it must give the agencies involved all the tools and support they need to carry out the task. For this abuse of immigration laws to stop, true and meaningful sanctions must be imposed on the unscrupulous employers who exploit the illegal alien labor market for their own financial gain. This book tells that story.
