You already know that we have an immigration crisis in America.
You know that our southern border isn’t a border at all—it’s an open migrant highway.
Now, in this gripping exposé from #1 nationally bestselling author Michelle Malkin, you’ll discover that the immigration crisis is no accident. Powerful special interest groups are pulling strings behind the scenes to keep America’s borders open so that a flood of cheap labor can enrich our nation’s elite and new generations of Democratic voters can steal our political future. Who is funding America’s immigration crisis? Who is profiting off of our vulnerability? In Open Borders, Inc., Malkin follows the money and motives to show that how we’re falling victim to a massive immigration scam.
"Narrator Vikas Adam proves to be an excellent partner to author Suketu Mehta in this detailed and absorbing narrative...His facility with smooth pronunciation in a range of Indic and European languages and judiciously restrained use of sarcasm to relay irony combine to make a compelling book an even more compelling listen. The power of storytelling to convey truth is demonstrated here." — AudioFile Magazine
A timely argument for why the United States and the West would benefit from accepting more immigrants.
There are few subjects in American life that prompt more discussion and controversy than immigration. But do we really understand it? In This Land Is Our Land, the renowned author Suketu Mehta attacks the issue head-on. Drawing on his own experience as an Indian-born teenager growing up in New York City and on years of reporting around the world, Mehta subjects the worldwide anti-immigrant backlash to withering scrutiny. As he explains, the West is being destroyed not by immigrants but by the fear of immigrants.
Mehta juxtaposes the phony narratives of populist ideologues with the ordinary heroism of laborers, nannies, and others, from Dubai to Queens, and explains why more people are on the move today than ever before. As civil strife and climate change reshape large parts of the planet, it is little surprise that borders have become so porous. But Mehta also stresses the destructive legacies of colonialism and global inequality on large swaths of the world: When today’s immigrants are asked, “Why are you here?” they can justly respond, “We are here because you were there.” And now that they are here, as Mehta demonstrates, immigrants bring great benefits, enabling countries and communities to flourish.
Impassioned, rigorous, and richly stocked with memorable stories and characters, This Land Is Our Land is a timely and necessary intervention, and a literary polemic of the highest order.
"The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities," said Theodore Roosevelt. State of Emergency will demonstrate that this is exactly what is happening to America and may now be unstoppable.
The United States of 1960 was a First World nation, 90% of whose people traced their ancestry to Europe, 97% of whom spoke English. We were one nation and one people.
That America is dead and gone. The deconstruction of America—along the lines of culture and values, language and faith, allegiance and loyalty—has begun. By 2050, Americans of European descent will be a minority in the United States. One hundred million Hispanics with ties of language and loyalty to Mexico and Latin America will be living here, concentrated in the Southwest.
It is the thesis of State of Emergency that the Melting Pot is broken beyond repair, that assimilation and Americanization are not taking place, and that only action to seal and secure America's borders to halt the flow of over a million legal and illegal immigrants a year, and to begin the Americanization of the tens of millions of aliens in our midst can save America. State of Emergency will tell us who is doing this to us, why they are doing it, why this is our last chance, and how, if the will is there, we can yet save America.
