Pat Buchanan is sounding the
alarm. Since 9/11, more than four million illegal immigrants have crossed our
borders, and there are more coming every day. Our leaders in Washington lack
the political will to uphold the rule of law. The Melting Pot is broken beyond
repair, and the future of our nation is at stake.
In this important book, Pat
Buchanan reveals that, slowly but surely, the great American Southwest is being
reconquered by Mexico. These lands—which many Mexicans believe are their
birthright—are being detached ethnically, linguistically, and culturally from
the United States by a deliberate policy of the Mexican regime. This is the “Aztlan
Plot” for “La Reconquista,” the recapture of the lands lost by Mexico in the
Texas War of Independence and Mexican-American War.
Comparing the immigrant invasion
of America from across the Mexican border—and of Europe from across the
Mediterranean—to the barbarian invasions that ended the Roman Empire, the
author writes with passion and conviction that we have begun the final chapter
of the Death of the West. Unless the invasion is halted now, Buchanan argues,
by midcentury America will be a country unrecognizable to our parents, the
Third World dystopia that Theodore Roosevelt warned against when he said we must
never let America become a “polyglot boardinghouse” for the world.
President Bush’s failure to halt
the invasion and secure America’s border, Buchanan writes, is a dereliction of
constitutional duty that, in other times, would have called forth articles of
impeachment. In the final chapter, “Last Chance,” he lays out a sweeping
immigration reform and border security plan, which, he contends, if not
pursued, means George W. Bush’s legacy will be to have lost for America a
Southwest that was the legacy of Sam Houston, Andrew Jackson, and James K.
Polk. With an estimated 10 to 15 million “illegals” already here and tens of
millions more poised to pour across our borders, few books could be as timely—or
important—as State of Emergency. It
is essential reading for all Americans.
