In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security

Author: Tom Tancredo
Publisher: Cumberland House Publishing • 2006 • 224 pages

As chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) is the most consistent and outspoken champion of ending illegal immigration and securing our borders. Now, in his new book, “In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security,” Tancredo not only explains the dangers we face from porous borders and a broken immigration system — but also goes deeper, showing how these are only symptoms of more fundamental problems in our culture and politics.

Tancredo begins with the most fundamental question of all — what it means to be an American — and then examines the forces and ideas that working to undermine our loyalties and institutions. America, he argues, is facing an “identity crisis,” one that is exacerbated by massive immigration but not caused by it. The real culprits, he shows, are the determined ideologues in our government, our schools, and our media who are promoting the “cult of multiculturalism” and the cause of bilingualism to destroy American unity, paving the way for social chaos.

Then, in a series of powerful chapters, Tancredo delves into the economics of massive immigration, its devastating impact on our communities, the national security threats, the strain on our healthcare system, and the consequences for our environment and quality of life. Finally, he offers concrete suggestions for reforms that might slow down, even reverse, our slide into self-destruction. Without strong, moral leadership, he warns, without a rededication to family and community, without shunning the race hustlers and pop-culture sham artists, without protecting borders, language and culture, the nation that once was “the land of the free and home of the brave” and the “one last best hope of mankind” will suffer the same fate as the great fallen empires of the past.

“Tom Tancredo is a rare breed in Washington who puts principle above ego and country above party. In Mortal Danger is a clarion call for all good citizens to come to the aid of this great nation. Our borders, culture, history, and institutions are at risk. Tancredo’s lucid, passionate book shows the way to protect them.”
