Illegals by Darrell Ankarlo, isa compelling account of the dangers America faces by failing to control our borders. Ankarlo examines the costs and effects of illegal immigration. This book goes beyond sound-bite reporting to expose the real and raw truth of this hot-button issue. Through his own personal account, Ankarlo takes us on his undercover journey sharing heart-wrenching stories that are brutally honest and compelling.
Initially, I expected a broader focus of immigration in light of a post 9/11 society; Ankarlo does make a case for the immediate dangers Americans face on the Us-Mexico border especially in the hardest hit state of Arizona. The book does provide a number of resources for the reader to gain more knowledge on this issue.
While you may not necessarily agree with Ankarlo’s views, the first half of the book sheds light on the deeper issues of illegal immigration. Unfortunately, Ankarlo tries to cover a comprehensive subject all in one book. The second half of the book seems somewhat out of place. However, this book will definitely generate a healthy debate on the issue.
