The book “Illegals: The Unacceptable Cost of America's Failure to Control it’s Borders” by Darrell Ankarlo explores the costs and dangers of the current ‘open door’ policy. Ankarlo takes an in depth look into the underbelly of illegal immigration, making the issue real and personal.
While the book makes some good points and gives you many tidbits to ponder, it is definitely written from one perspective only. Ankarlo’s hard stance against illegal immigration at times feels like dramatic overkill. I would have appreciated a little less of the dramatics and more of the real stories. Some of the pictures and stories are quite shocking and I found I had to put the book down at times. Illegals does have some solid information and interesting opinions. I think this book is worth a read no matter what side of the debate you are on.
