Our family became involved in trying to increase funding and support for border security, in particular for National Park Service areas, after the murder of our son/brother, US Park Ranger Kristopher William Eggle on August 9, 2002 at Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument in southern Arizona. Since his death, we have sought to spread the word about the sad state of our border areas, in particular the Arizona-Mexico border.
In light of the heightened interest in "Homeland Security" that has come about since the 9-11 terrorist attacks, we have been shocked and appalled by the unwillingness of authorities to crack down on illegal immigration from Mexico in particular. We know firsthand the ease with which any illegal alien --- Mexican or other, including potential terrorists --- can walk or even drive into the United States. It is a chilling thought.

Inspector General's Recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior
Inspector General's Report on Law Enforcement in the Department of
Invasion by Michelle Malkin
From the Publisher:
Worse, the problems have persisted long after September 11. Plagued by inertia, political correctness, and corruption, the U.S. government refuses to enforce its immigration laws with consistency and common sense.
Malkin's conclusions and recommendations are stark and no-nonsense. But so is the job of protecting American lives. If you are ready for the blood-boiling truth about the dangers we face inside our own borders, no other book tells it like Invasion.

Unguarded Gates: A History of
America's Immigration Crisis
In this tightly-argued work, immigration scholar Otis Graham examines the history of immigration pressures and American policy debates and choices. He begins with the first "Great Wave" of the 1880's and traces the effects of the system of national origins, enforced from the 1920's through 1965. The reforms of the 1960's ushered in an era of large-scale legal and illegal immigration, resulting in a vast social experiment in demographic transformation. In assessing the past, present, and future of immigration, Graham shows that the failure to control the influx of foreigners is leading America toward further security risks, unsustainable population growth, imported worker competition with American labor, and, ultimately, social fragmentation.
