Heather Mac Donald Interview 2003 Heather speaks Jan. 17, 2008 at Manhattan Institute conference on skid row policing

Jan. 15, 2008

Heather is in town for a Manhattan Institute conference Thursday on skid row policing.

I've never seen David in such a subdued mood.

The David Horowitz Freedom Center sent out this email praising Heather's new book on immigration:

Undoubtedly the United States needs a liberal and welcoming immigration policy, geared to the needs and interests of the nation. In this urgent new book, three astute observers argue that we have lost control of our southern border, so that the vast majority of our immigrants are now illegal Mexicans. Poor, uneducated, and unskilled, these newcomers add much less to the national wealth than they cost the taxpayers for their health care, the education of their children, and (too often) their incarceration. The Immigration Solution proposes a policy that admits skilled and educated people on the basis of what they can do for the country, not what the country can do for them.

The Immigration Solution is not just another book about the catastrophe caused by millions of illegal aliens flooding our country; it is a call to arms combined with an outline for a sensible immigration policy. If every member of Congress would read this book, we might be able to begin the process of securing our borders and reducing the number of illegal immigrants within them. - Congressman Tom Tancredo, R-Colorado
