Mexifornia: A State of Becoming Kindle Edition
Part history, part political analysis, and part memoir, Mexifornia is an intensely personal work by one of our most important writers. Victor Davis Hanson, known for his military histories and his social commentary, is a fifth-generation Californian who lives on a family farm in the Central Valley and has written eloquent elegies on the decline of agrarianism, Fields Without Dreams and The Land Was Everything. Here too, he ponders what has changed in California over the past quarter century, examining how the state and the Southwest more broadly—indeed, the entire nation—have been altered by hemorrhaging borders.
Hanson admires the ambition and vigor of immigrants who have helped make California strong, but he indicts the disordered immigration policies that led to the present mess. He also illuminates the ways those policies are harmful to people who have come from Mexico and Central America seeking a better life in the United States.
Nearly twenty years after the first publication of Mexifornia, Hanson offers an update on the continuing tragedy of illegal immigration. At the same time, he remains hopeful that our traditions of integration, assimilation, and intermarriage may yet remedy a predicament created by politicians and ideologues.

I enjoy his comments on FOX News and under stand him more since I read this book. It explains where he grew up and his brilliant perspective of the hoars of poor and illiterate socialists from the south of the boarder. ( Not the tacky motel on the Carolina state line)
Read this an LEARN A LOT
By Corey Lee Wilson on July 17, 2021
I'll leave you with one small section of one of the last chapters in the book to give you a glimpse of the contents:
"If Mexico had not been contiguous to the United States, if migration had only come in the thousands, not the millions, if self-proclaimed advocates on campus and in the media had been honest and responsible folk, and if this had remained an America of the melting pot rather than the separatist culture of the 1980s and 1990s, then, I think, we would have fewer problems with race, culture, and immigration. But that is a lot of ifs."
Too bad the gang-of-eight senators currently working on immigration reform don't take the time to read this book and understand the contents.
