Invasion: How America Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, and Other Foreign Menaces to Our Shores (ISBN 0-89526-075-1) is a 2002 book written by political commentator and author Michelle Malkin. In it, she states that the U.S. immigration system is plagued by bureaucratic inertia, political correctness, corruption and pressure from corporate special interests, that weaknesses in the US immigration system played a role in the September 11, 2001 attacks, and that criminals and terrorists are able to exploit loopholes to get into the United States.

Reviews[edit]

The book was reviewed primarily in conservative opinion journals. Malkin complained that the mainstream media ignored it.[1]

VDARE founder Peter Brimelow wrote of Malkin's book: "It may not advance her career. But it is a signal service to her country."[2] NewsMax.com gave it positive coverage.[3] FrontPage's review stated that "Malkin deserves praise for calling attention to problems that even many conservatives would prefer to ignore."[4]

The book was reviewed in National Review,[5] Reason Magazine,[6] and Human Events,[7] and reached #14 on the New York Times best-seller list.[8]
